Animation, computing and games are some of the fastest-growing industries in the world, with the UK leading the way in global trends. The sector was valued at a record £5.11 billion in 2017 and is predicted to grow by £8 billion over the next four years.

Almost half of the UK’s gaming companies are based in London and the South East, and with over 80% of them looking to increase their workforce, there are more career opportunities than ever before.

Sitting at the forefront of new technology and user design, learning these subjects in a creative arts environment gives you the opportunity to discover exciting, imaginative worlds of your own creation.

By studying with us, you’ll be able to explore animation, computing and video games through a range of techniques, all taught by our expert academics.

Our teaching teams include leading industry professionals, published authors, award-winning experts and working animators, coders and game designers, all with valuable links to industry. Subject tutors have worked for household names such as Warner Bros., DC Vertigo and Supermassive Games.

As a graduate on one of our courses, you’ll be amongst several Oscar, BAFTA and British Animation Awards winners, and students who have had their films showcased at festivals in the UK and around the world, such as the British Animation Awards and the Miami Independent Film Festival.
