Games, Animation and Visual Effects

Our ethos is to help you immerse yourself in these areas, and to encourage you to make your own contribution towards advancing them.

There’s never been a better time to develop and utilise your creative talents. With today’s technology, we can visualise impossible events and build worlds that bring our imagination to life.

We can interact with fantastic environments that challenge us and connect us to global communities.

Art, science, creativity and technology are all meeting head on, and this is having a profound impact on the way that we make sense of the world around us.
