Open Days

Bournemouth University holds regular open days for people interested in studying animation and digital effects on the award-winning undergraduate and postgraduate courses run by the NCCA in the Faculty of Media and Communication.


During the open day you get to meet staff and students, view the Media School, where the NCCA is based, listen to course talks, discuss your UCAS application and portfolio. Tours around the faculty are run by current students.


The NCCA is regularly listed in the top 10 places to study animation worldwide in the Animation Career Review, and one of the best places to study animation in the UK and Europe.


In 2011 we were awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for the NCCA’s ‘World Class’ teaching.


If you are interested in hearing more about the NCCA please register for an open day and explore the information on the NCCA website.
