Bachelor of Illustration

Let the Bachelor of Illustration at Melbourne Polytechnic draw you in. Develop your practical skills and knowledge to a high level and engage in research based practice that will enhance your capacity to see the world in a different way. This unique degree also addresses business practice and opportunities for entrepreneurship in today’s creative arts industry

Drawn to illustrate

Research is an essential component of the Bachelor of Illustration. You will investigate a wide range of visual art practices and draw on history, technology, commerce, media and cultural studies as you analyse and critique the development of illustration and visual language.

Let creativity lead to a career

New avenues of creativity will be explored in this course. As well as addressing traditional practices such as publishing, advertising, promotion and editorial work, illustration now embraces many areas of contemporary visual culture.

Graduate illustrators can look to diverse career options in new media, film, urban design and art. You may realise your potential for personal expression and social commentary through the creation and production of comics and graphic novels.

Learn theory and practice for creativity and commerce

Learn from the wealth of experience and incredible support of our teachers, all leading industry practitioners with wide ranging fields of expertise. Benefit from their networks as you attend the Bachelor of Illustration’s weekly Creative Forum with leading creative industry figures.

Be part of Melbourne Polytechnic’s community of creative degree students and teachers at our friendly Fairfield campus, a location that’s peaceful, yet buzzing with creativity.

If you have successfully completed the first two years of the bachelor degree, you may choose to exit with the HEVAILLAD Associate Degree of Illustration qualification.
