Animation, Games & Screenwriting accreditation

Creative Skillset Tick logoCreative Skillset works with the animation, film and computer games industries to accredit degree courses that provide the best preparation for students to enter the industry.

Accredited courses bear the Creative Skillset Tick, a quality mark for the industry, an indication of quality assurance of the very best in training and education.

The aim of the accreditation scheme is to facilitate strong links between higher education institutions, the animation industry and Creative Skillset to ensure that:

  • the courses remain relevant to the needs of the industry;
  • the students develop the skills and knowledge the industry requires;
  • and employers can rely on graduates of accredited courses to perform at the standard they expect.

Accreditation is awarded initially for six years.

If you are applying for accreditation of postgraduate animation and games courses or a games design course, you'll need to make an application for universal accreditation.
