Animation courses in the UK will enhance and teach you the critical skills needed for drawing, character animation, graphics and video production. Many courses are taught by industry professionals who have extensive knowledge of this highly skilled field.
Course modules will generally include Illustration, visual communication, digital film and animation, visualization, design, animation for computer games and general media. You will be expected to create work which can be used in films, television advertisements, cartoons and computer games, and already have a base talent both creatively and technically.
Alongside learning the core practical skills needed to succeed, students will also study conceptual and theoretical topics such as art, design, communication, narrative and scripting. Animation media allow students to become part of the 3D, CG, games and film production networks in the UK and beyond.
Animation will prepare you for work in the fields of digital media, with roles such as film, television, advertising and computer game production being the main areas of employment.
The animation industry is very competitive, and graduates may have to work at an entry level position, such as a runner or assistant, when looking for their first role. Freelance work is also a popular avenue of employment, whereby you can pick and choose to work with many different outlets.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
