Animation BA (Hons)

Animation / BA (Hons)
Franchised Course, University for the Creative Arts (UK)

This flagship UCA animation course is one of the best in Europe. Established in 1972 by the British Oscar-winning animator Bob Godfrey, it was the first degree to specialise in the academic study of animation.

UCA BA Animatiion course alumni are second-to-none and include nine Oscar winners and nominees including Michael Dudok de Wit, Daniel Greaves and Suzie Templeton as well as numerous BAFTA and British Animation Award winners and nominees.

Many successful studios have been set up by our alumni including McKinnon & Saunders (Fantastic Mr. Fox, Corpse Bride etc.), Astley Baker Davies (Peppa Pig), Animade and the Moth Collective. This gives the course solid links to a wide range of creative talent, studios and potential employers.

The course itself is committed to the study and exploration of animated filmmaking. It encourages creativity and individuality through a broad definition of animation, which includes any technique that is created ‘frame by frame’.

We respect all well-established traditional approaches to animation whilst fully integrating all of the digital techniques and standards of a rapidly evolving industry.

Critical and Theoretical Studies (CTS) help develop an in depth understanding of animation, its practices and contexts, and support all of the studio practice.
