The specialist BA (Hons) Illustration course is highly demanding and focuses on the role of applied illustration in the contemporary creative industries and broader visual culture. The course is a competitive choice for students who want to commit to an innovative programme of studio based study.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a practicing illustrator to join this dynamic course.
