The programs are annual, cohort-based and teaching follows a unit system of ten, fifteen or twenty weeks. All components of each program are taught in English. Each program has a dedicated faculty for studio teaching; however, the cultural studies faculty provides the teaching on art history and cultural studies units for all programs. Studio space is organized according to each program’s needs, whilst workshops and computer labs are open to all students (as scheduled or by prior arrangement). Technical support staff maintain workshop equipment, facilitate student project work and ensure health and safety regulations are met. Each program has a coordinator that reports to the Dean and oversees the timetabling, administrative work and structures curriculum development plans with the rest of the faculty team.
