Program description

BA (Hons) Animation

Animation at university breathes life into the once static form; a sequence of drawings, a computer mesh, an armature inside a stop-motion puppet or even sand on a lightbox. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

At Worcester you can set your animated spirit free. Enjoy three years of specialist training and personal creative development, with a dedicated course for the independent animator, tailored to individual aims.
