Animation is a broad creative subject that offers opportunities to all kinds of creatives, including storytellers, designers, artists, technologists and performers. It turns the possible into the magical and makes the impossible plausible.

BA(Hons) Animation (with Foundation year) is based at Bower Ashton Studios, part of our City Campus. Here you’ll find a range of excellent facilities for filmmaking, animation and photography, including our new animation studio spaces, digital media studios, production studios and physical making workshops.

Practical work is balanced by theoretical study, work experience and research activities, all designed to prepare you for work within a commercial environment. Live briefs, work-based placements and networking events assist the transition from education into professional practice.

Join a long-established animation community in which students are valued for their individual creative flair. You'll be taught by a team with extensive commercial experience, with regular contributions from commercial practitioners. This, coupled with our strong links with the UK's major animation companies, will ensure you benefit from professional expertise throughout the programme.

Showcase your work through our online presence, regular networking events and final year Creative Industries Degree Show to impress talent scouts and potential employers.

Our graduates have gone on to form careers in the animation industry, graphic design, computer games, illustration and so on, both throughout the UK and across the world.
