Creative skillset

Creative skillset certification is awarded in recognition of the highest level of education and facilities for the creative industries. It will inform prospective employers an indication that the candidates who have taken our course have been professionally trained and are ready to take their job in the creative industries successfully.


Job opportunities include digital animation companies, games, special effects companies for TV and film. Our students work with or as freelancers for the world's most well-known production and post-production companies.

Teaching method

The course uses mixed teaching techniques, but most of the time is focused on real projects, software and art based on lectures and workshops.

The digital animation courses are evaluated through project work both individually and in groups; there is also a contextual element that requires writing, and professional presentations and juries often occur.


Internships are a valuable way to establish contacts in the marketplace and understand the commercial reality of the chosen discipline.

This means students working in various sectors of the creative industries: in graphic, product or interior design consultancies; working as resident artists in galleries; producing objects and scenarios for the TV and film industry; accompanying teachers in education; working with commercial photographers to students working in the music industry.
