    It can be important for dramatically increasing your chances of getting employed. The Creative Skillset courses have a much higher employment rates than the non accredited courses in the field of animation for example. Depending on the course / industry you are looking to go into in future, a degree from a Skillset course might help considerably due to the bursaries that Skillset pay towards the industry for your first job - for example in the field of Visual Effects Skillset currently offer to pay half a graduate's salary for the first year of their job, which means that employers are much more likely to hire an accredited graduate than a non accredited graduate.
