Courses

Diploma in Digital Media Level 7                             

The Diploma in Digital Media (DDM) is an intensive one-year course of study designed to refine students’ fundamental animation skills and develop their knowledge. The year is fast-paced and relies heavily on students making their own schedules and managing their time wisely. Students will have the opportunity to work on their own film from start to finish with lessons and guidance to help them along the way in a simulated studio environment.

Bachelor of Animation

This unique and diverse degree will equip its students with everything they need to launch a career as a specialist in story and character, world building and visual effects, or interactive media and games. The programme kicks off with a thorough grounding across all disciplines, giving its students the animation chops to work as a generalist or as part of a studio team. From there, they can delve deeper into their own chosen field, developing the academic, creative and technical expertise that will really set them apart.

Industry Connections

The College stays in very close contact with the animation industry. It is up to speed with the latest animation trends and technologies and constantly talks to the people and businesses that could be the students’ future employer.

Sought-after Graduates

The skill-based learning at Animation College makes our graduates unique and in demand locally and internationally across a wide range of disciplines including animation, illustration, design, gaming, advertising, film and graphic novels or comic books. If students have a passion for animation, they will love the opportunities the College can offer to expand their creative potential.
