Overview

Recognised as one of the largest media hubs in Europe, Manchester is a vibrant city with a wealth of opportunities to connect with the animation sector. Through the course you will be introduced to techniques relevant to cutting-edge animation and the underlying principles of motion, performance and expression. The (Hons) Animation course from Manchester Metropolitan University focuses on the creative practices, motion and storytelling fundamentals that are at the heart of all animation, irrespective of technique. Animation is one of the fastest growing sectors in the creative industries and due to our ever-growing hunger for animated content there are now many opportunities to work in this vibrant field.

Careers

The move of the BBC and ITV children’s departments to MediaCityUK has enhanced an already strong children’s media ecosystem. Skilled talent in animation is necessary not only for the high-profile children’s animation programming, but also for the myriad of agencies that produce high-end animated content for gaming, marketing/advertising, e-learning, publishing, visual effects, augmented reality, architectural visualisation, app development, prototyping, etc. There is an ever-growing demand in Manchester for this type of talent, which makes Manchester Met’s focus on future animation so timely and exciting.
