The Bachelor of Design in Animation gives students with a passion for visual arts, drawing and storytelling the knowledge and hands-on experience required to create animation work that stands out in a global industry.

Graduates from this degree are image-makers, critical thinkers and storytellers in equal measure. They are equipped to be industry leaders with an ability to develop, pitch and defend ideas, creating original content for TV, film, advertising and other media.

Students learn how to observe the world around them, drawing directly from life to gain inspiration for characters and stories. They discover how to think creatively and develop ideas through multiple stages, focusing on character development, narrative and performance. They also learn fundamental 2D and 3D animation skills to bring their stories to life.

At UTS, students also benefit from outstanding industry connections. Across the degree, students have the opportunity to work with live projects, such as VIVID, BEAMS Festival or collaborations with the Australia Piano Quartet. UTS also has strong relationships with leading industry players such as Flying Bark Productions and Animal Logic.

The academic team understands that teamwork is at the heart of the animation industry. A studio-led approach creates a high-intensity environment where students learn how to work with their peers in a professional and collaborative atmosphere.

This industry-focused course opens up animation careers in film, television and multimedia. Career options include director, animator, scriptwriter, concept artist, character designer, storyboard artist, producer, modeller, rigger, VFX artist, editor and compositor.
