Unlike most universities, we understand that Illustration is part of the wider graphic design profession. Rather than teach it in isolation, our unique course will provide you with a full education as an illustrator, while also ensuring you have the necessary graphic design skills so that you can thrive in both areas, opening your employment options.

Building an online portfolio, you will explore a variety of visual mediums from life drawing and painting to animation and digital media. We teach illustration from a number of contexts to help you find your specialist area. Our small year groups (around 20 students) allow for individual support and feedback, and working from a huge, modern and multi-functioning studio space, you will be able to interact with students from all years to help share ideas and inspire each other to greatness.

If you are visually inquisitive, motivated and ready for the challenge of one of the most exciting and fastest changing fields in the creative industries, then this is the course for you.
