About

The B.A. in Illustration (Hons) at University of Gloucestershire prepares students to use visual narrative to communicate, to refine their creative and professional skills with support from our award-winning illustrators. 

Overview

The Illustration (Hons) program offered by University of Gloucestershire is all about drawing stories. During this program you can undertake essential work experience and direct your own projects. Visual storytelling connects many aspects of illustration production, from the graphic novel to children’s books, storyboards and animation.

In your first year you’ll develop skills in life and location drawing, printmaking, specialist techniques and animation. 

In your second and third years you’ll take your work to a professional level through modules such as Sequential Illustration which focuses on using  drawn images to create visual narratives such as comics and graphic novels.  You’ll also begin preparing for industry, developing your expertise in self-publishing and promotion. You’ll be equipped with the creative, technical and enterprise skills you need to progress into the creative industries on graduation.

You'll explore a range of print and production options through practical learning and creative assignments. These include publishing, exhibiting, selling products and attending book fairs.

You’ll gain first-hand experience through a work placement. Students have recently worked with ELCAF (East London Comic & Arts Festival), London Book Fair, BD Angouleme, Cheltenham Illustration Awards and Cheltenham Literature Festival. They’ve also worked with Cheltenham Festivals to produce illustrations for global children's book publisher Walker Books.
