We are thrilled to be listed amongst the 2017 Top 100 International Animation Schools in the Animation Career Review. Animation Career Review is a source for aspiring animation, design, and gaming professionals seeking info on training programs, schools and colleges, software and technology, career profiles, profiles of the leading industry firms, and more. Moreover, we are the only school from Amsterdam that made it on the list!

The criteria for this list includes the following, in no particular order:

  • Overall quality of program including technology and facilities available to students.
  • Consistency and quality of student and graduate animation works. 
  • Geographic advantages derived from the school being located near animation employment hotspots.
  • Reputation of program within the industry.
  • A school can have online classes, but must not be online only. We will publish a separate rankings for online animation schools.
  • Tuition and overall cost of attendance, while taken into consideration, are not a major influence in this ranking.
