How It Works
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.
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.
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.
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.
Some assignments on the courses will require you to deliver presentations either individually or as part of a group, which will either be presented live or as a pre-recorded video file. These presentations will be booked in advance to ensure your location is taken into account and, where this is too difficult to organise, the pre-recorded option is available.
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 an 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.
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.
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.
If you would like to attend then you are more than welcome to, you can even try your hand at conducting your music yourself.
I signed up with ThinkSpace because of the flexibility that they offered... It meant that I could base the work at ThinkSpace around my other commitments.
The work at ThinkSpace was largely practical which I really enjoyed.
