Hi there, I'm looking to study animation at Edinburgh in the upcoming year, would it be alright if I could ask a few questions about the course and application process? Don't really see that many people applying to animation so I thought I'd try asking around.

Hey :smile: - My class is roughly 20 people because the department is small. It’s good though because you get more 1:1 time with lecturers imo.

Ah tysm. A small class does sound ideal, but I guess it's just more difficult to get in lol. Thank you again!

No worries! Lmk if u have any other queries, there’s not many ECA animators on here- totally go for it though, it’s all about the portfolio :smile:

Listen, it’s not only about the ECA cos you are in danger of forgetting about the very big element of showing your work in a portfolio!

I’m guessing they don’t just accept 20 people a year? I’m assuming there’s more than one first year class?

It’s literally just 20 first years haha, the department very small. As is the film department which consists of 15 people (per year group)

I wouldn’t know sorry! I’d guess the class is like 20-25, but I don’t actually know anyone from fashion. Hope that helps a bit :smile:
