About Illustration & Animation, BA (Hons) - at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

Our BA (Hons) Illustration & Animation course provides an ambitious level of study which will help you to explore and develop a visual voice for a variety of audiences.

You’ll become a highly adaptable and independent maker with critical thinking at your core, adept at exploring relationships between research and studio work.

You’ll be part of a lively and active community, supported by state-of-the-art studios and access to specialist tools and processes, including printmaking, bookmaking, letterpress, moving image, 3D work (including ceramics, spatial practices and three-dimensional design), photography, darkroom processes and industry-standard software.

You’ll develop your visual, oral and written communication skills, whilst engaging with technology and processes relevant to contemporary illustration and animation.

Alongside learning advanced skills in drawing and technology, you will also learn important business skills, including self-promotion, networking and the production process from beginning to end.

We’ll enable you to communicate your ideas using traditional and emerging media, and you’ll learn how to construct narrative and meaning in a variety of contexts.

With close links to our Graphic Design course, you’ll have the chance to work collaboratively with other students and extend your learning to include the relationship between text and image.

Illustration & Animation has a strong focus on social and cultural contexts for practice, shaped by our proximity to the coast, and we can offer you opportunities to be involved with extra-curricular projects run in Europe.

This outward-facing approach is reinforced through strong links with Kent-based businesses, galleries and creative networks, alongside a diverse series of talks by guest lecturers, introducing you to experimental, multidisciplinary and collaborative models of practice.

There will also be multiple opportunities to engage with practitioners, competitions, live briefs and extra-curricular projects, furthering your experience and providing you with access to industry knowledge.

You’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad, designed to broaden your educational experience and to deepen your understanding of cultural diversity.
