    7.3 /10

    From a very young age, I was very interested in animation and designing and that was the reason why I decided to pursue a career in animation. I found this college on the internet while going through the courses on animation. I applied to the college online and the application fee was $50.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course covers the basics of designing in the initial year. Then It gradually dives into animation and advanced designing and further into storytelling. A lot of practical knowledge about VFX and motion effects as well.

    Because it has a pretty good reputation, the teachers are all from university and most of them have PhDs. One of the many other reasons is that it?s a pretty liberal college. Each student has a right to the decision to change things in college.

    Course Curriculum :

    It's a very interesting curriculum, it?s a really good pedagogy and it's well structured. I think that this curriculum is perfect for me cause it's pretty diverse on the courses which are really interesting and enriching.

    For the program. I was studying history at another college for a year before I changed. It is also more my style of teaching. Closer to my house. Also, it is very well situated, directly in downtown Montreal.

    Internship :

    My program does not include/ require an internship. I am studying the language (German and Spanish, as well as French and English) and we only have classes that will give us credits. No internships are needed right now.
