Program description

Games Animation, Modelling and Effects (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Games Animation, Modelling and Effects (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree has a built-in foundation year, designed to teach you the core skills you’ll need to succeed in the following three years of your course.

This four-year degree is ideal if you can't meet the entry requirements for a standard three-year degree. This degree will provide the first step towards starting your career in animation and effects within the gaming industry.

Your foundation year will teach you the fundamentals of digital design and image making, as well as creative practice in terms of composition and colour. You’ll produce work in different formats such as a journal, album and instruction manual. You’ll also create a project within a subject area of your choosing, allowing you to explore the more technical aspects of design.

Year 0 will ensure you are well-equipped to begin Year 1 of your games animation degree. You’ll be supported by our dedicated staff who will help you find your academic strengths and build your confidence. The foundation year on this course is shared with numerous other foundation year degrees, meaning you’ll interact and learn with students who are interested in other specialist areas.

Throughout the rest of the course you’ll become familiar with animation, rendering, modelling, lights/cameras and visual effects (VFX). This course has been designed with computer games professionals and games industry body TIGA

The foundation year of this course is shared with other games-related foundation degrees, so you'll get to study among students who share a variety of interests.

Following your foundation year, you'll study the same course content and modules as those who study the standard three-year degree. You'll also graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who study our Games Animation, Modelling and Effects BA (Hons) degree.

If you'd like to change your specialism by the end of your foundation year, there will be some flexibility to allow you to do this.
