Our courses

Visual effects (VFX), the process of creating digital effects for movies, commercials, television, games and other media, is the fastest growing sector of the UK economy. With London as its UK and international hub, the industry is worth more than £71bn in Great Britain alone.

Based in the heart of London, adjacent to the world-famous Ealing Studios, our BA (Hons) VFX degree course will enable you to create visual effects to a professional, industry-ready level. Using cutting-edge software and equipment, you'll learn to create the dramatic effects seen in Hollywood blockbusters as well as a range of more subtle enhancements.

Learn to create VFX for films, commercials, television shows, architectural visualisations and augmented reality.

Our VFX degree has been designed with input from leading effects facilities including DNeg and developed following advice and guidelines from the professional body Creative Skillset.
