SCCI degrees are built around project and problem-based learning. In addition to coursework and assessments throughout their degree, students work in cross-disciplinary teams to complete major projects in the final-year subjects CCI303 and CCI304. These project teams will either design their own projects or participate in long-running staff-led projects that allow them to investigate and contribute their own specialist skills in a field of their choice.

Upon enrolling in the subjects, students will be given the choice of self-enrolling in or applying for a role in a project of their choice. Under the guidance of academic staff with relevant expertise, they will participate in the project and complete three assessment tasks documenting their contribution to the project. These are:

  • Proposal: a project proposal that details what students know about the area of interest, what they expect to contribute to the project, and what they expect to get out of it;
  • Fieldnotes: an in media res platform agnostic documentation of the project in progress;
  • Reflection: a critique of what worked, what didn’t, and whether the goals of the project as articulated in the proposal were achieved.
