    Student Showcase

     Our very first year of our Escape Studios Undergraduate courses has come to an end….but what a final show it was.

    What have our students been up to? Our students have spent this year working on common modules in Games, Computer Animation and Visual Effects. Their first term included learning soft skills to so they gain all round skills needed in the creative industry.
