To qualify for a Masters level award it is necessary for all students to undertake a major piece of independent study. The study should build upon the knowledge and skills that the student has progressively developed throughout the programme and arrive at the production of original work in the realm of Digital Media Practice. In order to allow the widest possible scope to the professional and developmental interests of individual students, this major study may take the form of either: a design project, comprising a research report, all necessary drawings and specifications and, where appropriate, a model or prototype of the completed design
 OR: a substantial research study presented as a dissertation, to include amongst its findings evidence of visual exploration, illustrated recommendations and the development of new approaches or ideas in relation to an area of Digital Media Practice.
