The Visual Effects (VFX) for Film and Television course at Arts University Bournemouth was created in response to an industry demand for visual effects artists who possess strong observational skills and the ability to apply them collaboratively in the workplace.


The Visual Effects (VFX) for Film and Television degree from Arts University Bournemouth prides itself on the currency of its staff. You will be taught by industry professionals that between them have worked at studios, including ILM, Framestore, Double Negative, Electronic Arts, MPC, Image Engine, Weta Digital and many more. 

We have taken the knowledge gained at these studios and have brought it into the classroom. 

Key Features 

  • Having worked in the industry at the highest levels, we not only know what makes a strong artist, but also what the visual effects industry is looking for. 
  • We are focused on our graduates’ successful entry into the VFX industry, as well as them having a long and successful career.

Programme Structure

  • We’ll teach you the technical and technological disciplines necessary for visual effects work, helping to develop an appropriate knowledge of 2D and 3D software in preparation to develop new skills at Levels 5 and 6.
  • You’ll attend a series of practical workshops, lectures and seminars, building competencies in the generation of concepts, the construction of digital assets and the processing of live action footage.
  • Alongside processing moving imagery, you’ll develop an aesthetic awareness through observational drawing and painting, utilising both traditional materials and digital solutions. This helps to develop an ability to evaluate different approaches to solving production problems.
  • You practice is underpinned by an engagement with historical and cultural contexts, and you’ll develop essential research and study skills which help you develop an ability to present, evaluate and interpret information from multiple sources.
