View Full Version : Good School for learning Digital art in Central scotland? :3 for a beginner

08 August 2013, 12:14 PM
Okay i'm looking to get into a School to learn drawing, digital art , 3D animation the lot but my troubles are that i don't have any qualifications in that, school was quite a turbulent time for me so i really do not have anything, in terms of qualifications

I don't mind if the course is in glasgow or stirling edinburgh or around there, just i would love to be getting into all stuff in that field as mentioned, Financial wise i get support for such things due to my "disability"

Btw i'm 18 years of age if that helps with anything too :3, and as said looking to get into anything 3D animation, 2D even illustration drawing all that :3 but mainly all to involve with digital art.

so really any help or such out with this field?

If you don't have the traditional qualifications for entry to a university / art college, there is an option if you are aged over 21 (I think) which would be to look for an Access to Higher Education course. These are usually 1 year or so courses that are aimed at 'mature' applicants who may not have traditional academic entry requirements, but still wish to study. I know these are valid in England, I'm not sure about Scotland - they may well be free in Scotland due to Scotland's rather more sensible attitude to Higher Education than we have in England. Good luck :)

I recently finished doing Masters in Animation at DJCAD at University of Dundee in Scotland. I'd personally recommend the college. It may be worthwhile looking at foundation courses offered at all Uni's here as well to help you choose your specialism. and
They have really good infrastructure and in addition to the latest softwares and all equipments you'd need, they offer classes in traditional animation, life drawing classes and sculpting lessons. I found the course to be a good mix of traditional and digital and more pro computer animation and vfx compared to ECA and GSoA. Of course, it's just my opinion and based on my own research into courses in animation. Hope this helps. Good luck!
