Actuality Media leads global experiential education programs for people who want to tell stories that matter.

Semester 2 2018 Studio ALLOCATIONS

Here are the Times and Places of your studios.

Version 2 Studio Allocations

Version 1 Studio Allocations is the list of studio allocations. We have tried as much as possible to give first preferences but have gone to second and third for some. Obviously, some studios are more preferenced than others.

Figuring out the preferences for all is tricky and time-consuming – please get back to us:

if I haven’t given you any of your preferences – that should be no one

if you aren’t on the list

if you are on the list and not doing a studio (VERY IMPORTANT)

reminder on Timetabling

And how you have been allocated

Semester 2 2018 Studios FAQ + PITCHES + BALLOT

PLEASE read this FAQ before reading PitchBook and submitting choices to Ballot
Most notably point 3 in How Does the Ballot Work:
You will get to complete more than one studio in your degree. Don’t feel that there is only one studio for you. Be open to being surprised about what you might enjoy and benefit learning about. You can’t guess everything that is coming from a course title, description and outline. Value diversity in your degree experience as much as specialisation (just like employers do)

Please Note
We reserve the right not to allocate students to new studios led by staff who have taught them in a studio before.
If a studio is similar to one you’ve done before than it is advisable not to nominate it as a preference. Variety is important for everyone.
