  1. Hello,

    I’m a sixth form student and I am looking into what options there are for university.

    – I’m wondering but there’re many University of Brighton sites and in different locations, are they all linked or there’s different sites for different types of subjects?
    – What’s graphics illustration exactly? Does it include illustrations for marketing and covers etc.

    • Hi David
      Our arts courses are based at the City Campus in the centre of Brighton. We have a Graphic Design degree, a Design for Digital Media degree and an Illustration degree. You can find out more about the Graphic Design and Illusration courses here and more about the Design for Digital Media degree here.
      Very simply, graphic design is the art combining text and pictures and illustration is the creation of imagery to illustrate something – obviously there is a lot more to it than this so I would recommend looking at the course pages in depth. If you have any more questions regarding the content of the courses please do contact our enquries team or try chatting to a current student via our Unibuddy platform.
