This is one of the most popular animation programs in Victoria, where you’ll become a specialist in animation and interactive media design including:
- animation (2D and 3D)
- motion graphics
- special effects
- interactive media.
This program looks at animation in all its forms, from the animated character to motion graphics across linear and interactive environments. Presented in a creative and supportive environment, the program focuses on intellectual investigation and conceptual development.
Upon graduating, you will demonstrate aesthetic and intellectual maturity and strong technical abilities within design, media and art disciplines.
Students and staff enjoy wide national and international acknowledgement and exhibit in festivals and conferences such as Siggraph, MIAF, LIAF, MILIA and Annecy.
Through a successful historic culture of animation at RMIT all staff are practising artists, designers and industry practitioners. They are experienced educators actively engaged in research in their areas of expertise.
This program has a selection task.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
In this program there is a strong focus of ’learning by doing’, even in theory subjects. Your study will take place in studios and workshops and includes a guest lecture series from staff with an industry background.
A major component of the program is studio practice. This will engage you in learning about animation and interactive media via an immersion into the discipline, its methods and practices through set projects and briefs.
You will be assessed through presentations, digital submission and peer-reviewed work. Over the 3 years you will work towards the completion of an industry ready folio of work including a major production.
We do not have a formal internship course, however work placement and internships are possible through the studio courses.
All programs are delivered in English. You will have access to online and digital resources through the myRMIT student portal.
This program replicates work found in real-world industry studios. Assigned tasks simulate industry-based work practices. Previous students have found work placements with animation/media agencies such as LucasArts, Viska Toons and Iloura as a result of program industry connections.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
