Overview

Challenge your audio-visual practice and strive for originality through experimentation with concepts, issues and materials relating to moving image and/or sound design.

Collaborate

As a postgraduate student at NUA, you’ll join a community of practitioners and researchers with diverse specialisms, giving you valuable opportunities to work collaboratively as well as individually.

Through intensive study and comprehensive technical workshops, you’ll develop the practical and conceptual skills required to create original and innovative work to exacting professional standards.

Specialise

Depending on your specialism, you’ll have the chance to engage with a wide range of audio-visual methods. These include 2D Digital; CGI and stop-motion animation film and moving image production; motion graphics; scripting and narrative; pre-production and post-production skills and techniques; sound design.

However you choose to shape your study, you’ll graduate with a deeper understanding of your own practice and a broader appreciation of how to apply your skillset in a variety of professional settings.
