Summary

This Master’s in 3D computer animation is the perfect launch-pad for a career in a wide range of disciplines, including concept design, character and creature animation, modelling, lighting, rigging, texturing, compositing and simulation. This course will help you acquire the skills needed to work in a number of areas where computer animation is applied, including films, animated features, computer games, television production, commercials, illustration, scientific visualisation, flight simulation, virtual environments, architectural visualisations and interactive media.

We enjoy very strong links with industry, due largely to the ubiquity of NCCA graduates in the film, game and television industries. We host regular visiting practitioners lecture series where you'll be able to learn about the 2D and 3D industry from practicing artists and companies, as well as attend regular Masterclasses from professionals. Over the past five years we have attracted some of the best Visual Effects, Animation and Games studios from around the world to present to our students and we've created a professional studio environment where you'll be provided with your own workstation which is accessible 24/7.
