Summary

This vocational course is focused on helping you develop a range of skills to serve the dynamic and fast-moving animation and VFX sector within the creative media industries, as well as a knowledge and understanding of the range of potential career paths that you could pursue upon graduation. There is a strong focus on industry practice and learning how the animation and VFX industry works in the UK. You will be taught by former specialists in the field, including ex-Aardman employees, which will enhance your opportunities to learn about the possible career paths and the skills needed as a practitioner in the different areas.

What do I need to join?

Five GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English and maths. Mature applicants will be considered based on their individual merit. All applicants need to bring a portfolio of creative work to their interview and must successfully complete a college taster day.

Maths & English

A key requirement to obtaining many jobs is achieving a good standard of English and Maths. Therefore, learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade 4 (grade C) in these subjects will be enrolled on either a GCSE or Functional Skills course alongside their main study programme.

Work Experience

All students complete a work placement each year; in the first year, you will work with others to produce a media product for a client, while in the second year, you will negotiate your own placement, or participate in a selection process for placements with local media employers.

What can I do next?

It is expected that students from this course will be suitably prepared for entry level employment within the Creative Industries, though most will progress on to BA(Hons) degree in animation and/or VFX and move into working life from there.
