Undergraduate Taster Days

Studio-ready graduates

Our undergraduate Taster Days are a perfect introduction to the software and skills taught on our degrees. At a Taster Day, you'll get the chance to:

  • Test-run the software used on VFX, Animation and Game Art (so you can decide which course might be for you)
  • Get some top tips for your portfolio during our Creative Portfolio Workshop
  • Meet our tutors and ask them questions about the degrees and what their favourite aspects are
  • Chat to our Student Ambassadors and Studio Assistants who'll be on hand to help you throughout the day!

"A lot of people, myself included, had never used Maya (the Animation software) before. The staff were very patient with the class and once you finally get the hang of things, you get very comfortable in the software very quickly."

- Jordan Coles (Second year Animation student)

Why attend a Taster Day?

Get taught by our expert tutors

Test-run our software

On the day, you'll get to use Nuke (for VFX), Unreal Engine (for Game Art) and Maya (for Animation). Everything you create on the day can be saved onto a USB for you to take home.
