Hi divyanshi!

The University of Hertfordshire is a popular choice for animation courses. The MA Animation degree is a great way to develop your 3D or VFX Digital Animation skills. You will be able to specialise in VFX, 2D animation or 3D animation, or even a combination of the three! During the year you will get to work on live external briefs as part of your coursework. Our Animation Department and Graduates regularly receive industry awards - several of our students have been shortlisted for CG Awards in recent years.

University of Hertfordshire has a brilliant international community. We are already home to 3,800 International Students from 100 different countries! We have a vast array of societies including many country specific societies. The University of Hertfordshire is in a brilliant location - there are large green spaces nearby, yet the University is only a 25 minute train journey from central London! The University of Hertfordshire has recently received a Gold teaching rating from the UK government meaning that it delivers consistently outstanding teaching and learning for it's students.

If you have any questions about the course of the University of Hertfordshire, let me know!

Are you able to visit the UK and attend some open days?

If not you can take a virtual tour of Bournemouth University, and you can even contact the academic staff to ask them any questions you may have.

This can be done by clicking on the "our staff" section of each course page:

MA 3D Computer Animation
MSc Computer Animation & Visual Effects

Are there any questions you have about Bournemouth in general?

MA 3D Computer Animation and MA Digital Effects are the courses I'm thinking for, not MSc Computer Animation and Visual Effects as it requires math and science students which I'm not

Does the MA Digital Effects course requires maths and science ? Or is it right for creative individuals ?

Hi divyanshi

Hope it's OK to post on this one. Not sure where you are based, but MA 3D Computer Animation is also delivered at Staffs. We have an open day this Saturday if you wanted to take a look around facilities.

Any questions, just shout, ^Shaun

Hi, all of entry requirements are listed on the course pages and link above for the MA 3D Computer Animation states the following:


The normal requirements for embarking upon a postgraduate taught degree are:

A Bachelors Honours degree with 2:2 in any subject
A professional qualification or diploma recognised to be equivalent to an honours degree
Industrial experience deemed to be equivalent to an honours degree
Applicants are also required to submit a portfolio in support of their application for this course.


The requirements for the MA Digital Effects are as follows:

A Bachelors Honours degree with 2:2 in any subject.
Professional Qualifications or Diplomas deemed equivalent to a 2:2 or above Honours Degree.
Industrial Experience deemed equivalent to a 2:2 or above Honours Degree.
A clear precise personal statement
Applicants are also required to submit a portfolio in support of their application for this course.

Although all subjects are considered, applications are particularly welcomed from recent graduates with a strong art based background, either through formal Undergraduate study of subjects such as Fine Art, Photography, Architecture, Graphic Design, Animation, Filmmaking etc. or from their own personal art practice. Those applying from a completely non-Arts background may wish to consider completing an Arts Foundation course first.


There appears to be no formal requirement for maths and English for either of those but a portfolio of work would need to be submitted.

If you have any questions or concerns about the specific entry requirements I would suggest emailing [email protected]

I hope this helps and good luck.

Vicki
