  6. Hello   I thought you might like to see some of our students work from the University of Hertfordshire. We are located in Hatfield, 20 minutes by train from central London, Kings Cross international station.   BA (Hons) - 3D Games Art & Design, BA (Hons) BA (Hons) - Visual-effects BA (Hons) - 2D Animation and Character for Digital Media BA (Hons) - 3D Digital Animation and Modelling   MA - Games Art MA - Animation    We can also offer PhD studies    Here is our website - www.uhanimation.co.uk   Here is our Showreel - 2012 (new version coming soon) https://vimeo.com/55198000   This is our home, The Film Music and Media Building, the animation courses have the middle floor.   An article in 3Dworld magazine rating us as one of the best courses in the world to study 3D     Any questions then PM me, Neil Gallagher, Programme Leader, BA & MA 3D Animation and Games Art   The University Of Hertfordshire has received full Skillset accreditation for all teh animation games art courses - Welcome to Creative Skillset - Skillset     To say that we are proud of this achievement is an understatement. To gain such a high recognition for all of our programmes is down to the hard work and dedication of the Staff, the enthusiasm and quality of our Students, and the support of our amazing Alumni.   If you would like to talk to our students in person then you can post here on our student forum. www.3dhit.co.uk   Social sites are run by UH Alimni with some tutor input:   You Tube- http://www.youtube.com/user/uhanimation   Vimeo - http://www.vimeo.com/uhanimation   Twitter - http://twitter.com/#!/uhanimation   Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/uhanimation   The Games Art course has a strong emphasis on the study of software tools and teaches all the cutting edge software you need to get into the industry: Maya, 3DSMax, Zbrush, Mudbox, Photoshop and many more and uses both the Unreal engine and the Crysis engine to enable students to gain access to all the professional tools needed in the industry.   The course explores digital modelling of characters and environments, and helps students to develop animation as well as shader techniques and level creation. You will be taught to create optimised geometry and textures and apply them to game engines, gaining an understanding of the technological restrictions of realtime 3D graphics. Also high to low resolution surface transfer modelling is taught as well as producing high resolution models for promotional material.   The main emphasis of the course is on the student becoming a “Games Artist” so a full day of study during the duration of the course has been allocated to life drawing and clay modelling to help develop a rounded portfolio as well as having live visits from Scott Eaton and Jeni Fairey from Madame Tussauds. So even if you start from a more technical back ground you will be taught the fundamentals of art, composition, colour theory and much more which are essential to gaining employment in the Games Industry.   The first year is like a foundation course where you have a taster of all the BA digital animation courses which are 3D, VFX, 2D and Games Art before choosing your specialization.   We have many open days during the year so feel free to come and look around our state of the art University that teaches twenty seven thousand students per year, has a £40 million night club and dining area, swimming pool, climbing wall, gym and over a thousand societies waiting for you to join - so if you like canoeing, walking, going to the cinema or playing the didgeridoo, there is always a club for you.   The University of Hertfordshire is 20 minutes by train from London’s “Kings Cross Station” and three stops on the underground to the Buzzing Soho industry where Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has its headquarters. By car it’s just off the A1 and 20 minutes drive from the M25   http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl   Quotes from the Industry about the University of Hertfordshire Courses.   Paul Gaboury 3D Product Development Manager Pixologic Inc   "The student work coming out of University of Hertfordshire is studio ready.
