Within both courses, project briefs help you develop the creative and technical skills you need for industry, while also being open enough to allow you the freedom to steer your work to suit your interests. This way, you get the most out of your time with us – tailoring your degree, exploring your career options and developing a personal approach to your creative process.
Employability is at the heart of our Graphic Design (Graphic Illustration) course from University of Suffolk. Alongside developing a broad range of practical skills, you learn how to be a creative and critical thinker, developing transferable skills along the way.
We encourage work placements for all of our students and are happy to support you in approaching design studios. Thanks to our links with professionals in the industry, we strive to provide you with the knowledge and networking opportunities to prepare you for employment with the likes of our Life After Lectures – a series of talks by designers, illustrators and creative directors about progressing from education to the workplace.
We are proud that many of our graduates find jobs with respected graphic design studios in Suffolk such as Firebrand Creative, Itineris, Jacob Bailey, Kingsland Linassi and Spring Agency; while others have gone on to work at national organisations including Government Digital Services, FutureGov, JellyFish, M-is and Saatchi & Saatchi.
If you want to become a freelance illustrator, the degree also equips you with the crucial skills to be successful in self-employment or to set up your own studio. Alternatively, you can progress to an illustration related Masters degree or initial teacher training.
