The Foundation Degree 3D Modelling and Animation for Games and Media course at Northumbria University is specifically designed to give you a taste of the CGI industry, covering the many different tools and assets of CGI design, whilst giving you the necessary skills and knowledge you need to prepare yourself to the creative industry.


The 3D Modelling and Animation for Games and Media course at Northumbria University is delivered through a combination of specialised classes, one to one tutorials and workshops, giving a large amount of support to students own creative ideas and projects. 

The first year of the course is an intense look at a wide area of skills within concept and 3D development, giving the student a chance to experience many different roles as a 3D artist while gaining a more specific understanding or their own goals.

Learning outcomes

The second year of the course is focussed on expanding creative and technical knowledge within 3D development and using it in a professional industry environment. This is done by with students working with industry clients on a given project.
