A few spots still available on our new course in September

High Wycombe wants you
We're still welcoming new applicants for the last few available spots on our new Animation and Visual Effects course at Bucks New University starting this September. We're looking for students with a real passion to do animation and visual effects work, a drive to become a digital artist and take advantage of the myriad opportunities for animation, games and online work in the new economy. Animation is now big business, and we want to give all our graduates the best possible head start.

The most important thing you need to succeed is a passion for the medium and the desire to learn. Animation is hard work, and takes a while to learn. You will also need a creative spirit - someone who loves to doodle or sketch ideas is perfect for our course. Computer literacy is also vital; not that you need to know the software before you begin, but a willingness to learn and a desire to embrace digital challenges is all part of the job. Getting stuck on a technical problem? - Google it. You will not be the first person to face this hurdle.

Formally, we require 200 UCAS points to get started. But, apart from basic literacy and maths, we're not really that hung up about academic qualifications. Creativity and computer literacy are the building blocks of your career, plus a lot of determination.

We're excited about our new course. If you would like to know more, you can email us at Bucks (see my email address and Dave's at the top of the blog), and we will answer any questions you have.

You can also take two minutes to watch this short video which sets out our big ambitions for our new course.
