The course of study has been introduced to improve animation skills of students and improve knowledge gained in the last two years.

The year is rapid and depends on students making their own calendar and managing their time. Students will have the chance to work on their own film from start to finish with lessons and supervision to help them along the way in a studio environment.

Programme Structure:

After two years of deep studying, your base couldn’t be firm, so it’s time to cast the chain off and put them to employ with a project year.

The projects give you the chance to improve skills in a studio environment under the supervision of experts. The course self-directed and you will be expected to manage time and workload efficiently.

The creative business is changing, so you’ll also be adapting emerging platforms to learn to launch your projects as a entrepreneur.

This is to make you prepare for all possibilities, and to help you touch the ground running when you start your creative career.

You will also be attending industry talks and workshops to back industry networking and improve portfolio skills, before you start your public identity on the Graduate Platform.

The main motive is to produce quality projects from start to finish.
