  • The emphasis of Unit 2 is a combination of ambitious practical work and a deepening awareness of the context of your work. This is evidenced in the ongoing use of your reflective blog and active involvement in group discussions. 
  • During Unit 3, your focus will be on resolving your work in relation to your study statement with a wider contextual understanding.
