Course content

Postgraduate Illustration reflects the diversity of this subject and the opportunities that exist in areas such as advertising, graphic and web design, publishing, theatre, television and museums.

You’ll 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.

You’ll 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.
