At Swinburne, our animation programs will teach you to look further than just great visuals. We place an emphasis on the creative and analytical components of animation, as well as the fundamentals of on-screen work.

Through our animation courses, you’ll understand film production techniques, the storytelling process and the principles of on-screen design to create visual art that people can truly connect with.  

Our animation degrees combine the theory and techniques of film and video production, so you can bring your stories to life. Browse our courses to find detailed course information, application dates, entry requirements, fees, subjects, ATAR calculator and more.
