BA Animation is a multi-disciplinary programme that embraces all aspects of animated film making. If you're an aspiring animator, BA Animation will help you develop your production skills, ensuring you gain the experience you need to work in today's highly competitive and exciting animation industry.

At Middlesex, we passionately believe in the importance of formal and conceptual experimentation as a means to developing innovative approaches to animation. The work our students complete on this course is both varied and distinctive, thanks to the unique and exceptional learning experience we offer. You are encouraged to develop your own vision as an artist, animator, designer and director, whilst equipping yourself with all the essential skills and knowledge needed to establish yourself as an animation professional. In all areas of animation, you will be taught by award-winning animators in outstanding animation facilities.

Since the early 1980s, graduates of the Animation department at Middlesex University have gone on to become some of the biggest names in UK animation. Alumni include Joanna Quinn, who has twice been nominated for an Academy Award, and BAFTA winning Neville Astley, co-creator of the popular children's series Peppa Pig.
