    Right so Brighton vs Falmouth. there supposed to be top tier for illustration and really competitive to get a place at.
    Which ones better and why?
    Is it a good idea to apply for both?
    Anyone do illustration at either of these, if so whats it like?

    Hey =) i'm applying for graphic design courses and i've applied to Hertfordshire for the Graphic design and Illustration degree. I went to the degree show there and personally I thought that there was some seriously good illustration work - all different styles and media =)

    If you want to apply for Brighton, apply for Brighton. I'd personally get rid of Hertfordshire or Middlesex.

    I'm applying for Graphic Design (different but still has elements of illustration depending on the course)
    I'm applying to
    Falmouth
    Brighton
    Chelsea College of Art and Design
    UWIC
    Glamorgan

    Chelsea isn't really a real option, and i might even substitute it for a different choice.
    I'm not sure on those uni's you've listed though sorry, Falmouth is excellent though!

    Saame lol =)
    Apparently they don't expect you to know and they'll give workshops =)

    With your other choices, I actually think its worth applying for Falmouth and Brighton because they're both amazing courses from what i've heard. Also have you looked at Loughborough's course? I've heard that its also really good =)
