The BFA (Animation) provides an immersive and experiential studio-based education, focusing on the origination and development of animated projects for the screen. There is a strong emphasis on developing the student’s individual creative voice, while also underlining the need to speak effectively and freshly to an audience.

Housed in the School of Film and Television, this degree lives alongside the other degrees in directing and producing for live-action fiction and documentary, and screenwriting. This environment provides the animation student with a unique opportunity to develop professional-practice collaboration skills with programme makers from other specialisations.

Undertaking elective subjects offered by other VCA schools, or by the wider University community, gives the student the opportunity to investigate the generation of original creative work in other arts disciplines, or to strengthen their knowledge of current issues and debates in non-arts based fields.

The BFA Animation graduates will complete a deeply personal, artistically transformational, and highly professional course of development. With their creative, collaborative and technical skills they are optimally placed to make significant impact in the national and international creative industries.

BFA Animation graduates may also elect to undertake a 4 th year of study in the honours programme, or 2 years of further study towards a Masters degree.
