Experience

Students will spend 50% of their time working on real-world projects. In year one of the course these projects are provided by global brands, and in year two project time is split between students’ own projects and industry projects. Students are guided and assisted in the delivery of both industry and individual projects by the core DLP team, who are experienced industry practitioners. This practical project work means that students leave with both qualifications and an enviable list of brands that they have worked with, giving them real-world experience.

Learning

The digital Leadership Programme is very much focussed on ‘active learning’ and students will learn in a wide variety of ways. This includes all of the following:

  • Interactive lectures in our custom-built facility.
  • Group ‘hands-on’ learning in our iMac equipped media studio.
  • Group exercises and tasks using the many work-spaces available in the facility.
  • Guided media production using the podcast and video studio.
  • Online learning using interactive elearning, live video streaming, podcasts and video library.
  • Guest speakers including business leaders, subject matter experts and industry practitioners.

Study

Study time is split between these forms of active learning and working on live projects to complete tasks for real-world business. Global brands and good causes provide projects that students can work on, with the assistance of the core programme team of industry practitioners. Students will be closely assisted while they carry on the tasks and get constant feedback on improving and developing their skills. Students are also able to get experience within organisations on short-work placements, workplace tours and lectures/workshops delivered in different locations. Currently, these placements are planned for Jersey, UK and the US.

Assessment & Projects

The Digital Leadership Programme’s commitment to active learning also means that we don’t think that exams are a good indication of learning. Students are accessed based on project work and assignments, either based directly on real-world projects or on assignments created to simulate real-world scenarios as closely as possible.
