BA (Hons) 2D Digital Animation


Course Structure

First Year

You will concentrate on developing the essential skills you will need throughout the course, including character design, narrative, animation and drawing. At the same time, animation and film histories will add context to your study. As the year ends you will have the opportunity to switch to one of the other three degree routes within the programme. 

Second Year

During the Second Year you will develop the individuality and illustrative style demanded by today’s industry. Working with actors and mime artists, you will gain an understanding of character emotions and movement and how to apply this to your animation. Simulating real-world briefs, the course also explores title stings, idents and interactive media. At the end of the year, you will be able to put everything you have learnt into practice as you create a short animated film. 

Third Year

The Final Year is geared towards preparing you for a fascinating career in animation. You will carry out a final film project from start to finish, taking it from pre-production, storyboard and animatic through production and post-production. You will also produce a showreel and a professional website in preparation for work.
