Course summary

Images – both moving and still – provide visual storytelling everywhere we look, from feature films to adverts, children’s books and smartphone apps. Our BA (Hons) Illustration & Animation course at UCA Canterbury will provide you with the tools and crucially, the flexibility, to become a skilled visual storyteller for a wide range of audiences.You’ll become a highly adaptable and independent maker with critical thinking at your core, able to explore relationships between research and studio work, and become a member of a lively and active community as we are closely linked to our BA (Hons) Graphic Design course. The course itself has a strong focus on social and cultural contexts for practice, and your learning will be supported by state-of-the-art studios and access to specialist tools and processes, including printmaking, bookmaking, letterpress, animation and moving image, 3D work (including ceramics, spatial practices and three-dimensional design), photography, darkroom processes and industry-standard software. You will also have excellent opportunities to engage with practitioners, our many industry links, competitions, live briefs and extra-curricular projects, furthering your experience and providing you with access to industry knowledge. There are also opportunities to be involved with extra-curricular projects run in continental Europe. You’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad, designed to broaden your educational experience and to deepen your understanding of cultural diversity.Graduates have gone on to enjoy careers in digital media, film making, set and spatial design and website design, to name a few.Similar courses we offer:Animation (3 & 4 Year) - UCA FarnhamComputer Animation Arts - UCA RochesterIllustration (3 & 4 Year) - UCA Farnham
