Escape Studios climbs international rankings for Animation

In the 2020 Animation School Rankings, Escape Studios has moved up the listings. Out of 200 global institutions, Animation Career Review have ranked Escape:

Alexander Williams, Head of Animation, said: "I'm delighted that all the hard work from our staff and students over the past few years has paid off, and the very high quality of our students' work is getting the recognition it deserves. Even more remarkable is that the course has only had one cohort of graduates so far, so this really is a great achievement.”

These are the eighth annual international rankings for animation, with almost 200 schools with animation programs assessed in the 2020 rankings. The criteria used for the international animation rankings comprises:

  • Academic reputation
  • Admission selectivity
  • Depth and breadth of the program
  • Value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness
  • Employment data
