Illustration & Animation is a practice-based course with creative, critical, reflective and technical skills developed in the studio and enhanced by pertinent academic writing. Teaching is informed by staff research, practice and expertise. Students are actively encouraged to be imaginative, ambitious and resourceful to face the challenges of an unpredictable, demanding, globally-competitive and technologically-driven world.

Sound pedagogic practice mixed with imaginative delivery and assessment methods will enable students to produce personal and expressive portfolios that demonstrate creative agility and technical prowess. Students will be helped to develop the necessary creativity, critical reflection, questioning, understanding, theoretical underpinning and practical skills to pursue successful professional careers in both home and international contexts.

Students are taught the shared values and skills that underpin illustration and animation practice whilst having the opportunity to develop a portfolio that focuses on a specific area of creative practice from within the spectrum of illustration and animation.

The course is distinguished by an emphasis on story-telling, character-creation and the development of a professional ethos. Students are supported by access to industry-standard software, workshops and studio environments. Typical graduate portfolios might include complete books, comics, animations and films in a range of technologies and media from a mix of in-house assignments, self-initiated tasks, national / international competition opportunities, and live project briefs.
