Launch your career in a rapidly growing sector. You’ll learn and develop animation skills using industry-standard software, working creatively across a range of subjects, from traditional art practices to the complex work of visual effects. Supported by experts from all forms of animation and visual effects, you’ll experience a professional studio environment. Discover all forms of animation, trying your hand at 2D and 3D computer, stop motion and experimental work.
