Proposal and UAL student guidelines

Proposal

In producing the project proposal, and in preparing for the project realisation you should familiarise
yourself with Unit 13 of the qualification.

In particular you should understand the assessment and grading criteria which will be used to
determine standards of achievement. (These can be found in the handout given, on THCVibe or at
http://www.arts.ac.uk/media/arts/about-ual/ual-awarding-body/documents/specs-statements-and-
letters/cmpt/l3-cmpt/Digital_L3-Creative-Media-specification-v7.pdf)

Unit 13 requires you to produce a project proposal of about 500 words, excluding the project action
plan and bibliography. Project proposals should not be so succinct that they do not address the
requirements listed below, nor should they be excessively long and unfocused.

Your project proposal should be sufficiently challenging to ensure you have the best possible chance
of meeting the grading criteria.

Your project proposal should include

 Centre name and number (The Henley College and 62441)


 Student name and number
 Project proposal title and date
 Main area of activity/pathway, (e.g. lm, TV, games design, app design).

The project proposal must be word processed and presented under the headings listed here.
