In your first year you'll develop skills and knowledge in a variety of areas including drawing development, 2D animation, digital and motion graphics, 3D modelling, the games and animation industry and sound for game and animation. This time will enable you to identify your strengths and personal interests to help you grow as an artist and designer. You’ll have access to our incredible facilities where you’ll be supported by teams of subject specialists.
You'll study areas including:
- 2D animation
- 3D modelling and motion graphics
- The games and animation industry
- Sound for game and film.
By exploring each area in detail, you'll be able to make an informed choice for specialist study.
During your second year you will develop the skills and knowledge you have gained from year one and progressively specialise in an area that interests you where you will have the freedom to develop ideas and discover your personal strengths and abilities.
Most students will also undertake a short placement to foster vocational and personal skills.
As the year progresses, you’ll have more freedom to specialise and determine the direction of your course, resulting in an exhibition of your work at the end of the year and a unique and varied portfolio, ready for your undergraduate degree or employment.
You’ll have the opportunity at the end of the second year to progress to one of several related degree courses here at UCA with the skills you have learnt, or you may decide to choose an exciting career in the games and animation industry.
