New Animation courses to run from September

Birmingham Institute of Art & Design (UCE Birmingham) got the go-ahead yesterday for two new BA awards in Animation and Animation for Games Design. The courses share a core curriculum and student experience, diverging in the second year for students to focus increasingly on their chosen areas and career paths. Theory and practice are integrated throughout the three years (this was highlighted as good practice by the validation panel, and pleases me no end since I wrote the modules concerned), and there's a good blend of industry-led and experimental approaches thoughout. We start at the end of September 2007, looking to recruit 15 students initially. Enquiries to Steven.Hunt@uce.ac.uk.
