Our MArt combines undergraduate and postgraduate study in a single course. It is informed by critical theory and research, and includes an industry placement or international exchange. You graduate with a masters degree at the end of four years’ study. This means you have the advantage of the undergraduate fee repayment structure where you don’t start paying back your fees until you are earning above a set limit. This is currently £15,000 a year. Normally you would pay postgraduate course fees when you enrol. Animation plays an important role in a range of media including film, television, entertainment software and the internet.
