Structure of study

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.

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.

Entry requirements

The Digital Leadership Programme entry requirements are not based on qualifications, but rather on aptitude and attitude. Each applicant to the part time course is accessed on a case by case basis.
