Best unis for animation Watch
I would say that Herts is certainly one of the best Universities in the UK for animation. In fact, industry group/directory The Rookies ranks our animation course as the 7th best in the world! We are the only UK University to make the Global Top 10 best schools for Animation, and one of only 4 European schools to make the Top 10.
Every year our students produce outstanding work, some of which can be viewed here. Our course is ScreenSkills accredited which ensures that your degree remains relevant to industry. You will also have the opportunity to carry out an optional work placement as part of this course too! Our University also has great employability ratings, with over 96% of our graduates in work or further study within 6 months of graduation.
Let me know if you have any questions about the course, University or Portfolio requirements - I'll be happy to help
Hi I was just wondering what are the best unis for undergraduate 2D animation in the UK. I’m looking at Edinburgh, UCA Farnham, De Montfort, Hertfordshire and Teesside Middleborough
We're so glad to hear you're considering us for Animation! De Montfort University is an amazing place to study this course.
A great advantage of attending DMU is our DMUGlobal initiative. DMU offers trips and studies abroad with a bursary included for every single student. These can be course-led or university-wide trips, so can benefit your studies and also gain some amazing life experiences. As a third-year film studies student, I have been to the Berlin International Film Festival, the Cannes Film Festival and am due to go to Hollywood in April. Here are the details of some of the other trips on offer: https://www.dmu.ac.uk/current-studen...mu-global.aspx
Also, one of our Animation alumni is Gareth Harbuz who has gone on to work on The Dark Knight Rises and Captain America: The First Avenger, just to name a few projects!
For animation, we have state-of-the-art facilities in our Vijay Patel building so you will have a comfortable learning and workshop environment. You can take a 3D tour of our facilities through the link below, and come to one of our open days! We have some on the 9th November, 7th December and the 11th January.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding DMU, the student experience, or anything else you can think of.
