Youll be encouraged to explore diverse possibilities within the subject, with support from highly accomplished and respected staff, all of whom have understanding and expertise in the art of illustration.
Facilities include excellent studio space and extensive printmaking resources, and a weekly Life Drawing class. You will also have the chance to study bookbinding, book arts, digital technologies and web publishing. The programme emphasises collaboration with writers, designers and publishers and many of our postgraduates have seen their work published.
Youll take part in national and international competitions and possibly join the ranks of our students who have exhibited and won prizes in prestigious events, such as the V&A Student Illustration Awards, Penguin Book Awards, 3x3 and Image Nation.
The one-year MA and two-year MFA programmes offer an excellent opportunity for independent, focused study.
MA students produce a body of practical and written work on an agreed topic.
MFA students produce an additional extended range of work, appropriate to the length of the course.
Both years are project-led. Your study will combine practical studio work with theoretical and written studies, including professional practice elements to prepare you for employment in the industry, and a lecture/seminar series that will examine the wider context of your studies.
