Study a Animation degree in China in 2024

Animation is a creative discipline that is known for its work of making inanimate objects move. The most common use of this is in film and television. Historically, animation has been created by drawing or painting images by hand onto transparent sheets, which will then be photographed and shown on film. Nowadays, the vast majority of animations are made with computer programs and are all computer generated imagery.

During an Animation degree, you will cover the basics of animation, as well as looking at the specifics of the computer programs needed to be an animator. Some examples of modules you could study are:

  • Introduction to Animation
  • Visual Effects (VFX)
  • Pre-production and Visual Development
  • 3D Computer Animation
  • Applied 2D Animation

Study in China

China has long been regarded as a global superpower when it comes to economic, business and political standing. Its reputation as a higher education destination has taken longer to earn, but is rewarded on merit. The country's government has invested in university and higher education over the last few years, with the aim to increase the international student population. This investment has meant that there are many more courses offered in English than there were a few years ago, making China a new and exciting destination for international students.
