So, I've decided to postpone adult hood (signing up for the doll after graduation) by applying for a Master degree course. If I miraculously graduate from Graphic design at Nottingham Trent, I would like to specialise in Illustration - particularly image making. The question is where should I apply?
I'm looking for somewhere that has lots of freedom, is highly independent, but I can still receive help when I request it. Somewhere that focuses on finding your own style, and pushes experimentation and not adamant about narrative illustration work (as I suck at it). Plus lots of facilities to experiment and explore techniques (screen-printing etc). I don't want to apply anywhere that's overcrowded/oversubscribed as I've hated being in a large group full of strangers and fighting to get one-to-one tutorial times. If they have independent study areas for students that would be even better.
I have a weird illustration style. If I wasn't using digital elements, I would describe it more as fine art because it's toxically rich in colours and abstract forms. I want to be on a course that helps push it further, and help learn how to apply it on more commercial platforms and for audiences. Rather than tell me to change it drastically into something else. I want to be on a course where people are used to weird unconventional s styles and how to approach it.

After reading your thoughts on how you'd prefer the MA course to be structured, I'd say an art school would be your best option.
Have you tried looking at the websites of GSA, ECA, UCA or perhaps Slade?
