Carear PathWhat will I be able to do when I graduate? Our goal is that students will be equipped with creative expertise and transferable skills so that they have the ability to choose their own paths after graduation. Our students often go on to work in the animation industry in Ireland and abroad, some start their own companies, and others become successful freelancers. Graduates sometimes shift direction into new creative fields such as book illustration or web-based content. Some go on to postgraduate programmes in film, animation, or film studies, and a number of them have become educators. The places they have gone include Boulder Media, JAM Media, Brown Bag Films, The Royal School of Art, Bournemouth University, Trinity College, WETA Workshops, Cartoon Saloon, JibJab, Limerick Institute of Technology, among many others.
