Illustration BA (Hons)

This course is a creative adventure which introduces you to a rigorous exploration of communication through image making and conceptual thinking.

Central to this will be your development and understanding of new skills and processes using traditional and new media, theory and production methods. It offers fantastic opportunities for you to become an innovative illustrator, and learn to build and manage your own professional practice.

Working in a collaborative studio environment you will have opportunities to apply your skills across a range of illustrative applications including, but not limited to, editorial, publishing, packaging, product, print, music design, advertising, character and film.

You will use our excellent links with professional illustrators and creatives, agencies and experts across the creative industries to develop a professional focus to your personal practice through live projects, competition briefs and industrial experience. We will help you generate your own networking, collaboration and exhibition opportunities.

On graduation you will have an awareness of the professional opportunities available to you and the confidence and understanding to make informed decisions about your future. The overall aim of the course is to help individuals to develop into independent, creative thinkers with the ability to deliver critically and visually engaged work within the professional context of contemporary illustration and wider creative industries.
