Course summary

About the course

Do you enjoy expressing yourself creatively? Are you an artist and creative thinker? We’ll offer you the chance to explore different media in a range of workshops including painting, drawing, image-making, sculpture, installation, moving-image, digital processes, and photography. This will allow you to build up your artistic skills so you can select the approaches that are right for you.

Why study Contemporary Art and Illustration?

  • Work in a lively and dynamic studio environment where you’ll be encouraged to develop your creative and conceptual thinking. On your way, you’ll be able to call on the support of our widely experienced specialist tutors and technicians.
  • Engage with a range of inspiring guest speakers and have live sessions from professionals within your chosen field. Use our links with industry and professional practitioners to gain the opportunity to take part in live projects, national competitions, awards and exhibitions.
  • Learn to present, evaluate, curate and interpret contemporary art and illustration.

The course is part of a suite of three courses that also includes Contemporary Art BA(Hons) and Illustration BA(Hons). We’re truly flexible and want you to develop your own path. You only have to apply for one course from the suite, but you could go off in any direction once you get here.

Your career

Following the course you may opt for further study, or could consider a career as an artist, curator, or a role in community arts, the media or design for example. Our graduates have won awards and prizes such as the Northern Graduates Prize, The Alternative Turner Prize, and New Sensations (a joint venture between the Saatchi Gallery and Channel 4). They've also gone on to work for companies such as East Street Arts, Leicestershire Craft Centre, Pyramid of Arts and Studio 116 Design.
