Why choose this course?

If you have a passion for moving images, bringing characters to life and storytelling, this new specialised Animation programme will transform you into a versatile creative in the art of the moving image.

  • explore the principles of animation with a focus on 2D techniques.
  • work in teams on an informative motion graphic project for a real client.
  • practice character animation using 3D techniques to build up a show reel.
  • specialise and develop a final degree project. 


If you do not wish to apply for the Integrated Masters' level, you may choose to study this course as a three year degree
