Industry context

The British film industry is hungry for new talent and our Visual Effects course is designed to feed it with highly-skilled graduates of the required professional standard. Since the Harry Potter boom in the early 2000s, alongside a recent influx of new releases from studios, such as Disney and Marvel, the Film and VFX industry is expanding at an exponential rate. This has firmly established the UK as a leading country for high-quality Visual Effects work and created an unprecedented demand for fresh, highly- trained graduate talent from the UK education system.
