More about James
What made you choose to study at NTU?
“What made me choose NTU above all the other universities that I had visited was mostly because of how well this university works. The amount of support and creativity that both students and lecturers have within the University as well as the diverse range of courses is something you don’t see every day.”
What do you enjoy most about studying Animation?
“I can’t really pick out just one thing from my course that I enjoy the most as there is so much creativity and freedom within everything that we do in Animation. The projects are fun and challenging, the lectures are interesting and engaging plus the academic staff are so passionate about the course.”
Can you tell us about a project you have really enjoyed?
“Most of the work we do throughout the course are live projects, but the project that I have enjoyed the most was our final project of Year One. We had to create and show a zombie and robot arm interacting with one another; this was probably the most challenging project we had completed as we had to demonstrate all the skills we had learnt from the past year and apply it all to one project.”
How do you find the course staff?
“Our course lecturers and tutors are full passion for the course as well as the students' learning experience. They are always there to support you and help with anything, whether it be coursework related, guidance or personal matters.”
How do you find the facilities?
“I love the facilities that are available to us on the course. Our Animation-specific facilities include over 30 Cintiq drawing stations, TVPaint software and an Adobe Suite. We also have access to audio booths where we can record audio for our animations. The Students’ Union is a great place to relax and socialise with friends, or on your own. There are different areas and floors perfect for when you need to find a comfortable place to sit and study.”
Why would you recommend your course?
“If you’re looking to study Animation as a degree, look no further than NTU. You will not find a university with the same passion, facilities and creative freedom that we have here.”
