Our Illustration Animation BA course combines two subjects to give you creative freedom for visual thinking, expression and communication. Illustration has expanded from the traditional printed page to explore many forms of visual media including digital interaction and virtual reality, objects, spaces and environments. Built around drawing, the course is carefully structured to develop your individual voice, applying content to image communication to reach an audience. We encourage learning through making and you'll have access to all our workshops, from etching, ceramics to digital fabric printing, enabling you to test and prototype. Group and individual assignments and presentations develop the range of skills essential to contemporary practice in all forms of applied image making. Projects with industry will test and shape your understanding in real world situations. Staff practitioners and alumni networks offer insight and contacts with international creative practice, including study visits and placements. We were ranked at number eight in the UK (out of 74) for design and crafts in the Guardian University League Tables 2018. The course has an excellent reputation for producing graduates who go on to be top practitioners in illustration and animation, as well as design direction and a broad range of creative careers.
