Our Masters in Illustration is designed to create accomplished visual thinkers whose practice is shaped by current dialogue and innovative thinking in this exciting and progressive discipline.
Through the course, you will be given the opportunity to explore areas of illustration such as children’s books, graphic novels, editorial illustration, illustration for branding and experimental illustration. Whichever route you decide to take with your Masters project, you will be encouraged to take creative risks by pushing your work in new and exciting directions.
MA Illustration is designed to support you in developing an entrepreneurial approach to your practice and we hope that – like many before you – you will use the MA as a springboard for your illustrative career. You will do this by
2.2 honours degree in a related subject.
Applicants with non-standard entry qualifications and / or relevant work experience will be considered on an individual basis.
“I really enjoy the amount of freedom you have with your work. The tutors really encourage you to explore and investigate many different creative mediums, styles, and methods. I think the best part is using the creative facilities such as screen-printing and laser-cutting. The staff are more than willing to take the time to make sure you understand how processes work, and what amazing outcomes you can achieve. Without this help, I doubt I couldn't have done half my project!
“There are lots of creative opportunities in Nottingham and throughout the year, the course staff have really emphasised and encouraged me to go out and discover what design events are taking place around the city. This has helped me broaden my knowledge and insight into what happens in the creative industry.
“I've found the art and design community at NTU and in Nottingham inspiring! So many creative things happen in Nottingham that I wish to live here after I graduate! Most events and talks that I attended in the city were recommended by my tutors and friends. These have been a great way to explore Nottingham.
I wish the course was longer purely because of the amazing experiences I have shared with my friends. Most of my friends have come from far and wide from Egypt, New York and Bulgaria. I have found that the different backgrounds, cultures and creative experiences they have shared with me throughout the year have really influenced my style and thinking.
“I’d also recommend the course for the way it has boosted my sense of initiative. The tutors teach you to be in charge of your own creative work, how it works and flows, and it’s totally up to you when it comes to what you want to say to your audience – they’ve supported me throughout my entire creative learning process.”
