I was wondering if anyone knew which of these universities was better for Illustration? I love the vibe of PCA but at PU I heard you go on more exchanges and trips and I think this would help me build industry links better. I'm not sure...help?

I studied Illustration at Plymouth College of Art and had a great experience. My tutors were amazing and incredibly inspiring, all practicing illustrators within their own right.
PCA is an independent art school, so there’s a great creative community and a huge range of facilities to use across the college. There are lots of opportunities to build industry contacts – with live briefs, international competitions, visiting lecturers and work experience opportunities. My tutors were all from the illustration industry, so I found their first-hand knowledge really beneficial.
I now work as a freelance illustrator and co-run my own creative business in Plymouth. I still get recommended for Illustration jobs through PCA even now, 3 years after graduating! It was a great experience and I hope you have the best time studying Illustration in Plymouth!
