Upon completion of the Animation Design course in Zwolle, you will have the title Bachelor of Arts and can become an independent animator or work at an agency.
The number of studios for media design and animation is growing. Animation designers can establish themselves as freelance animators or begin work for an organisation in the media, entertainment or gaming industry, but also in creative business services. This includes design agencies, communication agencies, marketing consultancies, advertising agencies, internet companies, film producers, audio-visual/animation film producers, architecture agencies, publishers, broadcasters, media producers, or in the public sector.
Most alumni work as freelance animators or start a studio with other individuals. One of the services we offer graduates is starter guidance, which is advice for setting up your own company.
After graduation, you can continue your studies by taking a Master’s course. In the Netherlands, this could be at AKV/St. Joost, for example. There are many international opportunities, such as in Belgium, at LUCA/Brussel or KASK/Gent. An overview of international Master’s courses can be found at the School Database of the Animation World Network (AWN).
