Course overview 

The film, games and SFX industries are always searching for new talent. BA (Hons) Animation and Games Art will allow you to explore the pre-production pipeline and be able to apply animation to a wide range of media. You will develop a wide range of traditional animation techniques, plus key digital skills in 2D and 3D, while learning the core principles of character-led animation.

The University of Sunderland is a member of the Design and Art Directors Association, and working on live projects is an integral part of the course. You'll be working on entries for festivals and competitions such as Red Bull Canimation and E4 Stings. It's all part of our commitment to mixing academic rigour with practical skills.
