BA Animation Graduate Careers

The Animation Course at Westminster began in 2002 with the aim of fostering and developing multidisciplinary transferrable skills, meaning that graduates are able to turn their hand to a very broad range of tasks.

So far, over 350 students have undertaken the course, and many have gone on to careers in a very wide variety of related industries.
