Program Description

Combining theory with active learning in a studio environment, our 3D animation course gives you the practical skills needed to start your career in the animation or games industry.

With more than 2000 active games and animation studios in the UK, has there ever been a better time to enter the British gaming industry and take part in a game design course? As part of our 3D design course module you'll gain the knowledge and space to develop as an artist working with 3D software. You'll cover the key areas within the industry: character art, environment art, character animation, rendering and dynamics, virtual reality design, Z-Brush sculpting, 3D printing and a host of others. All this builds your confidence and equips you for a career in the industry.

On our course you will develop as an artist working with 3D software. The course framework includes project based collaborations and integrated workshops that are designed to develop observational drawing and technological skills essential to 3D computer animation production and computer games. This interdisciplinary approach combines a critical arts education with specialist knowledge in 3D technology and workflows.

The following course-related costs are included in the fees:

- A free electronic textbook for every module
- All printing and copying required for your study
- Self-service laptops available for loan for a maximum of 24 hours
- Audio-visual equipment available for loan, including digital stills cameras, digital video recorders, digital audio recorders

The following course-related costs are not included in the fees, and you may be required to purchase these to complete the course. The costs are approximate and may change due to changes in pricing at the retailer:

- Compulsory visits to museums and galleries
- Optional field trips
- Additional books that you wish to purchase.

More information:

  • Applications from mature candidates without formal qualifications are welcomed, provided they can demonstrate appropriate levels of relevant ability and experience. If you have achieved a qualification such as a foundation degree or HND, or have gained credit at another university, you may be able to enter a Middlesex University course in year two or three.
  • If you have relevant qualifications or work experience, academic credit may be awarded towards your Middlesex University programme of study.

Interviews and portfolios information:

  • Entry onto this course requires an online Zoom interview. The interview will start with a group welcome talk followed by 1-1 interviews. Details of your subject specific interview will be emailed to you.
  • As far as possible, students are required to attend an interview. You should allow two hours for the whole interview process as you will be offered the opportunity to view the facilities and meet appropriate staff and students. We use the interview to find out more about you, to better understand your aspirations and interests, and to explore why you want to study with us. Where prior qualifications are not available applicants with appropriate experience will be assessed on the evidence of their commitment and the quality of their portfolio.
  • If you are unable to attend the interview, you can submit a portfolio instead.
  • Portfolios for this course should include 10-20 pieces of work that represent your art and design skills and experience, together with your favourite sketchbook. This is a highly competitive course, however we welcome students from a variety of backgrounds; prior 3D software experience is not necessary. The main thing we look for in your portfolio is good observational drawing, imagination and a personal sketchbook filled with ideas.
