Good to see your question @Ashok_Khurana on Animation.

I think it will good to explain briefly about animation as career first:

Animation is an exciting medium consisting of images and objects embedded to appear as moving pictures. As per traditional animation, images are drawn or painted manually on transparent celluloid sheets to be photographed and displayed on film.

The fundamentals of visual communication, Iconography, Image processing tools, Computer painting, Storyboarding techniques, creating artwork are all included in animation.

now to answer your question - taking non-medical is not mandatory. Students of any stream (Science, Arts, Commerce, Humanities, etc.) from any recognised board of education such as CBSE, IB, ICSE or their equivalent can pursue career in animation.

Institutes/Universities offering courses / certificates / degrees in animation:

  1. National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
  2. National Institute of Film and Fine Arts, Kolkata, West Bengal.
  3. St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata, West Bengal.
  4. M G R Government Film and Television Training, Institute, Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
