NZQA Accredited, level 7 programme. Semester Two starts July 24.
Animation College’s Bachelor of Animation is a three-year course, with an option to go on to a fourth, Honours Year. The degree gives you everything you need to enter the animation industry as a specialist in Story and Character, World-building and Visual Effects, or Interactive Media and Games.
The first two years are devoted to giving you a thorough grounding in all disciplines, so that you can work effectively with other specialists in studio teams, or as a generalist. The third and fourth years let you dig deeper into your chosen field to develop expertise. Fourth year also has you working on original, large-scale stories and interactive concepts, and collaborating with commercial studios and business entrepreneurs on innovative projects.
What sets Animation College qualifications apart from the rest is our focus on teaching storytelling and animation principles to evoke emotion and engage audiences. This gives our students opportunities to develop their creative abilities, understand animation at the deepest level, and work with writers and entrepreneurs to create original and compelling commercial products.
