Are you an international student?

This course is about animation – the original multimedia discipline – what it is, what it’s for, how you do it, and why. There is no limit to the variety of materials and methods that can be used to make animated films, and, although producing animation can be a lengthy process, its creative possibilities must make it the ideal vehicle for anyone who wants to see their ideas come vividly to life.

Animation appears in a multitude of forms - cartoons, advertisements, music videos, computer games, multi-media material, special effects and as experimental and sponsored art films.

Students studying Animation at Edinburgh College of Art have access to most of what they need to realise their animated ambitions. The academic and technical staff will supply the encouragement, expertise and technical facilities, if students contribute the imagination, curiosity and commitment. Work by Edinburgh College of Art animation students frequently wins national and international prizes and is regularly screened at film festivals around the world.
