About this course

This degree allows you to explore creative fields including animated filmmaking, visual effects, game development and the visual arts by providing a solid grounding in the fundamental concepts, practices and history of animation. You can tailor your learning to the industry areas of most interest to you. From the first year you will develop your knowledge and skills of 2D and 3D animation, introducing you to the methods and processes involved in animating computer-generated characters to achieve convincing and appealing actions.

You will be encouraged to experiment with a range of animation styles and techniques while producing your own animations, graphics and visual effects. Studies in industry workflows, tools, process and skills will equip you with a strong understanding of current industry practices—from concept development to timelines and finished works. Later in your degree your studies will include CGI production in preparation for final-year projects and work integrated learning opportunities.

Double degrees

Combine your degree with a second degree to gain a broader range of skills and knowledge, a competitive advantage and enhanced career flexibility. Choose a double degree with:

  • Business to broaden your skill set and make you stand out to employers, or give you the abilities to start your own creative enterprise.
