In partnership with Aardman, this intensive 3 month Certificate in Character Animation is aimed primarily at graduates and is taught by industry professionals within Aardman studios here in Bristol.

The course is led by Loyd Price, Head of Animation at Aardman (Chicken Run, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Flushed Away, Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists and Nightmare Before Christmas) and taught by Inez Woldman (Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Morph, Creature Comforts) with the aim of bridging the gap between education and industry and enabling students to develop the core practical skills needed to become competent professional animators and to create believable characters through acting and performance.

The course has an incredibly successful track record with over 80% of graduates now working in the industry at Aardman and at studios such as Animortal, Factory Transmedia, Blue Zoo, Isle of Dogs and Traveller’s Tales. This year we are delighted to announce Factory Transmedia are formally supporting the course.

Students will also benefit from one-to-one feedback sessions and masterclasses with industry professionals, past speakers have included Turner, Passion Pictures, Blue Zoo, Factory Transmedia, Traveller’s Tales, Animortal and DreamWorks outreach.

Following on from a busy 2016 with the production of Early Man, the latest stop frame feature film from Academy Award® winning director Nick Park in full swing and a Shaun the Sheep Movie sequel in pre-production, Aardman are delighted to announce the new course dates for 2017. This year’s 3 month Certificate in Character Animation course will run from 25th September to 15th December and we are now accepting applications.

The course is open to both CG (Maya) and Stop Frame with a maximum of six students in each discipline. Course fees are £4500 which include free lunches and a two week paid internship in Industry after graduation.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course will take place at Aardman’s studio in Bristol and will be taught by practicing Aardman animators who have worked on many productions including Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, Flushed Away, The Pirates! and the Shaun the Sheep Movie. There will also be additional support from other industry professionals from both the stop frame and CG animation disciplines including Factory Transmedia who we are delighted to announce will be formally supporting the course this year.

The course is short but very intensive with the main aim being to produce students with the level of animation skills needed to allow them to get jobs as animators within this competitive industry. While this is no guarantee of future success, to date over 80% of former students have become animators within the industry.

The course is open to a maximum of 6 Stop Frame and 6 CG students, with the students working in either CG (using Maya) or Stop Frame (using Dragon-Frame). Students will be taught in small groups to enable maximum contact time with staff and other visiting tutors. The course will be taught in a series of weekly assignments, each focusing on a key aspect of animation performance. Students will be encouraged to repeat and finesse each assignment during the week. The course will be based on learning technical and practical skills, providing a foundation on which students can become technically proficient animators and thereby enable them to bring their characters to life. The course is structured to build from simpler exercises towards a short sequence demonstrating character-based performance, which will be animated within scheduled production deadlines.

The course runs from 9.30 – 6pm Monday to Friday. The course fee also includes free weekday lunches and a two week paid placement after graduation in a studio in the U.K. Past placements have included Factory Transmedia, Blue Zoo, Animortal, Isle of Dogs – Wes Anderson Feature, Aardman, JellyFish, and Travellers Tales.

On completion of the course students will:
-Have improved technical animation skills
-Be able to deliver convincing character acting and performance
-Produce their work to a deadline
-Understand the role of an animator with a production
-Have benefited from masterclasses with key industry professionals
-Have completed an industry placement

CURRICULUM

This is a 12 week full time intensive and practical course based at the Aardman studio’s in Bristol. The majority of the course is practical with students working on animation exercises to improve their skills, knowledge and experience.

Initially the course will focus on the core animation skills to ensure that students understand the key animation principles such as timing, weight and lines of action. These technical aspects of animation underpin character performance and are essential to enable students to achieve convincing performance.

Further character-based performance exercises increase the understanding of Character Posing, Blocking and Plotting the action within the shot or sequence. Each exercise builds on what has been learned in the previous week and students will have the opportunity to video themselves acting out variations of the exercises to guide and inform their work.

The course culminates in a short character animation sequence - pre-planned and boarded to showcase the skills learnt during the course. This sequence will be created within the parameters of a realistic production schedule and will reflect the pressures of a live production.

To complement the intensive animation training, students will have life drawing sessions, acting workshops as well as industry masterclasses. These give the students invaluable contacts within the industry moving forwards, as well as tips on how to promote yourself and the soft skills needed within a competitive industry. Past speakers have included companies such as Blue Zoo, Lupus, Jellyfish, Passion Pictures, Factory Transmedia, Turner, Richard Williams, Nick Park, MPC, DNeg and Dreamworks.

The course finishes with a graduation screening which is open to industry, giving students the platform to show their work and network with future employers.

Following on from the course we are aiming to secure a small number of paid internships with production companies based here in the UK. On previous courses these internships have taken place at companies such as Factory Transmedia, Blue Zoo as well as at Aardman. In many cases these placements then led to the students being offered jobs as animators.

-Daily tuition from animators currently working within the Industry
-Unique fast-track route into the Industry with many students going on to work as animators for UK animation companies
-Working methods based on Industry practice
-Situated in a professional studio environment at Aardman in Bristol
-Learn from BAFTA and Oscar winning animators

This programme is subject to validation.

The MA International Fashion Marketing brings together two disciplines for which Regent’s is internationally renowned – fashion and marketing – to provide future fashion marketing managers and directors with the practical and intellectual skills to lead and succeed in the vibrant and fast-changing fashion industry.

Our MA programme has been developed in consultation with industry experts and designed to ensure that our graduates are best placed to capitalise on new opportunities presented by the most sustained period of creative disruption in fashion since the industrial revolution.

Technological innovation is challenging long-established fashion systems and changing the ways in which the industry markets itself globally. Dynamic and fast-paced by nature, the industry is set to continue this period of disruption for the foreseeable future.

Our programme will place you at the heart of the fashion-business revolution, located in central London, the heartland of fashion.

In addition, you will benefit from a study trip to Milan, included in the fees, and have the opportunity to go to Paris and New York, covering all four of fashion’s premier destinations.

Why should I choose this programme?

If London is the fashion capital of the world, Regent’s is surely the best place to study in London. Located in royal Regent’s Park, we are often considered to have the most beautiful campus in the UK’s capital city – and with our sister site in neighbouring Marylebone Village, a haven for fashion and design, there is no better location.

The programme itself is thoroughly grounded in well-established fashion marketing theory and practice, while also focused on developing your personal, professional and leadership skills, as well as your ability to think creatively in response to change.

You will enter the industry in a climate of disruption and uncertainty, particularly to supply chain management and fashion marketing communications, but you will relish the opportunities that this presents.

We encourage students from different disciplinary backgrounds to join our cohort, not only business.

Based on years of experience, we consider there to be five essential elements to gaining the best possible postgraduate education in international fashion marketing and ensuring the most rewarding time as a student.

The best education in fashion marketing is:

‌•Intimate
‌•Intensive
‌•International
‌•Industry-focused
‌•Independent
‌•Intimate

Our teaching philosophy is based on personal attention: our classes are small, with a maximum cohort size of 20. Every student gets to know their lecturers and peers, and you will benefit from more contact time with teaching staff than you would elsewhere. The Regent’s mission is to develop tomorrow’s global leaders: we know that developing you as a future leader in international fashion marketing is most effectively done in an intimate learning environment.

Intensive

Our MA programme is dynamic and intensive, combining modular study with field trips, masterclasses, live projects and industry opportunities. We will immerse you in the fashion industry and the discipline of fashion marketing for the duration of the programme, as well as provide you with the connections to succeed thereafter.

International

There is no better place to study international fashion marketing than Regent’s. With students from over 140 nationalities spread across a small community of 3,500 full-time students, we can confidently claim to be the most internationally diverse university in the UK. With an unmatched international focus and a range of study opportunities at key destinations abroad, our MA programme is truly global.

Industry-focused

As well as being industry-focused in its design and content, your programme is delivered by practitioner lecturers, and encompasses live projects with industry as well as masterclasses with influential industry professionals.

In order to prepare you for careers in international fashion marketing, you will begin your relationship with staff from our dedicated Careers & Business Relations team from Day One, many of whom will jointly deliver your teaching on relevant modules.

Independent

As a private institution, independence is our legal status, but it is also an attitude of mind. We make an intellectual claim on independence, and our students are encouraged to think and operate with independence and individuality.

This is essential to success in both marketing and fashion. By the time you graduate you will have developed your own unique approach to international fashion marketing and your own strengths in relation to the industry.

Key skills, aims and objectives

As an aspiring fashion marketing manager or director, the aim of the MA International Fashion Marketing is to give you the intellectual and practical knowledge to create and implement a fashion marketing strategy within the complex, fast-changing and dynamic international context of the contemporary fashion industry, and to develop the skills necessary to lead and succeed in your future career.

The main educational objectives of the programme are to:

Provide an inspiring learning environment – an environment where you can feel confident that you are acquiring the knowledge and skills that will fully equip you to enter the international fashion industry as a consummate professional
Develop you as a distinctive individual – a professional who is capable of independent, innovative and entrepreneurial thinking in relation to complex and changing contexts
Hone your critical and creative thinking – offering you the opportunity to learn to apply critical, analytical and creative thinking to theoretical and practical fashion marketing briefs
Build your expertise – fostering a thorough knowledge and understanding of the nature and structure of the international fashion industry and its processes, from trend-forecasting through to distribution
Develop your intercultural intelligence – ensuring a sound knowledge of international fashion marketing management for international markets
Develop your technical and strategic skills – developing confident knowledge of marketing strategies, marketing activities and integrated marketing communications strategies and their applications within global fashion contexts
Foster your independence – cultivating your independent application of fashion marketing theories and methodologies
Develop you as an ethical practitioner – ensuring you graduate with a rich appreciation of the ethical and environmental responsibilities involved in the international marketing of fashion
Cultivate reflective practice – facilitating the development of effective reflective and self-management skills

Industry links

The idea of a Fashion Business Management MA was formulated in discussion with industry leaders. Building on the success of our Fashion Merchandise Management courses and in particular the close collaboration with industry we spoke extensively to senior fashion executives. Many felt that although doing an MA in Fashion Business Management would not ensure promotion, potential candidates who learn how to apply the knowledge they gain from the course can become leaders who can inspire others. Those candidates need to understand the values and culture of the industry and, most importantly, recognise the difference between information and knowledge and have clearly defined goals.

This support from industry is important both for you as a student and for the future development and relevance of the MA. We will continue to foster and maintain these important links with the fashion industry, and ensure that our Fashion Business Management MA stays at the forefront of education for the future leaders in the fashion industry. We will also continue to invite many prestigious and eminent guest speakers from the industry to participate on all the modules, ensuring that the course remains relevant, informed and up-to-date with current industry practice.

The only applied structural geology Masters in the UK. Providing you with advanced training in the practical application of structural geology, preparing you either for employment in the hydrocarbon or mining industries or for postgraduate study (PhD).

You’ll gain a skillset combining advanced structural techniques and interpreting seismic data, an understanding of structural systems in time and space, and an appreciation of both the geological and geophysical constraints of seismic interpretation and model building.

This will enable you to use a combination of structural and geophysical techniques to solve geological problems. As a capable seismic interpreter you’ll be able to contribute in an industry role from day one.

Our teaching is research led, with direct links to active applied research. You’ll be taught by a range of research and industry experts, as well as through industry-led workshops. Strong industry links are a feature of this course.

Course highlights:

  • The only applied structural geology Masters in the UK, offering you a route to both industry or a PhD.
  • Unlike other petroleum/ ore geoscience courses in the UK, which only provide you with broad training in all aspects of petroleum and ore geology. At Leeds, apply your skills, tools, and knowledge in structural geology and tectonics to exploration settings, datasets, and problems.
  • A key focus of this Masters is on understanding structural evolution in various settings and the use of 3D and 4D thinking in geological contexts. Skills that are essential for your employment in industry.
  • Gain an international standard of Masters qualification in 12 months rather than 24. We deliver focused, advanced teaching linked to a research project (in contrast to the more research-oriented US Masters).
  • Undertake free fieldwork in the UK and EU that is directly linked to your classroom learning.
  • Choose from hydrocarbon and mining module options, depending on your interests.
  • Access high-spec computing facilities and industry-standard software.
  • Produce an industry or research focused dissertation in your final year.

Fieldwork

The following fieldwork to the UK and overseas is free, and forms an integral part of the course. It is directly linked to learning outcomes in the classroom.

  • An introductory field day to Ingleton, North Yorkshire.
  • A 6-day trip to the South West of England. Consider both extensional and compressional tectonics, basin-scale to fault to reservoir scale deformation, fault seal analysis, kinematic and geometric fault evolution, restorations, and 3D fault analysis.
  • A 12-day trip to the Central Spanish Pyrenees. This trip serves as a summary trip where you will pull together elements from the entire course. Consider regional scale orogenic deformation through to basin scale to fracture scale. And the influence of sediment-structure interaction in basin evolution, and tie outcrop scale observations with seismic examples.

Course content

Develop personal skills and a professionalism that will make you employable, as well as increasing your knowledge and technical ability.

You will take 9 months of taught classes, followed by approximately 3 months of independent research and dissertation writing in association with industry or research collaborators.
