BA (Hons) Animation is a practice-led course, enabling you to choose one of four specialist pathways that reflect industry specialisms – animation arts, 3D computer animation, visual effects and games arts.


Learn the fundamental skills and principles of animation in an intensive and collaborative setting where you’ll develop knowledge and understanding of the whole production process.

After your first year you’ll choose one of four specialist pathways: 

  • BA (Hons) Animation: Animation Arts
  • BA (Hons) Animation: 3D Computer Animation
  • BA (Hons) Animation: Visual Effects (VFX)
  • BA (Hons) Animation: Game Arts

The collaborative nature of the pathways ensures that you will graduate with the technical, creative and critical skills to work both in a specialist role within your field, as well as in a multidisciplinary context within the creative industries. You will benefit from access to a broad range of specialist creative industries and a network of professionals and key industry partners.

As a revalidation, BA (Hons) Animation will retain its distinctive course features, most notably:

  • A playful, curious and experimental approach to animation
  • A questioning and critical investigation of format and audience
  • Embracing physical making and how that can be used to inform aesthetics unique to digital environments
