Animation is reaching into more and more industries because of the increasing virtualisation of cultural material, the application of visualisation in a range of settings, and the emergence of new industries which rely on animators. This study area is suited to those seeking to broaden their employment options or transfer their existing design skills into digital forms.
Because animation requires strong practical capabilities, you will gain technical skills through studio-based learning. You will explore your creative potential as an artistic practitioner and also as a professional working in an animation setting.
You will study the fundamental principles of animation and its application in design contexts, and build a theoretical framework for your studio practice. You will have the freedom to choose the areas of animation you wish to study from topics such as motion graphics, programming, drawing, concept design and character development.
Why choose this course?
The animation study area has been designed in collaboration with industry specialists and teaches industry‑standard tools with opportunity for one‑on‑one skills acquisition modules. Learning from lecturers from industry and specialist academics means you will receive up-to-date knowledge and the tools to navigate a career within a volatile industry characterised by change. Leading-edge, applied research in animation and interaction design is conducted in our co-located research centres, providing opportunities for you to engage in research and real-world projects.
An undergraduate degree with an overall minimum grade point average of 5.0 or above (on a 7-point scale). Students whose undergraduate degree is in a related creative industries discipline may apply for the Previously Studied Pathway.
