Course Description

This programme is firmly rooted in the tradition of drawing and the individuality this discipline instils.

The course will provide you with the opportunity to combine illustration with animation. Through a variety of challenges, you will develop strategies and skills to enable you to successfully cope with a range of visual communication problems and contexts. Ambitions are realised through a research-informed questioning of practice that embraces the potential outcomes of page or screen.

Graduates have gone on to postgraduate study in many national institutions including the Royal College of Art, the National Film School and Manchester Metropolitan University. Graduates have also become freelance illustrators, animators, filmmakers, designers, pre-production artists, storyboard artists, and teachers.

Course Content

Embracing the handmade and the digital, you have access to life drawing, book binding, etching, screen-printing, typesetting, workshops in sound and edit, Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, After Effects and Dragonframe.

Design in context and professional practice are introduced through national competitions and industry led 'live' briefs.

Year 1

In Year 1 you will be introduced to the three main building blocks of the course: drawing, printmaking and animation. You will develop your skills through a series of projects, introducing you to possible strategies for solving visual problems and applications which explore context. As the course unfolds, you will start to identify a framework for your own practice.

Year 2

In Year 2 you will begin to experiment more fully with your own practice and will be introduced to real life situations that you would encounter in professional practice. For example, you will work with text and narrative, make books, experiment with sound and movement and develop design concepts.

Year 3

In Year 3 you will work more independently and focus on your particular strengths, deciding which contexts are most suitable for your visual language. We aim to give you the courage to be yourself and the understanding of how and where you may contribute to the wider world of visual communication and practice.
