ADVANCED COLOUR SCIENCE - 2021/2
Module code: FVP3001
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: further develop theory and practice film and broadcast technology, using both lectures and workshop sessions
The learning and teaching methods include:
- Twelve two-hour lecture per week (including with a revision lecture in the last week)
Three four-hour workshops and / or seminars as needed
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
