Engaging with Rise
Rise offers a mix of flexible opportunities throughout the year, together with more focused activity after the exam period in May (our ‘Third Term’). You’ll earn Rise Points for completing a portfolio;
- Online Intensives – flexible, short courses which are completely entirely at your own pace.
- Project Challenges – problems posed by advocates from the city, to which respond independently.
- Events – one off opportunities to attend workshops or masterclasses
- Activities – more intensive opportunities to learn a language, skill or even attend a placement or international mobility!
Claiming Credits and Recognition
Once you’ve earned 300 Rise Points, you can claim a recognition on your transcript for your efforts. By writing a reflective account about your experience, you can even claim additional credit which can count towards your classification*.
A New Approach
The role and the value of a University education is changing. This means the way we teach and learn is changing too. Today, experience is as important as knowledge; collaboration as revision; practical experience as lectures. And we recognise that the right way to learn and develop is different for each and every student.
Rise is a revolutionary approach to education that provides the ability to give every student a bespoke element to their degree. One that allows students to get more out of their time with us, by committing to putting a little more in. And that’s more relevant to their individual needs and wants, and more valuable to potential employers and industry.
It’s a flexible and collaborative way of learning, delivered both on and off campus. It offers extra credits and practical experience, but also an opportunity for reflection, exploration, and to build confidence and character.
Rise is your time and place to grow, develop, and shine.
