Then we have something in common. As a current student at Budapest Metropolitan University, I was clearly taught that the course you choose isn't what you study, it’s what you live. Here I have the chance to build a balance between my academic and social life and I have met so many nice people in the international community.Whether if they’re locals or from the parts of the world that you didn't even hear before, you’ll always be cheerful to meet these people. Apart from liking the fact that teachers would feel like your tutors during the classes and your friends afterwards the school, it makes sense of calling this atmosphere a family. Being a student here has given me the opportunity to equip myself with all the necessary skills and knowledge to further my career anywhere in the world.

Animation is an infinitely diverse genre of motion picture art with the most intercultural opportunities of our time. From cartoons to special effects, from computer games to online interface, from art films to commercials, it offers plenty of room to improve your creativity. While learning the fundamentals of the profession, our students experience classical drawing- and puppet animation and, as a rarity, they also have the possibility to work with 35 mm film. Acquiring the necessary co-artistic fundamentals will enable them to individually develop animated creations with complex technical needs. Excellent professors, an inspiring intellectual community, and an up-to-date and stable technical background provide our graduates with the opportunity to bring the best qualities and talent out. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR YOU: 
 ...if you would like to animate your creations, and are interested in drawing, modelling, rhythms and motions. If you need help with learning how to use different computer softwares and also, if you are already experienced in digital design.

During my experience I had the opportunity to maximize my possibilities and find what I am capable of. I find lectures and seminars very interesting and well-focused on what the students have to know, generally, to be able to create, process and finish an idea. In general, teachers have great strengths and also weaknesses during the learning process of the students. Although helpfulness, pushing and encouragement to create and knowledge on the fields being taught are, for sure, the qualities of this program.” Rafa Yagüe, 
student of our Animation BA program from Spain “Animation is a fantastic opportunity for creative people to experience the joy of creation and to share it with others too. We await open, curious young people whom we can help find their own paths and voices, as there’s talent in everyone. At our major it will soon turn out what is meant for you, in what things you are the best at. This is the place for you if you are attracted to puppet or 3D animation, if you are interested in directing or simply in animation altogether. “ Éva M. Tóth DLA, PhD, habil
