Computer animation is probably the most successful application of digital technology in the creative arts. It complements the work of traditional animators by providing an exciting, flexible medium for undertaking more ambitious and imaginative animated films. It has revolutionised the world of film special effects and has created a totally new leisure activity - computer games, which at a global level is a billion-dollar industry. Computer animation is seen in television productions, films, animated feature films, computer games, training videos, scientific visualisation, flight simulation, virtual environments, the Internet, and interactive media applications. All of these sectors offer exciting and rewarding career prospects, which can be accessed by anyone with the appropriate skills.
We encourage the students to build a critical framework to work creatively within, so they may take those skills they have gained into the world of computer animation. We do this by:
* Creating a professional studio environment
* Teaching computer graphic fundamentals, leading to a better grasp of the subject matter, and ultimately the transferable skills required to pursue your career path
* Teaching best practice and techniques found in industry
* Mentoring and tutorials
* Providing each student with their own workstation

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.
