All the students work differently so it was really beneficial to bounce ideas off my friends in the studio. NUA has the perfect creative atmosphere.

Alex Nicholson
Illustration graduate

My experience at NUA has allowed me to develop my own voice as an illustrator, and has always provided an engaging and passionate environment to work in.

Rupert Smissen
Illustration graduate

I will graduate well informed on issues such as how to become self employed or the pros and cons of being represented by an agency, as well as being made aware of the different types of job that might be available to me.

Nicola Jones
Illustration graduate

My course is broad and allows me to experiment a lot. I’ve started using the printing facilities and they’ve opened up a new world for me. It shows you can leave the studio and find other things happening at NUA.
