Illustration (Taught) University for the Creative Arts

This course offers students the chance to challenge the boundaries of illustration, both in its practice and its context; contemporary illustration practice has grown to encompass a broad range of ambitions and opportunities for the image makers and storytellers. The programme offers a creative and intellectual environment in which students can rigorously pursue a project of self-directed study, and the systematic production of a body of work on a topic of specific interest within the field of illustration.
