About the course

Do you dream of working in the animation industry or even starting your own studio? This degree will give you the professional skills and knowledge you’ll need. Best of all, it’s been developed in collaboration with top animation practitioners, so it will help you become the kind of professional the industry is looking for.  

What to expect

  • Throughout the programme, you’ll work as part of a team on high quality creative projects that will grow in size and complexity over time.  
  • You’ll work in an industry-style studio from day one, using the latest tools and techniques, so you’ll get a true taste of what it’s like to work in animation.
  • You’ll have intensive, hands-on tutorials with industry-trained tutors, to help you learn specific skills and industry knowledge, plus regular feedback on your work from practising animation professionals. Our tutors are all top industry professionals, so you’ll be taught by the best in the business. They know how to turn your passion for animation into a practical, studio-ready skillset.  
  • You'll graduate with a degree from the University of Kent. Known as the UK’s European University, the University of Kent is ranked 23rd in The Guardian University Guide 2017, it is also ranked 17th in the UK for research intensity out of 122 multi-faculty universities in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and has the fifth equal highest score for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2015, out of 115 multi-faculty institutions. It has also been voted one of the top five universities for teaching in the UK, according to the Times Higher Education (THE).
  • By your third year, you’ll be working in a team just like a fully developed animation studio, and if you decide to stay on for your fourth year, you’ll also learn about becoming an entrepreneur and develop the skills to start your own studio.  
  • We’ll also help you to create a professional portfolio of work to show employers, developed with advice and feedback from your tutors, mentors and industry professionals.
