Not sure if this will help or not, but I can give you my own experience of applying for Bournemouth.

I did the MA in Animation in 2003/4. My first degree was in 3D Design specializing in Product Design. I then worked for twelve years as a graphic and web designer. I did a part time course in multimedia (an HNC) just for something to do and then applied for Bournemouth a year later. My portfolio contained elements of graphic design, web interfaces and a limited amount of animation. I had no experience of the software the course used (at the time it was Softimage XSi) but I had used 3D Studio Max a bit. I think it was probably my sketch books and possibly the amount of work experience I had that got me a place on the course. One of the lecturers just looked at my sketch books, didn't even look at my portfolio or show reel!

On the Animation MA they had a very broad mix of students, computer scientists who were great technically but didn't draw, artists who did draw but weren't great with the computers. It might seem oddly diverse, but it did work. I loved my time there and got such a lot out of it. Some of the lecturers are still there (Saf, Steve Harper, Steve Bell - I think). It's a chance to develop your own methodology and work, you rarely get that in the workplace to the same degree.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do and make sure you enjoy it. Hope that might help a bit.
