Friday 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Pre-requisite: Introductory Food Science modules.
All food and food products intended for the consumer are subject to legal control. Over the years there has been a considerable amount of legislation in the form of Acts of Parliament and Regulations to ensure that food is safe, produced hygienically, is clearly described by label information and gives enough information to enable consumers to make informed choices. Currently there are proposals to improve the information given on labels to give consumers information about healthy eating™. Considerable efforts have been made to ensure that food legislation is consistent across the European Union. This has been achieved by requiring all Member States to adopt European regulations or to adopt specific Directives. Legislation provides an environment of ˜official control which is enforced by local authorities. Besides official control, food producers, processors, and caterers have developed a wide range of codes of practice and guidelines to ensure food is produced, distributed and sold to the highest standards of quality. These codes and guidelines reflect Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) developed over many years and describe requirements for chemical composition, personal hygiene, machinery, temperature control and packaging. The requirements for food control extend beyond the factory and the industrial kitchen to the retailers and ensure that food is produced to high standards of quality and safety throughout the food chain. Sustainability in relation to food production and supply has a significant impact on the Food Industry and can be used to demonstrate the multi-facet of food control.

Thursday 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Pre-requisite: Safe Food Preparation and Food Microbiology, or reasonable equivalent
This module applies the principles of food safety, food control and food preservation to the development of a new food product. Food product development is essential to maintaining competitive advantage in the modern food and drink industry. Students will work in small groups to interpret a design brief and develop a new food product. To be successful a new product has to look good and taste good, then consumers will return to buy more. The food manufacturer must ensure that the product can be made consistently and meet all legal and supplier specifications. Good practice, accurate specifications and meeting all legal requirements in terms of due diligence are essential for product design and delivery of outcomes for the development process. This Module takes a practical, technological approach to food product development and deliberately encourages students to experience the constraints and conflicts arising from team work in the design, prototype and pilot manufacturing process.

Friday 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Pre-requisite: Advanced Psychology courses
This module is designed primarily for students who wish to go on to counselling psychology and psychotherapy postgraduate courses (as distinct from Clinical Psychology and other related professions) following their degree. Each week will include both a theoretical component and a practical component where students will be able to try out various approaches in role-plays and triad work. Triad work is a standard counselling training practice where students take the role of counsellor, client and observer and try out techniques in this triad. Students are encouraged to talk about general aspects of life or minor problems rather than anything they are likely to find distressing and are encouraged only to disclose information that they are comfortable sharing.
The theoretical component of the module introduces students to key theoretical approaches in counselling psychology and psychotherapy (focusing on humanist/existential and cognitive behavioural) as well as covering various types of therapy (one-to-one, group therapy, brief therapy and relationship work). There is a critical emphasis throughout the course considering issues of power, ethics, difference, and research on therapeutic effectiveness and processes. The material covered on this course will be similar to that in many foundation courses in counselling psychology and psychotherapy. Therefore it is important that students taking the course attend every week so that they, and their colleagues, get the full benefit. Students are also encouraged to engage in an appropriate placement or voluntary work during the year they are taking this module so that they can reflect on this experience during their course and in the assessment.

This module will cover the skills necessary for you to be able to achieve good, clean sound for film. This module provides an overview of these skills which you will then be able to build upon and develop. We will be looking at the whole process involved in producing sound for film: planning and pre-production, location sound and post-production. It is relatively easy to render high quality HD images with even the simplest cameras it is more challenging to record and mix high quality sound. This module is designed to get you working confidently with music and sound, in order to achieve the best possible marrying of picture and to make most of the intrinsic added value of the good use of sound. Music and sound design for film demands creative and technical planning for good recording, mixing and final sweetening or 'fairy-dust' of the soundtrack. Throughout the semester, you will have the opportunity to build on the technical and analytical skills acquired at Level 4, through the production of comprehensive sound and music track design for a film sequence. You are required to work with both source and original sound and music, critically investigating how mood and meaning is constructed through the dialogue between the image and sound tracks.

The goal of this module is to achieve recording of the highest quality location sound to best facilitate students’ filmmaking ambitions. Sound is the one element that will most expose any shortcomings in your film production standards, and getting to grips with the basics here will go a long way towards improving the quality of your films. A big part of learning to record great sound is learning to listen, which in turn requires an understanding of the characteristics of different kinds of sound and the behaviour of sound in different environments. Such considerations as these are central to the module, while instruction on the most common filmmaking situations and the most common problems encountered when recording sound will give you a firm grounding in sound recording techniques and technologies. You can pursue an interest in sound further by enrolling on optional modules in sound editing and sound design in your second year

The received opinion of film history is that out of an initial period of incredible diversity of purpose and form arose a 'dominant' mode of narrative film which we still see, more or less intact, today. This module will chart this journey in the film's development, from the late 19th Century to contemporary digital cinema, exposing the diversity and testing some of the central assumptions of text-book film history. The module looks at the historical development of cinema and the film industry from its outset through to the Post World War II era up until todays digital cinema manifestations. The social and cultural significance of cinema is examined at key points, illustrating how a knowledge of history can deepen our understanding of film texts and contribute to a historiography of the moving image.

The VFX industry module is concerned with industry and professional practice and the module will provide students with a broad contextual overview of the Creative Industries and the firms that operate VFX facilities, as well as individuals working within these organisations. Having a comprehensive view of how the industry operates, its current and future trajectory, knowledge of the key players and a student’s place within the VFX industry is essential in helping to develop a strategic and successful on-going career. Secondly the module introduces students to working practices. It’s increasingly the case that creatives work freelance, going from firm to firm on contracts that may run for many months, therefore these aspects are also considered.
Looking at everyday professional practice in connection with the VFX industry in more detail, graduates will be expected not only to have a high level of operational skills but to also be able to trouble shoot and pitch ideas to their team or production manager/VFX Supervisor. How projects are costed and managed is also of importance, as is having an understanding of how long each individual job or task will take. Students need to understand the real costs associated with each VFX shot and find the most appropriate, cost and time efficient way of producing the end result, without loss of quality, and understanding that any one element may need to be changed at any time. The module also augments the VFX Fundamentals unit by extending students’ knowledge by giving additional input around personnel involved in the VFX pipeline.
