Program description

Illustration and Animation BA (Top-up) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

This is a top-up version of our Illustration and Animation BA (Hons) degree. A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree course and is for those who have a foundation degree, Higher National Diploma or equivalent qualification, or those wishing to study the final year of their degree in London.

On this degree, you'll learn image-making and visual storytelling skills, specifically looking at children’s books, graphic novels and app design.

This course is industry-focused. It will help you develop your creativity and hone the skills you'll need to be a professional illustrator and animator.

You'll study digital platforms as well as more traditional forms of illustration. The course embraces ongoing developments in illustration and animation. We'll explore how modern illustration is practiced and how techniques are no longer confined to the page but inhabit a dynamic, three-dimensional digital world.

You’ll study in The Cass’s unique studio system in East London and make use of an unrivalled range of creative facilities to make your work — including photographic studios, printmaking, ceramics and woodworking studios, and technology including 3D printing, risograph printing and laser-cutting.

Whether you're creating a zine, a narrative for a start-up or a short film for digital publishing, this course is for you if you want to tell stories and connect with a variety of audiences.

A defining feature of the course is its focus on cross-disciplinary projects, allowing you to use a huge range of different mediums.
