What’s the English Proficiency Requirement?
For students whose first language is not English, below are the minimum scores required from any one of the following tests in English proficiency. We recommend you contact us to discuss language requirements.
What if I have no examples of my work?
If you currently have no examples of your artwork, you might consider taking some time to create a portfolio before you apply. If you feel this is not an option for you at this time, you can also write an essay reflecting your reasons for wanting to explore this exciting medium. Send us a message and we can help you get your portfolio kick-started.
Remember, there is more to computer graphics than fine art… some of the most influential members of the CG community can barely draw a stick-man!
What should I include in my portfolio for submission?
What we’re trying to determine is your level of aptitude. Don’t let your lack of drawing skill stop you from applying. Show us your ideas and creations in another medium. Paint, sculpture, photographs, short films, 2D and 3D images and models. It all counts when it comes to evaluating your portfolio. Include 5 to 10 examples that show us what you can do. Animations in any medium are great.
Drawings, paintings, and photographs should be 8.5″ x 11″ photocopies or scanned jpgs, colour or black and white. Save the planet and send us only a link to your online portfolio or Google Drive. Remember if you send a hard copy it will not be returned!
What software do you use?
We teach software like Maya, Nuke, ZBrush, Mudbox, Mari, Flash, Photoshop, Substance Designer, Substance Painter, Marvelous Designer, UV Layout, Unreal 4, TopoGun, and a host of peripheral programs.
When do the semesters start and how long is each one?
The program starts on every fall and it‘s a 18 months program.
Can I start without any knowledge of 3D?
Yes, it is not necessary to have any prior training. Most people know a little Photoshop or a similar program, but it’s not essential. We start with the basics and take you to the next level.
