How It Works

Studying at ThinkSpace Education is not all that dissimilar to studying at a traditional brick-and-mortar university. Here you can learn about the ways we teach our programmes and ensure you feel a part of the community.

If you are accepted onto one of our postgraduate degree programmes, you will be a registered student of ThinkSpace Education. Because of our partnership with the University of Chichester, you will also be registered with them. This will give you access to a Chichester University academic email account and access to use the University’s library services. Please note that you would need to visit the campus physically in order to use their library.

Course Content

At most universities, you will have weekly lectures with your subject tutor to learn about the module contents. At ThinkSpace Education you will have the whole module unlocked from the beginning, allowing you to move through the course text at your own pace. The module will still run for a set period of time, at the end of which you will submit your graded assignment, but the information can be digested at a pace and time that suits you.

In addition to the Course Reader text available, there are also hours and hours of video tutorials with industry professionals to watch and learn from. In these videos, you will be taught the key creative and technical skills required to tackle the assignments for each module, as well as unique industry insights that will allow you to navigate the professional business world.

Webinars

In addition to the course text and videos, we schedule regular live webinar sessions with guest lecturers and staff tutors. These webinars take many forms, interactive workshops, seminars, lectures, and occasionally drop-in support sessions if you have questions or issues for the ThinkSpace Education team. We book webinars that are relevant to each course’s curriculum, but don’t feel you can’t turn up to an orchestration lecture if you’re on a game sound design course – all are welcome!

Additionally, we have an extensive back catalogue of past webinars that we have recorded over the years, so you can work through the many hundreds of hours of content completely at your leisure.

Assignments & Grading

There are two types of assignment: Formative and Summative. Most modules have two formative assignments, which are primarily used to review your progress during the module and the grades for which do not count towards your final grade. The summative is the assignment designed to assess your accumulated knowledge and experience throughout the module, the grade for which does count towards your overall grade calculation.

The assignment briefs are delivered digitally, and your submissions will be uploaded through our online assignment uploader. The deadline for all assignments is always 23:59 PM on the day as it appears in your student calendar, although we always recommend uploading with plenty of time for obvious reasons.

We aim to turnaround formative feedback within two weeks and summative feedback within one month. Your tutors will provide extensive written or audio feedback that not only tells you what you did well or could have improved, but also HOW you could improve and why it’s important in and industry context. The feedback and grades you get will not only reflect your academic performance but also how well your work would do with the professional industry, as the people giving you this feedback know all too well.

Support & Community

We have a dedicated support team ready to answer you questions about any aspect of your degree or anything you might need assistance with. You can contact us via email, telephone or using our online support ticket system, which is the most direct and convenient method of getting in touch.

ThinkSpace Education has a fantastically friendly, knowledgeable and diverse student body. We encourage all students to join our Postgraduate Degree Facebook page, where you can share ideas and news with each other, without any interference or management from the ThinkSpace staff. Students nominate a representative that can liaise with the ThinkSpace Education staff on matters concerning the community as a whole, and we work together to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and stress-free time studying.

Graduation & Registration

Our graduation ceremony takes place at the University of Chichester towards the end of the year, usually in October or November (exact dates are released closer to the confirmed date). You’ll be invited to attend and be publicly commended for your hard work and effort (cap, gown and all!). If you are unable to be present for the ceremony then your certificate will be posted directly to you.

If you are accepted onto one of our postgraduate degree programmes, you will be a registered student of ThinkSpace Education. Because of our partnership with the University of Chichester, you will also be registered with them, at least notionally. This will give you access to a Chichester University academic email account and access to use the University’s library services. Please note that you would need to visit the campus physically in order to use their library.

Orchestral Session

Some of the degrees that we offer have included an orchestration session slot of a professional orchestra. The sessions typically take place in Prague with the City of Prague Symphony Orchestra, however the specific location and orchestra may differ depending on various circumstances.

If you would like to attend then you are more than welcome to, you can even try your hand at conducting your music yourself.
