Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.
Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.
Why study Film FX?
It’s pretty basic. Being able to create stunning visual effects for the film industry is just really cool. Over the last few decades, improvements in Film FX have taken us from crude and almost comical CGI, to scenes more spectacular and real than anything in actual reality.
Between home viewing and the box office, the global film industry is worth nearly £150 billion a year, and creates an endless demand for creative and technical talent. And the need for talented FX artists is only going up as the scale and ambition of the biggest blockbusters continues to grow.
Studying Film FX and the University of Bolton’s Centre for Film FX will give you all the skills and knowledge to graduate as a proficient special or visual effects professional.
So the million dollar question, why study at the University of Bolton?
Simple. Our students are some of the happiest in the country because at Bolton we are proud to put our students and their needs first. Not forgetting the incredible scene in Greater Manchester and our brilliant student union, students love to learn at Bolton because we teach hands-on courses designed to build you a career that you’ll enjoy.
