|Government help is available|
This is very good news indeed for students who would like to do one of our master's degrees in VFX production and Game art, and VFX (compositing) - excellent degrees which are producing superb work.
The government-backed loans, worth up to £10,000, are available from 2016-17 and will benefit students seeking to study at post-graduate level. If you’re studying for two or more academic years, you’ll get up to £5,000 in your first year and the rest in your second year.
