MSc Research: Digital Media, Culture, Animation

About this Handbook

This handbook combines information about the MSc by Research in Digital media and Culture and the MSc by Research in Digital Animation and is intended to provide students with basic information on the programme content, aims and objectives, teaching and assessment, support and other issues. It indicates what is expected of you, and will help you to make the most of your time on the Programme. It should be read carefully and frequently, and used in conjunction with other material provided by the University and the School (Edinburgh College of Art), especially the Code of Practice for Taught Postgraduate Programmes (also available on the Web at, the Students Association Postgrad Handbook (also known as the “Postgrad Survival Guide” available via and the Architecture General Handbook.

Note that this handbook also references pages in the Handbook for the MSc in Design and Digital Media, with which it shares a number of courses and options. These relevant pages are therefore part of this handbook for the MSc by Research in Digital media and Culture and the MSc by Research in Digital Animation.
Questions or problems should be addressed in the first instance to the Programme Director.

Note: This handbook is published by the Edinburgh College of Art to give information to candidates about the MSc/Diploma programme. This programme handbook does not supersede the University regulations, and the formal requirements for the programme are as set out in the University’s Postgraduate Study Regulations (; a copy of the Degree Programme Table entry for this programme appears in the Appendix of this document. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information in this handbook is correct at the start of the session. However, details are subject to change during the course of the year, and will then be notified to students as appropriate. The online version of this handbook will also be updated.
