HND Creative Media Production (Visual Effects)

The HND Creative Media Production (Visual Effects) course offers students a project-based learning experience with a key focus on practical assignments.

The course is structured around industry focused assignments and has a mixture of both team-based projects and solo projects with the end goal of creating an exciting and rich portfolio to take to professional interviews upon graduation. The course will focus on creating high quality visual effects and 3D models that can be used across a wide range of disciplines such as video games and films.

The course offers the opportunity to collaborate with other students across the Creative Media Production department, meaning that students can work together with Motion Graphics, Games Development and Sound Media students on group projects to simulate an industry focused pipeline.

All our creative media workshops and classrooms are equipped with some top of the range industry standard equipment, allowing students to work on super-fast PC’s with RTX graphics cards, double monitor setup and a range of other hardware such as VR equipment drawing tablets and 4K televisions so you can follow lectures in crisp and clear detail. The Creative Media department also has access to a state-of-the-art render farm and our own private network meaning downloads are super-fast and software updates are instantaneous meaning you are never behind with the software available to you.
