MA Animation (online) will provide you with the latest knowledge and approaches to build your animation, design, and creative direction skills. Through a journey of experimentation, you’ll explore animation techniques and digital technologies to help you develop your own tone of voice, and have the support and freedom to specialise in your chosen direction. You’ll also join an inclusive online community that promotes cultural and international connections between members who share your interest in animation. Throughout your studies, you’ll engage in academic discussions, develop critical thinking skills, and communicate sophisticated concepts around political, ethical and social issues.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    An applicant will normally be considered for admission if they have achieved an educational level equivalent to an honours degree in either animation, illustration, visual communication, graphic design or closely related subject, and present a portfolio of moving-image work. However, we do not exclude candidates who have graduated from other less strongly aligned disciplines.

    This educational level may be demonstrated by:

    • Honours degree (named above);
    • Possession of equivalent qualifications;
    • Prior experiential learning, the outcome of which can be demonstrated to be equivalent to formal qualifications otherwise required;
    • Or a combination of formal qualifications and experiential learning which, taken together, can be demonstrated to be equivalent to formal qualifications otherwise required.
      Test Scores:
      • International English Language Testing System (academic or immigration)
      Additional Admission Requirements:
      • Statement of Research Interests
