OTHER ACTIVITIES
 
INTERVIEWS
Feedback discussions with students to define the additional activities to be undertaken during the warm-up and preparation period. Students will be assigned specific tasks based on the discussions to ensure basic skills are common across the group, in preparation for the Master's course vocational activities.
In particular, students' IT background and skills will be assessed to establish whether further training or introduction to particular software is required in order to participate in subsequent activities (eg. Photoshop, Illustrator, etc).
