BA (Hons)Illustration

Course Overview

Illustration is a way of seeing and understanding the world. Through a variety of techniques, traditional and digital, you’ll discover how to connect with different audiences.

Our Illustration graduates have gone on to work with publishers, animators, creative agencies or digital businesses – and many go on to enjoy success as independent illustrators.

There are no rules in illustration. On this course you’ll explore the excitement of blurring boundaries between contemporary disciplines. You’ll challenge and interrogate the way we think about imagery and style.

Explore creativity and work on live briefs

In our creative studio environment, you’ll learn to experiment, test and develop your work. You can explore drawing, painting and printmaking, as well as photographic, digital, video and interactive media. As part of your work experience you’ll have the chance to work on ‘live’ project briefs for businesses.

You’ll be able to enter competitions, exhibit in London shows, and work closely with other students to form illustration collectives. Our tutors will help you develop into a confident individual with the skills and ideas needed to make a success of your career within the creative industries.
