Aims

        Primarily this degree aims to provide an educational and vocational pathway for students to pursue
        the knowledge, skills and attributes identified as those that support creativity and innovation in the
        development of professional practice aligned with the 21st century design and arts environment

        Consultation with relevant stakeholders established that a qualification of this nature is attractive to
        school leavers, current students in related undergraduate programmes, professionals employed in
        associated disciplines and potential employers. Recommendations arising from consultation underpin
        the following articulation of the degree’s purpose and aims.

        The learner group, identified through consultation during the development of this qualification, is
        people interested in pursuing an exciting and challenging study pathway in order to develop the
        personal attributes and the skills required to make a contribution to design and arts related industries.
        Undergraduate students are keen to follow an educational pathway that supports their passion for
        creative expression, advances their career aspirations, adds mana to their curriculum vitae, builds
        their confidence and results in a portfolio of work that they are proud to exhibit or present in a range
        of design and arts related contexts.

        The Whanganui region is known for its creativity. This location exhibits a unique point of difference
        from other regional parts of New Zealand and the world. Strong Iwi connections are an outstanding
        feature of the environment. Therefore, a primary objective of this degree is to ensure that design and
        arts education remains meaningfully local and that local course content addresses tikanga within the
        context of the teaching and learning environment. This objective is guided and monitored by the
        Whanganui School of Design, Iwi Partnership Group (IPG) who support the delivery of Tikanga Maori
        through the identification of appropriate members of Iwi to deliver specialist cultural content.

        The content, structure and delivery of the degree are intended to provide students with the chance
        to work in a similar environment to that of a professional artist or designer while building theoretical
        and contextual knowledge. The degree is constructed around studio-based work where students
        specialise in their own area of interest. The studio work is intended to result in the students
        themselves becoming increasingly inventive, skillful and knowledgeable as they explore the critical
        foundations of design and arts both in a general sense and relative to their chosen specialisation.

        The lecturers are practicing artists, designers, educators and researchers who are able to tap into
        student creativity. Their commitment to student learning, combined with the content and structure
        of the degree, reflects an important aim of the programme which is to promote inspiration, creativity
        and innovation. Importantly, faculty members are committed to offering individualised instruction,
        academic direction and mentoring.

        The development of critical evaluative skills and visual communication abilities are an intended
        outcome of this qualification. Towards this end, the allocation of studio practice hours and relevant
        assessment methods mean that students get many opportunities to discuss and critique their own
        work (and that of others) with their lecturers and peers. Local artists, exhibitors, designers and
        curators complement these processes by taking part in studio-related critique and working with
        students to give an external perspective. The examining and judging mode in the learning environment
        aims to emphasise critical thinking relative to design and arts to strongly encourage work that
        examines and re-imagines context, material form and conceptual approach.

        ‘Hands on making’ experiences are an integral aspect of the degree. These opportunities are provided
        for the students through applied learning sessions in UCOL studios and they are reinforced by an

internship in the third year. In this way, the programme seeks to ensure students develop a keen sense
        of their target market or audience and to consider how they will reach, or even create, that market or
        audience. It is intended to facilitate the exposure of student work to a broader market or audience,
        whether that is to prospective employers, the art and design community, and industry stakeholders
        or to museums, galleries, or other public venues, specific to the particular project.

        Ultimately, the aim of the programme is to broaden the visual, intellectual and aesthetic abilities of
        students in the pursuit of their passion and their careers. The Bachelor of Design and Arts (with a

Programme Assessment
        Grading Systems and Assessment Methodology
        The achievement-based assessment used in this programme provides a system to measure student
        performance against specific knowledge, behaviour and skills-based criteria considered essential for
        design and arts without limiting the range of work produced.

        Assessment may be used for both formative and summative purposes. Students are introduced to the
        assessment methodology during the programme orientation. The Student Handbook for the
        programme contains detailed information regarding assessment requirements.

        Underpinning assessment practices in this programme is the core belief that assessment should not
        only assess the level of achievement but should also provide on-going feedback that informs practice
        and improves performance. Both formative and summative assessment may be used during each
        course.

        Assessment in the Bachelor of Design and Arts, (with a major in Design Media, Visual Arts or
        Textiles/Fashion Design), Level 7 is achievement-based.

        All summative assessment schedules and details will be provided to students within 14 days of
        programme commencement. Formative assessment is used throughout the programme to monitor
        students’ progress and as a basis for feedback to students on their progress.

        The grading scale used in this degree is:

        A (+/-)              Pass
        B (+/-)              Pass
        C (+/ )              Pass
        D                    Fail
        E                    Fail
        F                    Ungraded Fail (no assessment undertaken)
        DNC                  Did not complete both all compulsory assessments for a course and CAR
        (grade) (AEG)        Aegrotat Pass
        CR                   Specified or Unspecified or Cross Credit

        CP                   Conditional Pass

        The following percentages for each grade shall be used:

        A       80 – 84

Te Reo Māori

        UCOL acknowledges the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi and endorses the right of its students to
        use Te Reo Māori in assessments. If you are fluent in Te Reo and wish to be assessed in it, you should
        inform your lecturers of this at the beginning of the programme. See Assessment in Te Reo Māori
        Procedure.

        Schedule of Assessment

        A schedule of assessments will be provided to you in your first class or is available from your Lecturer
        in the form of a course outline.

        Conduct During Assessments

        During your study, you are expected to observe and comply with the Academic Statute and all
        programme regulations. Plagiarism or cheating is not tolerated. Academic dishonesty includes:

               Copying from or inappropriate communicating with another person during an exam or
                assessment
               Possessing any unauthorised material during an exam or assessment
               Submitting any work for assessment that is not your own and whose author has not been
                acknowledged
               Copying another’s work
               Collaborating with others in the preparation of material, except where this is an assessment
                requirement
               Resubmitting work without prior written approval of the lecturer

        Turnitin, or a similar programme, may be used to determine whether you have committed academic
        dishonesty. See Conduct of Examinations and Assessments Procedure.

        Part VIII of the Academic Statute outlines the disciplinary proceedings that apply should you breach
        these rules.

        Extensions

        Extensions for an assessment can only be granted prior to the assessment due date in exceptional
        circumstances. These circumstances may include:

               Sickness – in which case a medical certificate must be presented to the lecturer.
               Bereavement – in which case the lecturer must be informed as soon as possible.
               Extenuating circumstances – these circumstances must be explained to the lecturer and proof
                may be required.

        An application for an extension must be submitted to your lecturer in writing using the Appendix 2 –
        Request for Extension form at the back of this handbook. It can also be made in electronic form via
        email which must include all the information required by the form.

        You will receive notification of the outcome once your lecturer has reached a decision. Extensions will
        be for seven (7) days only unless stated otherwise.

Faculty of Humanities and Business – Student Handbook 2020                                                 Page 22 of 30
MA4379 Bachelor of Design and Arts, Level 7
Where an extension has been granted, and the extension deadline has been met, no penalties will
        apply. Your assessment will be marked and feedback provided in the same way as if the assessment
        was submitted on the original date and time.

        Penalties for Late Submissions

        The following conditions apply to all late submissions of assessments that do not have an approved
        extension:

               All assessment work received after the due date and time, and not subject to a lecturer-
                approved extension, will attract a penalty.
               The penalty for late submission is the deduction of 10% of the mark achieved for each day
                beyond the due date for submission.
               The penalty is applied for a maximum of five (5) days.
               An assessment received after one week from the due date for submission will be returned
                unmarked and a zero (0) grade will be entered.
               No late submissions may be accepted after marked assessments have been returned to
                students, unless it can be determined that there will be no advantage to the student
                submitting the late assessment or disadvantage to students who have submitted the work on
                time.

        Reconsideration of Results

        If you believe that your assessment has been incorrectly assessed, you can apply to your lecturer for
        a reconsideration of result within five (5) days of the return of the assessment. You must apply in
        writing using the Appendix 3 – Request for Reconsideration of Result form at the back of this
        handbook. You may be charged a fee for this process.

        Your result may be unchanged, raised or lowered following reconsideration. The reconsidered result
        will be recorded as the final result. However, you still have the right to appeal this result in accordance
        with the Academic Statute.

        Resubmits and Resits

        An application for a resubmit or resit must be submitted to your lecturer in writing using the Appendix
        4 – Request for Resubmit/Resit form at the back of this handbook. It can also be made in electronic
        form via email which must include all the information required by the form. You may be charged a
        fee for this process.

        Special Passes

        If through illness, accident, bereavement or other exceptional circumstances beyond your control, you
        are unable to complete an assessment or programme, you can apply for a Special Pass.

        The four types of Special Passes are:

               Aegrotat Pass: awarded when you are unable to present work for assessment at the time it is
                due, you are unable to attend a test or examination, or your performance is seriously impaired
                in a test or examination.

Faculty of Humanities and Business – Student Handbook 2020                                                    Page 23 of 30
MA4379 Bachelor of Design and Arts, Level 7
   Conceded Pass: awarded when you have otherwise reached an acceptable standard in the
                programme but have narrowly failed one course, thus affecting your ability to complete the
                qualification.
               Conditional Pass: awarded when you have marginally failed to meet the required academic
                standard but in all other aspects have demonstrated an ability to meet it.
               Restricted Pass: awarded when you have marginally failed to meet the required academic
                standard for the course and, if awarded, does not qualify you to enrol in a subsequent
                course/programme for which a pass in the original course is a pre-requisite.

        If you are interested in requesting a Special Pass, contact your lecturer. Programme curriculum
        regulations and other conditions may apply.

        Academic Appeals

        The academic appeals process is outlined in Part IX of the Academic Statute.

        Inability to Meet Programme Requirements

        Under certain circumstances, an individual study contract may be drawn up to encourage you to meet
        programme requirements. Any failure to meet this contract may result in you being asked to leave
        the programme.

        If you have a serious health problem or other personal circumstances that impact on your ability to
        meet programme requirements, please inform your Lecturer.

        Remember, if you are having difficulties with your programme there are ways UCOL can help you. If
        you do decide to withdraw, you must complete a Change of Details/Circumstances Form. These can
        be obtained from the Information Centre.
