"I loved the opportunity to study an art form, and work collaboratively with tutors and classmates. The ability to work as part of a team is crucial in this industry, so that aspect of the course was really valuable."

- Nixon Garcia, 2D animator

It’s such a positive and enthusiastic environment to learn in. For the first time in my life, I am meeting likeminded people who are just as passionate about creating as I am, which has just been amazing!

- Cayleen Bester, current student

"I really enjoyed the tutors, the friends I made, and all the industry big wigs we had the chance to meet! Learning from people who have worked in the industry is great."
