Which university for BA Illustration in London?

Hello there!

I need some advice on which university is best for studying a BA Illustration degree.
I’m an international student, and I’ve been accepted at, Kingston University, University of Westminster, Middlesex University and University of West London.

I’d love to attend a university with experienced and helpful lecturers and course leaders, good student support, and one which will well equip me for entering the creative industry.

I’m also looking for any type of bursary or scholarship available for international students for these courses. Or any advice on bursaries for international students.

Any advice is really appreciated!!
Thank you x!

Hi there @whimsii ,congratulations on being accepted to Kingston University! I am currently a 2nd year BA Fashion student studying at Kingston School of Art! The greatest highlight about Kingston for me would be their open access making facilities. No matter what course you are from, any student from any course can access the various workshops in Kingston (eg. metal, wood, ceramics, print making...)

Regarding your question on scholarship and bursaries, click HERE to find out more about the various scholarships you might be eligible for as an international student! Wishing you all the best in your decision and studies ahead! Please do let me know if you have any other questions about life in Kingston and I will try my best to answer them. :smile:

Thank you so much!! This is super helpful info!
All four options will give you what you want. All four are fine. However, Kingston is the only one which is selective who it admits, so the average quality of your classmates will be higher. However, you might find that student support is better on the other courses.

International students paying high fees are keeping the majority of UK Universities afloat in terms of finances, so you'll be extremely lucky to find any bursaries.
