The Curriculum >>
At The Animation School we have concentrated on structuring a curriculum that produces animators versus just software operators. Think of it like this: knowing how to use Word Perfect on a computer doesn’t automatically make you a novelist!

Our curriculum works and it works hard. This viewpoint is supported by the consistent prizes and accolades that our students win. We concentrate on giving students a solid foundation of 3D artistic development – both on a creative and technical level. So that when it comes time for international and local employers to assess potential job candidates, The Animation School’s students stand head and shoulders above the rest.
Furthermore, our curriculum is supported by industry authorities to make sure that the education we provide meets the ever-changing requirements of the animation industry. And as a successful graduate who has finished our 3-year full time course, you will have developed and refined your artistic talent to an entry-level skills level for acceptance in the highly competitive animation industry.

Institution’s Unique Selling Points:

What makes your school any better than the others?
We make sure that our students graduate as animators and not simply software operators. Being able to use Excel software for example doesn’t automatically mean that you’re an accountant.

Small classes. Industry recognition. Instructors qualified. Our core staff faculty includes award-winning professionals who have excelled in both digital 3D and classical animation techniques. While visiting instructors and regular presentations from local and international studies, ensure that we are always up to date with industry trends and requirements of a constantly changing industry.
