As a postgraduate researcher, you'll access the latest equipment and techniques in our studios and labs to drive technological advances in areas such as animation, visual effects (VFX), cross reality (XR), User Experience (UX), computer and video games, visual computing, and music technology.

Our previous postgraduate candidates have worked on projects including developing award-winning CGI films, creating ultra-realistic and immersive entertainment using virtual and augmented reality, developing ways to use digital technology to protect heritage sites, and improving the monitoring of Parkinson's disease and facial palsy – and you could work on similar projects.
