BA (Honours)/MArt The Art of Computer Animation (Integrated Masters)

Breathe life into characters and creatures, and create entertaining performances for the world to enjoy.

Do you dream of working in the animation industry or even starting your own studio? Advancements in technology and the boom of the VFX industry have made computer animation one of the fastest growing industries. Our animation degree has been developed in collaboration with top practitioners to provide you both the professional skills and knowledge that the industry is looking for.

Bring your characters to life from day one - working in industry-style studios using the latest tools and techniques and working as part of a team on high-quality creative projects. You'll have intensive, hands-on tutorials with industry-trained tutors who, alongside practising animation professionals, will provide regular feedback on your work.

You'll graduate studio ready, with a professional portfolio of work to show employers, and a degree awarded by the University of Kent.
