INTRODUCTION This unit forms the major part of the last three terms of the course. It is envisaged that you will synthesise your experience to give a highly individual final outcome. Skills and knowledge acquired in previous studies will be built upon within the final major project. You will also be able to demonstrate academic and personal skills appropriate to your future career and life aspirations. EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon successful completion of this unit you will be able to demonstrate: 1. the ability to sustain an independent programme of work involving effective decision-making and the organisation of time, materials and facilities; 2. the ability to analyse, evaluate and problem solve effectively within course requirements; 3. the ability to reflect on strengths and weaknesses and set goals, establish priorities and plan action; 4. a wide and critical knowledge of current research in your specialism; 5. the ability to communicate effectively in one to one and group settings (include presentations that promote own skills to others) and write effectively for a range of audiences using a range of genres; 6. the ability to make informed decisions about study and career choices based in an understanding of self, priorities and constraints; 7. conceptual understanding that enables you to generate appropriate outcomes related to your specialism in an objective, professional, creative and mature manner; 8. evidence of the engagement with the PPD principles outlined in this document and on Blackboard.

ASSESSMENT MARKING MATRIX The unit is designed to enable you to demonstrate the learning outcomes by completing the assessments.

a body of work which constitutes the Final major project, this must be drawn together in a meaningful, coherent and professionally organised presentation in the format agreed in the project proposal;

the outcomes of the project are agreed through negotiation with tutors;

the practical elements will be negotiated with your tutors and should be achievable within the learning hours for this unit.

Assessment will be against the specified marking criteria. BRIEFING DATE: 1 December 2012 ASSESSMENT AND PROJECT BRIEF Having clearly established the foundations and potential projections of your stage 3 process through the Research Planning and Final Major Project Proposal units you now have the opportunity to put the findings into practice. The Final Major Project provides you with the opportunity to respond to your personally defined line of enquiry and to achieve your objectives through the use of a considered and coherent realisation process. The context and deployment of your Independent project will have been planned and agreed during the research and development of the Final Major Project Proposal unit. You will have negotiated the parameters of study and areas for further investigation in consultation with tutors. The Final Major Project provides you with the opportunity to further develop your proposed investigation through a considered and exploratory process of critical analysis, evaluation, realisation and ongoing reflection. The Final Major Project represents the final outcome of the stage 3 process, planning how you synthesize your research and exploratory development process, into a coherent realised contemporary fashion outcome will form a critical part of the strategic process that you will consider from the outset. Consideration and understanding of how and where your product is to reside in the world of fashion is vital to your success both from an academic and professional stance. Your submission and project is your showcase to the academic, public and professional world, it deserves to be managed, developed and communicated in a way that truly reflects your high standards and capabilities and career aspirations. There are a number of formative and summative assessment points which contribute to the holistic assessment process. Attendance at tutorials, workshops and time management will be considered as part of your professional management and PPD outcomes. Students may select to produce outcomes that are: 100% Practical equivalent to 4 x completed outfits plus a supporting body of work. Or A partially theorized/alternative submission of (3,000 words or equivalent) as negotiated through the 3


project proposal and independent project process and a practical equivalent to 3 x completed outfits plus a supporting body of work. Or A negotiated submission through Final Major Project Proposal which must include specific exploration and research together with technical investigation and garments with a supporting body of work.

UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS LONDON ATTENDANCE POLICY The University is required to monitor your attendance and report, as appropriate, to the UK Borders Agency, the Local Education Authorities and the Student Loans Company. As such you must inform us of any changes to your contact details and /or immigration status (if relevant). As a student at the University of the Arts London you are expected to attend all timetabled sessions, including lectures, seminars, group and individual tutorials, learning support sessions, workshops, inductions and demonstrations. Regular attendance means that you can take full advantage of the learning and teaching opportunities available to you and gain the greatest benefit from the course. Poor attendance not only affects you but also affects others who rely on you in group projects and for peer learning: where group work and peer learning is central to the subject, poor attendance can lead to failure of assessment. If you regularly miss sessions you will be contacted by your Course Director or Personal Tutor and offered the opportunity to discuss any difficulties that might be affecting your attendance and ways in which the University might help you attend more regularly. If your attendance continues to be poor you will receive a warning letter, your visa or student loan could be revoked and, eventually, you will be withdrawn from the course. The University recognises that you may need to undertake part time employment to support your studies and may have other commitments such as childcare or family or religious events. However the University does expect you, wherever possible, to fit these commitments around timetabled sessions in order to take part in the course fully. If you are aware of an event (for example, an offer of work experience or a religious holiday) that is going to disrupt your attendance at taught sessions you must discuss this with your personal tutor or Course Director. This helps to ensure that you do not miss important sessions that could affect your performance at assessment and also allows the University to make sure that the requirements of the Student Loans Company and UK Borders Agency continue to be met. Remember, if you are studying with us on a student visa, the University has a legal obligation to inform the UK Borders Agency if you: · do not enrol for your course by the latest agreed start date; · withdraw, or are withdrawn, from your course, take time out from your course, or exceed the number of permitted unauthorised absences; · change or transfer to a course of a shorter length; · break the conditions of your permission to stay in the UK.   LONDON COLLEGE OF FASHION When you start your course you will be given a course timetable. You will be expected to attend classes in accordance with this timetable. The reason for any absence should be reported to the course tutor / course director and, in the case of sickness absence of five days or longer, must be supported by a medical certificate. If you withdraw from the course you must provide written notification to your Course Tutor / Course Director without delay. You must see your Course Handbook for full information regarding attendance regulations. There are key contact points for each course, for every year, when your attendance will be monitored. These include(*): • • • •

Enrolment at the start of the year 3 Tutorials throughout the year 3 Register checks during the year 3 Assessment points during the year

If you are an international student you will have further contact points due to the requirements of the UK Borders Agency. If you have any concerns regarding your contact points please contact Student Services: studentservices@arts.ac.uk (*) Please note that contact points may be subject to change.

TIMEKEEPING If you are absent due illness or other related circumstances, it is your responsibility to find out what you missed. Please note: due to the complex and structured delivery of taught sessions, it is not possible to redeliver or repeat sessions. However, you will find project information and session details on Blackboard and in this Unit Handbook. PUNCTUALITY It is important that you arrive to your taught sessions on time and that you bring the appropriate equipment, materials and relevant course work required for the activity planned for each session. Late attendance is not acceptable on this programme of study except with prior consent from your course tutor. Lateness to timetabled sessions disrupts the pre-planned structure and delivery to your class as well as has a direct impact on the progress of your fellow classmates. HEALTH AND SAFETY OR RISK MANAGEMENT At times you will be required to write risk assessments for your college work. This is an important part of planning your work as well as being a requirement for insurance policies, health and safety legislation, and the University of the Arts London health and safety policy. Examples of situations when you should write a risk assessment are: when working with new solvents or substances that we do not already use in college, or when organising a photography shoot on location as opposed to in the studios, an off site exhibition or show. These are just some examples, and there are many other occasions when your tutors or technicians may ask you to write a risk assessment before your work can proceed. All student risk assessments must be signed off by your Course Tutor before you undertake any work. The University’s general risk assessment form and guidance is available to download from the London College of Fashion Health & Safety Blackboard page (Health & Safety @ LCF). All students and staff have access to this page.
