Entry Requirements

We are looking for highly motivated creative students with some prior experience in animation or a related area. Usually applicants will have an honours degree in the Visual Arts but those with other academic qualifications or relevant professional experience are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates are usually invited to interview if this is practical. You will be expected to articulate a clear vision of the potential role of animation in the development of your own creative practice and will be expected to make a short presentation of previous work relevant to animation and your potential development in this field.

Student Profile(s)


I have especially enjoyed how open the tutors are, which has been one of the most important aspects of the course for me and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone. I embarked on my final project without knowing where it would take me but the techincal skills I gained during the course and the support of my tutors gave me the confidence to pursue it.
