    Course Content

    This course is based around a wide range of approaches to the development of your own work in relation to both illustration and animation.

    Drawing is a key element that will underpin your studies but you will also study a range of approaches to both disciplines so that you can begin to develop your own signature style.

    Your course will be primarily based on the development of your studio practice but you will also have lectures, seminars and workshops.

    A range of assessment methods will be used in conjunction with clearly defined coursework tasks. Your work will be assessed by subject specialists who, after grading the submission, will be available to give you feedback.

    Where appropriate you are encouraged to work with writers or experts in related disciplines. You will credit all participants and must be able to demonstrate your particular contribution to any external collaborative project.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
