"BA(Hons) Illustration helped transform me from someone that likes to draw, into an illustrator. You're taught everything from problem solving techniques and colour theory, to time management and professional practice. The course also takes you to Paris and New York in an attempt to boost your portfolio and meet people from the industry. I loved the whole experience and left Falmouth with the knowledge and confidence to dive straight into my dream career. Falmouth itself is a beautiful seaside town with a small, but strong student community."
