Program Overview

We are a community of illustrators that tell stories through images. We emphasize curiosity and innovation in our approach to illustration, and we embrace mistakes as part of our process.

  • Experimentation

 Exploration and experimentation are at the core of our practice. As artists we ask why, and use materials and images to find the answers.

  • Socially engaged practice

We engage in a critical and socially engaged understanding of the world around us so that our illustrators can embark on an inclusive, sustainable and self-aware artistic practice.


  • Research

We emphasize practice-based research as well as written critical analysis, exploring personal objectives and extending our understanding of how illustration can make positive changes both locally and globally.


  • Travel

Travel expands our horizons and helps us grow. We attend Thought Bubble Comics Festival (UK), Angouleme BD (France), Bristol Artist’s Book Event (UK), and also visit museums in London, Oxford & Birmingham.

  • Industry

We bring our practice to industry! Third year students go to London to meet art directors and agents before graduation, and we have a full slate of visiting artists that come to us, both virtually and in person. Past visiting artists and critics include Anh Cao (animation), Matthew Dooley (comics), Emily Dumas (US), Handsome Frank (agency), Adam Jeffcoat (Studio NX), Self Made Hero publishing, Laurie Stansfield (children’s), Nicholas Stevenson (alum).

The first year is an open approach to learning that will allow you to find what drives your practice. The second year explores audience, the wider world, and your place in it as an artist. In the third year students develop practice-based research methods and bring to life an independent project for the degree show.

Our modern design facilities include printmaking studios, an Apple Mac suite, Risograph machine, letterpress workshop and book-binding equipment. We encourage students to explore illustration through all kinds of media and you can also learn on our laser cutters, 3D printers, and have access to our woodshop and ceramics studio.
