Do people actually study Animation?

The Free Animation Career Consultation 1

Thinking about animation as a career is new to most South Africans. 

It’s not something many people knew even existed in the first place, let a lone studying it.

But the exciting truth is that South Africa has a growing animation industry with a number of award-winning productions and highly skilled professional animators that work closely with major global film industries and companies.

So It is very important to have a good animation education background and qualification if you want to work within this fast growing industry. 

South African Animation studios are well known globally for their high-quality work. 

& guess what? 

The artists that produce that work are mostly The Animation School graduates! 

& in 3 years that could be you. 

Imagine travelling to Paris to attend the bafta awards to be recognized for your work at a global scale?

 Our animation technology and software taught at The Animation School can make that possible. 

We also rank in the top 20 International Animation Schools by the Animation Career Review. 

Furthermore, our Digital Animation Diploma program allows our graduates to continue their post-graduate studies in animation within SA and overseas.

Does The Animation School offer a Diploma or a Degree course?

The Animation School offers a Diploma program in Digital Animation.

But why is it only a Diploma course and not a Degree? 

Well, because of the practical nature of animation studies. We train our students at The Animation School to have the technical skills necessary to be well equipped and ready to enter the marketplace.

Therefore, it is crucial to include more components of practical assignments and projects in the academic curriculum.

A Diploma program allows us to deliver more practical modules as opposed to bulking up the curriculum with theory, which is more suitable for a Degree program.

This has earned The Animation School compliments from the professional industry who love working with our graduates because “graduates from The Animation School are productive from day one!”
