Now in their 7th year, Animation Career Review considered 167 schools across the globe before finalising their rankings.
We're proud to be placed in the top 25 internationally, in the top 10 European Schools, and in the top 5 in the UK.
It's especially rewarding to be included in these lists when we don't actually have any animation graduates yet.
Our undergraduate animation courses only began in September 2016, and our first graduates will be awarded their degrees this summer. But the quality of work done by our students already speaks for itself.
Last year we ranked in the top 100 schools internationally, so we're delighted to have leap-frogged into the top 25.

How does Animation Career Review rank schools? You can find their ranking criteria here: https://www.animationcareerreview.com/background-info-and-criteria-college-rankings
Animation Career Review separates schools into two categories: Those with formal degree programs (4 year degree or equivalent) and those that offer professional career training in the form of a diploma, certificate, or other program that is completed in less time than the typical 4 year degree.
Many ways to study animation
In the case of Escape Studios, of course, we do both. You can study animation with us at undergraduate or post-graduate level. We also offer short courses, an Advanced Animation course, and part-time evening classes at both beginner and intermediate level, and classes in Toonboom Harmony, Character Design, Concept Art, Character Creation, Rigging, Storyboarding and Producing animation. Want to learn animation? We've got a course for you.
