This 40 week programme provides learners with the skills to take up an entry-level position, or continue study.

Want a career in 3D production? This is where it starts.

Combine artistry with the latest technology and get the skills you need to turn your creative concepts into compelling images that capture the essence of movement, bringing characters and scenes to life.

Learn techniques in character modelling, rigging and character animation, and use dynamics and particles, with cloth and fluid simulations, to achieve impressive visual effects. With sophisticated lighting and rendering techniques, create work with a professional polish.

You’ll use industry-based processes throughout the year, from creating conceptual artwork and storyboards to building a showreel that reflects your talent and skills.
