Are you looking to capture the imagination of an audience? Our animation degree will help you develop the practical skills and technical expertise you need to create your own film by the end of the course. You will be encouraged to express your own creativity and ideas and thanks to our close links with employers, there are chances to work on ‘live’ projects from industry so that you know your skills are relevant. The course is taught by industry professionals who have worked with the likes of BBC, Cartoon Network, Channel 4 and many others. You will be creating in the studio from day one, and using the very latest animation software, for which UCLan is one of only four institutions in the country to provide skillset funded training for professional animators in CelAction’ software. Course teaching is supported by fantastic animation facilities and studios catering for CGI, stop frame, 2D, illustrative, set building, model-making and sound recording, editing and sound design. Animation at UCLan enjoys an excellent reputation and for many years our students have been winners of Royal Television Society regional prizes and a national final for best undergraduate film in the country.
