    Maybe you should explain what you mean by options? Do you mean specific techniques / subjects / skills? Or do you mean what courses should you look at?

    Teesside does Computer Animation & VFX, their first year for that and character animation are the same. You can also tag along to game design lectures as they never notice if extras turn up.

    Hi Ximena Roldan!

    I currently study animation at Ravensbourne, maybe you'd like to take a look!
    Check here!
    Here at Ravensbourne we are strongly focused on 3D animation and VFX. I started out as a beginner, not aware of how to animate at all. They begin by easing you into 3D, teaching you the basics in first year on how to model and how to animate,. Then eventually building upon that through year 2 which leads to year 3 where we now have the capable skills to build the assets, they begin to introduce workshops for us to learn how to use unity or unreal engine to create games. I believe this course is a nice balance between weekly lectures and practical workshops.


    Hope this helps!
