School of Art and Design

BA (Hons) Illustration

Welcome and Preparation

Welcome to the University of Portsmouth and BA (Hons) Illustration.  We are proud of the achievements of students past and present.  Our course is unique, in that it offers each student the opportunity to explore contemporary and traditional methods of working practices, and develop individually.

You can see the latest information regarding events, competitions, communication from our Alumni and more, on our blog: http://pompeyillustration.blogspot.co.uk/

You can also see examples of student works at our website, an archive which has been running since 1995. Go to: http://illustration.port.ac.uk/

There is no immediate hurry to buy equipment, but you may wish to bring a supply of art materials, including pens, pencils, a ruler, coloured paints, brushes, sketchbooks and scissors. These are the kind of materials you probably already have. There will be a need to purchase other items through the year and we have a well-equipped Art Shop in Eldon Building.

We hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing you in September.

Best wishes,

BA (Hons) Illustration Course Team
