To qualify for the Bachelor of Film and Television (Animation), students must complete a total of 300 credit points:
- 15 Animation discipline units (14 x 12.5 and 1 x 25 = 200 credit points)
- 4 Animation specialisation units (4 x 12.5 = 50 credit points)
- 4 Elective units from any discipline within the university (4 x 12.5 = 50 credit points)
For students who enter with exempted credits, a minimum of at least 100 credits within the discipline units is required to be completed to be eligible for an award.
The proposal of any alternative unit of study choices for students is at the discretion of the course coordinator with approval by the Faculty of Health, Arts and Design Academic Committee.
The Bachelor of Film and Television (Animation) consists of a total of 300 credit points with a 25 credit point Capstone unit in the final semester.
Students will normally be enrolled in a Recommended Study Sequence and must successfully complete a minimum of 300 credit points; 50 credit points per semester for full-time students. An optional Industry-Based Learning (IBL) year may be applied for. This takes places between Years 2 and 3 and is not credit-point bearing. IBL is not available to students holding an international student visa.
To qualify for the award, a student must complete, or have been granted an exemption for the units of study listed below. Students initially enter into the three-year bachelor program. At the end of that program students may exit with an undergraduate bachelor degree or continue with further study. Work expected outside normal timetabled contact hours, in keeping with related design courses, will usually be no less than a minimum of two for one.
Winter and Summer Terms
The Faculty of Health, Arts and Design is offering an optional six-week Winter and Summer Term allowing you to complete extra study between the standard semesters. These terms are not mandatory. However, if you wish to vary your study load you may want to consider this option.
International Study Programs - Study Abroad*
Students can apply to participate in an exchange program or a study tour program as part of their degree. Find out more about education abroad.
* Please note that international students on a student visa must study full-time as part of their visa requirements and therefore are unable to undertake this option.
Units of study are 12.5 credit points unless otherwise indicated with students normally undertaking 50 credit points per semester.
The program provides a range of opportunities within the film, television and animation industries as well as allied creative industries such as the games, web broadcasting, education and digital media areas.
