consider studying at Bournemouth University:
BU Graduate employment rates are consistently high at over 93% and BU has more students on a
work placement than any other university in Great Britain.

Bournemouth University’s Faculty of Media and Communication is designated as the only

Computer Animation (NCCA) whose graduates now work for major companies in the
entertainment industry and have been involved in major films such as Gravity, Harry Potter and

English language requirements for the majority of our taught Master’s courses are a minimum of
IELTS (Academic) 6.0 or equivalent, although for some courses the grades required may be
higher. The English language requirement for entry onto a research degree is normally a
minimum of IELTS (Academic) 6.5.

The Bournemouth University International College offers a range of elementary programs which

option of a January start to give you as much elasticity as possible.
