The MA 3D Digital Design pathway is unique in providing an arena in which highly advanced, practical three-dimensional digital modelling and animation techniques are developed within a project-based environment, while being supported by a wider, contextual exploration of digital technologies themselves and the impact these have had on design practice, manufacturing production and the consumption of design.
The ethos of the MA/MSc 3DDD pathway is to enable professional 3D designers to enter into practice at the forefront of technology having an understanding of how a range of 3D software packages can be combined and manipulated to serve different purposes. In this way, it is expected that the conventional resource boundaries potentially limiting 3D designers will be tested and reformed to allow more innovative and creative design processes to be employed. Graduates with degrees in three-dimensional design, including Product Design, Architecture, 3D Games Design, Animation, etc., can explore the impact of emerging technologies on the design process and the production of objects or spaces. Taught over 45 weeks the course covers advanced animation, generative 3D modelling and real-time graphics, complex forms will be visualised, simulated and tested on screen.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
