From the outset, through experimentation and the development of your own original ideas, you will create 2D and 3D game assets and animations. You will be working with industry-standard creative software, that is also used in both the film and television industries, and game engines used by developers throughout the world.

Through independent and collaborative assignments you will be developing functioning and creative game products to a high standard, and you will explore and develop your creative abilities to their full potential.

Your course will provide excellent value for money featuring high contact hours with the tutors, which will help to instil the discipline, training and professional standards and expectations that the industry demands.

You will be expected to be highly motivated and self-disciplined, cultivating an independent approach and the willingness to try new techniques and explore new ways of working.

  • Animator
  • Art Director

  • Flash Animator
  • Graphic Designer

Teaching and assessment


We know that our students learn in different ways. To help everyone get the most out of their studies, we teach through a combination of lectures, workshops, and practical sessions. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor (or equivalent) at least twice a year to help support you in your studies. You will be taught in high-quality learning spaces throughout your course, and of course will have access to virtual learning environments to enhance your learning opportunities. Many of our courses are accredited or recognised by professional, statutory or regulatory bodies.


Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module will give you a variety of opportunities to receive informal feedback from your tutor. These may include classroom discussions, discussions in the virtual learning environment, presentations, milestone assessments, and practice assessments. Informal feedback is developmental and any grades you may receive for these do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.


You will normally receive feedback on formal coursework assessments within 20 working days following the date of submission. Examination feedback may take a variety of formats, including one-to-one discussions with your tutor. However, as a minimum, generic feedback will be made available to all students who take written examinations.
