The course consists of practical study and how to combine illustration with communication and visual expression. The student is trained to work with their own free illustrative expression as well as being able to work as an illustrator against a client. Additionally, the student will explore the relation between text and illustration, and reflect upon the role of illustration in the world of communication. The various assignments given during the course will be submitted at the end of the course as a documentation and reflection of their acquired knowledge and experience.
To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.
However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.
There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
