Our technicians are friendly and always there to help students with equipment and software. You can also hire out professional film/sound equipment, graphics tablets, lightboxes and other kit, as well as booking sound and video studios, including a state of the art Film studio with Green Screen for VFX. Excellent industry links include our panel of award winning talent from our region (Dice Productions, Yaminations, Second Home Studios and Exient), who provide support and real-world experience.

Close collaboration with the Computer Games Design & Development course gives you the chance to gain a valuable understanding of how games are engineered, as well as experiencing team work opportunities mirroring industry practice.

Career opportunities

In addition to developing your capabilities as an animator or game artist, the course will enable you to develop a wide range of transferable skills, from research and critical thinking, to problem-solving, to communication and negotiation. You will find career opportunities not only in animation production or the games industry, but television motion graphics, compositing, visual effects and independent filmmaking.

Our graduates have gone on to be employed in major production and games studios worldwide, including Sony Pictures, Aardman, ClothCat Productions and Rockstar Games.

Game Development is an expanding sector in the creative industries and this offers good opportunities for graduates from the course. The West Midlands is identified as the region with the highest number of employees in the game industry in the UK, so the University is ideally placed for undergraduate work opportunities for Game Art students, as well as placements on graduation.

Our interdisciplinary approach gives flexibility and a wider view of the world, which is attractive to employers. This course also provides an ideal base from which to go on to postgraduate study.
