Animation College was established in 1989 and has built a solid reputation since then as New Zealand’s character animation specialists.
Animation College is a category 1 provider and is the ONLY college in NZ to offer degree and diploma level courses specialising in 2D & 3D animation.
We stay in very close contact with the animation industry, so not only are we up to speed with the latest animation trends and technologies, we’re constantly talking to the people and businesses that could be your employer one day.
Our curriculum emphasises true character animation. No matter whether you chose to specialise in 2D or 3D, the principles of great animation remain the same.
At Animation College you’ll learn how to create characters that convey real emotions, mimic life, and evoke empathy in the viewer. You’ll also learn to tell stories that inspire, influence and entertain. Once learned, you’ll have those skills for life and will find that they are transferable to any software, medium, or technology you will encounter in the industry today or in years to come.
It’s this skill-base that makes our graduates unique and in demand locally and internationally across a wide range of disciplines, including: animation, illustration, design, gaming, app design, advertising, film and graphic novels or comic books.
If you have a passion for animation, you’ll love the challenges and opportunities we can offer to expand your creative potential.
