The opportunity to experiment with cutting-edge animation technology
is what attracted me to this exciting course.


This course provides an exciting mixture of approaches to animation
and illustration and will provide you with the necessary skills to
function as a professional.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • The opportunity to exhibit your work at such design expositions as
    New Blood and New Designers, as well as such prestigious locations as
    The Public Gallery at the Hangzhou Animation Festival
  • The opportunity to undertake a work placement or study abroad
    between years two and three
  • A highly accomplished teaching team who represent a dynamic range
    of experience within illustration and animation practice. From
    publishing to animation and CGI, these award-winning practitioners
    bring the reality and expectation of creative professional practice
    into the studio
  • Guidance on a range of technologies, both traditional and
    technological, that are used in both illustration and animation at a
    professional level
  • The opportunity to experiment and develop animation skills with
    specialist equipment, including the dedicated high-end stop motion
    equipment in the stop motion shooting area

This course is based around a wide range ofapproaches to the
development of your own work in relation to both illustration and

Drawing is a key element that will underpin your studies but you will
also study a range of approaches to both disciplines so that you can
begin to develop your own signature work.
