As an accredited Autodesk Training Centre, The Animation School (formerly UCAA) specialises in animation education like no other institution. Specialising in a 3 year course structured to prepare graduates with the skills needed to enter the animation industry.


As the hub of the creative industry on the continent, Cape Town hosts the internationally acclaimed The Animation School whose intensive tertiary courses trains both local and international students in computer graphics and animation to award-winning industry standards.

Placing specific emphasis on practical production skills and techniques, The Animation School's 3-year course on either a full time and part time basis are a fine balance, combining hands-on classes, movement exercises and individual and group projects in full collaboration with commercially successful artists and studios. The aim of each course is to develop, expose and hone each student's artistic talent to a level of refinement expected by a highly selective and demanding industry.

The Animation School is now considered the leading resource for the training and development of 3D Animation artists in Southern Africa.
