Program content

Year 0, the first year of a 4-year degree, runs over one academic year during which students complete four units. In term one they will begin a unit in Explorative Media and Design studies. They will also complete a unit in English Language, which continues throughout Term 1 and 2 and provides the basic transferable skills necessary to underpin their practical and theoretical work. In term two students commence their Specialist Study unit and engage in a series of projects designed to broaden their chosen discipline knowledge and skills of either Animation or Games Design. These will become more challenging as they move into term three to start the Final Major Project.
