Hey guys!

Okay so I'm having a bit of a **** time trying to figure out where to apply for an MA Illustration Course. I liked what I saw from what ual has to offer, but I keep reading these random people on the internet simply hating on the course and not liking CCA at all. Is it good or bad or WHAT UGH

Could someone who's studied a similar course help me choose colleges to apply to in the UK? I'm really a bit lost.

PS: I'm an International student. (I'm Indian!)

Hey there!

Whilst I can’t answer your questions about what it is like to study MA Illustration at UAL, I can tell you about our MA Illustration course here at Plymouth College of Art.

We are situated in the heart of Plymouth, a beautiful and friendly city that I think offers the best of a coastal seaside town with the benefits of a city lifestyle. There is plenty of art and music culture to experience in the city, and I have found lots to be inspired by.

The MA Illustration course here has access to studio and workshops spaces across the college, as well as a dedicated Illustration studio. The course offers a contemporary look into Illustration, encouraging individual style and investigating the role of illustration in contemporary society.

If you would like to know more, please feel free to check out the course on our website; https://www.plymouthart.ac.uk/courses/ma-illustration/

Hope this helps, do let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Dear sir/madame,
Regarding your MA illustration program, Would you be interested in candidates from different academic backgrounds?I currently have a BSc hons 2:1 degree in engineering and a certificate of higher education in Computer Game Art and Animation. Also I have an illustration portfolio with both self commissioned projects and client work, as I have been trained in illustration from an independent school). So my question is, are the entry requirements for the course strict on the candidate having a degree specifically in illustration , or are they flexible for people that can possibly demonstrate evidence of work suitable for a graduate study on the subject, despite a different background ?
Thank you in advance
Most universities will happily consider applications from people who have come to illustration by a different route.

Just apply and explain your situation and background in your personal statement.

Hey,

I can fully appreciate how you're feeling, choosing a university can certainly feel very daunting when you're faced with lots of options.

As a representative of the University of Sunderland, I can wholeheartedly recommend our Design MA, a masters that is built around your personal design interests and aspirations. You can choose study in a number of areas including illustration, and our specialist tutors will work with you as you create a portfolio of creative designs that will excite and impress potential employers.

By the end of the course, you will have completed a major project that has evolved from your practice and research and the project will be supported by a critical evaluation report!

The course offers excellent engagement with industry, locally, nationally and internationally and has several academic partners overseas including Hong Kong, Malaysia and the US. They regularly welcome guest speakers from every corner of the design world too, such as Jill Calder, Fig Taylor and Bruce McLean from the Association of Illustrators.

You won't have to worry about job prospects after graduating, our graduates have forged careers all over the globe in graphic design, editorial, infographics, motion graphics, advertising, web, packaging, and interactive design! Graduates have gone on to work in Ordinance Survey, MTV, SEGA, and the creative industries of publishing, design consultancies, and advertising design.

As a place to live, Sunderland has the perfect combination of city and seaside living and is a friendly, diverse and affordable place for you to both live and study. It's the second most affordable city in the UK, according to a 2018 ‘Graduate salaries in the UK’ survey conducted by Prospects Luminate and one of the safest - in 2018 we were ranked 7th in the ‘The UK’s safest places to live’ survey by Compare the Market.

You can find out more information here https://www.sunderland.ac.uk/study/d...aduate-design/ or feel free to let me know if you have any questions

I've been for a look around sunderland who do a MA in design. It looks like a great course, where you could decide to use your time to look into any aspect of design including illustration
