Creating animation is a collaboration, and at the heart of this Animation course from Manchester Metropolitan University we encourage students to develop a strong network within the School of Digital Arts and industry focussed links. Animation is not a mono-discipline but multi-faceted, and our bracketed animation specialism reflects the many ways that animation can be applied and examined. From science communication, to award winning short films, to mind-bending VFX, animation touches and transforms many areas.
You will drive your creative projects in your chosen practice with staff who will guide and challenge you. Our postgraduate community is led by a specialist team of academic staff and visiting speakers who are practising artists, animators and researchers. They bring their passion and knowledge of the varied industries that animation feeds and share advice and expertise about how students will join them.
Courses at the School of Digital Arts have been developed with leading industry partners to ensure that you attain the industry-ready skills and technical abilities you'll need to gain experience, build a network and launch a career in the creative media, arts and digital tech industries.
