Course summary

Perhaps you already have your own style of illustration and want to explore it further. Or you’re looking to get a good grounding in the possibilities available. We take a wide-ranging approach, letting you experiment and focus on your individual creativity. You’ll have the chance to develop your unique style across a wide range of media, and get to know more about the current trends and practices in illustration. We like to keep the course as open as possible, to help you find your own areas of interest. * In your first year you’ll have the chance to experiment with a range of materials and concepts, which will enable you to develop your practical skills and your individual strengths. * On to second year you can expand on what you’ve learnt, and we’ll also take a look at what’s going on in the wider field of illustration. From industry and cultural contexts through to the latest professional practice, we’ll aim to get you thinking about what steps you might take in your career. * We'll also give you the chance to work on live projects, and briefs set by our contacts in the industry. * You'll have the opportunity to go on a placement year after the second year if that takes your fancy, providing real-world experience of what it’s like to work in a range of illustrative practices, developing your professional skills. * In your final year, we’ll give you the chance to consolidate what you’ve learnt and build up your own portfolio. We know what employers are looking for, so if you’re after a good start in your career we could help you fine tune your portfolio to a professional standard. During your time here there will be plenty of chances to hear talks from guest speakers and professionals from the world of illustration and art. We are college members of the Association of Illustrators, and our industry links could get you involved in live projects, competitions, awards and exhibitions. And we’ll arrange field trips to events and galleries too. The course is part of a suite of three that includes Contemporary Art BA(Hons) and Contemporary Art and Illustration BA(Hons). Whichever one you enrol on, you can switch to any of the other two courses while you’re here with the agreement of your tutor. We really are truly flexible, as we 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. Professional links and accreditation: During this course you can benefit from the opportunity to gain the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) (https://www.adobe.com/uk/) accreditation in addition to your degree, at no extra cost. This is a globally recognised accreditation awarded by one of the leading software package providers to the creative industries, so could be valuable in your professional career. This accreditation is attractive to a number of employers and so it could give you a competitive edge in the job market. To be awarded the ACA accreditation, you’ll need to pass an online test. Additional Costs: A range of basic materials (including for example pens, pencils, brushes, charcoal, canvas and paper) are provided for all students. However, if you choose to work with more specialist materials, you will need to provide these yourself. This could be anything from oil paints to building materials, software, DVDs, steel, etc and depends on your choice of illustration practice. The estimated cost of specialist materials is £60 (Year 1), £100 (Year 2) and £200 (Year 3).
