University of Wolverhampton


We have created a course we are proud to offer graduates like yourself who feel they need more time to develop their specialist portfolio, or to direct 'that' film. But most of all, we know that when you graduated from your BA you felt like it was the beginning… not the end. When designing our animation courses we spent a lot of time in the development stages discussing our ideas with industry creatives, graduates and students. As a result, the Animation team has developed a unique and ground-breaking philosophy that affects everything we do: 'CREATIVE EMPLOYABLE THINKERS': The idea is simple, everything you do on this course will be aimed at you becoming a Creative Employable Thinker. Every module you study, every grade you receive, all the feedback you get will be based around the central aim of you becoming a Creative Employable Thinker.
