Hey! I'm an AIH student, just a month or so off finishing my first year and it's very enjoyable.
The modules consist of;
- Life Drawing & Figure Studies (drawing nude models for five hours, anatomical studies)
- Exploring Illustrative Style (gets you to try a multitude of styles before settling on your own)
- Representational Illustration (realistic fully-rendered drawings of objects)
- Media, Materials & Techniques (making a variety of books, puppets and other 3D craft)
- Materials & Processes (engaging in different mediums and how to apply them)
- Art History (self-explanatory - lectures, gallery visits and exclusive talks)
- Computer Design & Application (worknig in the digital environment, Photoshop and Illustrator)
- Printmaking (exploring different classical print techniques, e.g. drypoint, acetone transfer)
You do maximum three projects per module in the first year, which is what you result is based on - no continous assessment.
It's a fairly easy-going if hectic course, the lecturers are great and have experience in what they teach (most of them teach on the side in fact). Lots to learn, regardless of what you've previously studied!
Since your post dates the 17th I presume you've had the interview, how did you get on?
