Computer Animation Art and Design

If you are serious about a career in animation, you should seriously consider studying at Bournemouth University's National Centre for Computer Animation. The NCCA is renowned within the computer animation industry for the quality of graduates it produces, with Oscar-winners amongst its alumni. Mark Ardington, VFX Oscar winner 2016, has said "If you want to go into animation or VFX, Bournemouth is, from my opinion, the best place to go." Our NCCA graduates have gone on to work on some of the most successful films of recent times, including Antman, Harry Potter, Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them, Avatar and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In 2011, the Centre was presented with the Queen’s Anniversary Award for its contribution to world-leading excellence and pioneering development in the teaching of computer animation and, after five years, a typical BU graduate in this subject had earnings that were ranked first of all universities for this subject (from a total of 123 universities).* As a graduate from this degree, you’ll have a well-rounded knowledge of the design and aesthetic principles required in computer animation production, and be able to fulfil roles such as computer graphics and animation artistic director, visual effects artist and visual effects supervisor in the fields of computer animation, visual effects and computer games industries. *Statistic from Longitudinal Educational Outcomes (LEO 2017).
