ABOUT THE COURSE

Course code: W470 - Institution code: W52

Our Performing Arts HNC provides a professionally-focused, industry-based qualification for moving into work or onto further study.

Benefitting from strong partnerships with local theatres, acting agents and creative organisations within Islington and Camden, this course specialises in providing actor and theatre training that is relevant and current.

You will learn physical and vocal performance skills as well as looking in-depth at a range of acting and performance techniques. Making creative work as part of a company will be an integral part of the programme, as will regular input from external practitioners and experts, giving you a comprehensive understanding of this industry.

You will also take performance work out on tour to different communities and will perform work that is responsive to current local, national and global issues. You will be supported to enhance your individual characteristics and develop your talents so that you are fully prepared to present yourself to the professional industry.

WHAT WILL I NEED?

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

The course provides you with opportunities to test your understanding of the subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Some modules may contain at least one piece of practice or 'formative' assessment for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark.

There is a formal or 'summative' assessment at the end of each module. Assessment methods include written examinations and a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and your final year major project. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.

Method of assessment

The balance of assessment by examination and assessment by coursework depends to some extent on the modules that form part of your course. The majority of the courses offered at the college use coursework as the main method of assessment. Further information regarding the methods of assessment for your course can be obtained from the Course Manager.

Feedback

You will receive feedback on all practice assessments and on formal assessments undertaken by coursework. Feedback on examination performance is available upon request from the module leader. Feedback is intended to help you learn and you are encouraged to discuss it with your module tutor. We normally aim to provide you with feedback on your assessment within 10 working days of hand-in.
