    Hello, I can't find any kind of reviews on this course. Im a passionate computer animator and have started to learn ZBrush and Maya when I was ten years old. At this stage, I can say that I have a good and solid rage of skills in this area. I would love to apply to a university like calArts, or Gnomon, or SCAD, or even Fullsail university. But unfortunately these are all completely out of my budget. On the other hand, Edinburgh university, one of top universities in the world has a BA on animation and as an EU citizen, the course is actually quite cheep and affordable. This makes it quite appealing to me and I would be flattered to apply to this, even if it is a blend between 3D and 2D animation, but I can't find any account from anyone who did this course. Can anyone describe their experience and tell me if it is worth it?

    Hi,
    Yeah I’m in the exact same position as you atm. Edinburgh is my first choice but they only have about 16 places for first years! What I heard about the course is that it’s more experimental. So idk it’s more combined with fine art and unique ways of making animation.
    You can see students work on their Vimeo. Just type ‘ECA animation’ and it will come up!
    If you’re more interested in like production and just dead straight making cartoons than Bournemouth is really good but again really hard to get into without doing a foundation first and their course is based on teamwork so you’ll have to animate with a group, no buts.
    Again you can find their work on Vimeo ‘aub animation’
    I hope this helps

    If you are interested in working in commercial animation then teamwork is an essential skill. Nobody makes animations on their own in the commercial world, so experience of how to work within a team is one of the requirements most employers look for. Obviously if you prefer experimental / arthouse animation then working solo is fine. Regarding the software you mention; it sounds to me like you are focused on working commercially.
