Kieren Phelps

"I’ve illustrated many editorial magazines and books since I first became an illustrator in 1982, including for the Sunday Times, Radio Times, the Listener, Car magazine, Nursing Times, Penguin, Longman, and Oxford University Press. I have explored many different media in the last 20 years, producing animated films, illustrations and a graphic novel using digital 'natural media' software. More recently I’ve made a return to traditional, black and white pen and ink."

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
