About Animation - Four Year at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

The first year (or year 0) of this four-year BA (Hons) Animation degree will develop the fundamental skills you’ll need to grow your potential as an animator. You’ll improve your observational and drawing skills, and you’ll also undertake theoretical studies to underpin your practical education. You’ll develop your research and design skills, as well as working on a personal project.

With alumni including Oscar and BAFTA winners, and the creators of beloved animations such as Peppa Pig, Fantastic Mr Fox, the Compare the Market’s ‘Meerkats’ campaign, and Hey Duggee, our Animation degree is one of the best known and highly regarded courses of its kind in the world.

Whether you want to make films using CGI software, use the latest 2D drawing processes or produce stop-motion films shot in our professionally equipped studios, you’ll be encouraged to follow your passions as you discover and develop your own creative approach to animation.

Throughout this animation course, you will have the freedom to discover and develop your personal style while being guided by a team of highly experienced and well-connected industry professionals.

Animation is one of the most significant and rapidly expanding media fields. An enormous range of career opportunities exist in animation, from the traditional techniques of animation storytelling to drawn, model and CGI animation.

Established in 1972 by Academy Award winner Bob Godfrey as the UK’s first course to take an academic approach to animation, we pride ourselves on giving our students a comprehensive understanding of frame-by-frame image manipulation using the growing range of creative techniques. You’ll develop a deeper understanding of narrative, character development, movement, sound, and the full range of expressive and personal filmmaking techniques contemporary animation now uses. As a long-established degree course, we’ve built an extensive network of industry connections, giving us access to high-profile visiting lecturers, commissions, competitions and exciting work-placement opportunities.
