Illustration at Plymouth

We give our students the skills to fully forge their futures in today’s fast evolving art and design industries of communication, entertainment, fashion, manufacturing and information. 

With excellent staff contact and access to workshop and digital facilities, we provide an atmosphere of adventure and enquiry within a traditional studio context. Small and intimate in numbers; yet broad and outward looking in attitude.


  • Award winning tutors including awards such as BAFTA, Emmy and Academy Awards.
  • We don’t have a ‘house-style’ we work with students to develop their own individual creative voice.
  • Dedicated studio spaces open from 07.00 until 00.00, 7 days a week.
  • Fantastic open access printmaking studios and a rare large traditional letterpress studio.
  • We’re very proud of our National Student Survey (NSS) 2017 return showing 94% of students found our staff are good at explaining things, and that more than 91% expressed overall satisfaction with the course.
