Escape Studios

Escape Studios has been at the forefront of creative education since 2002, supplying the industry with studio-ready talent.We offer a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses in Visual Effects (VFX), Game Art, Animation and Motion Graphics and other specialist disciplines.



Escape Studios was founded in 2002 to help bridge the gap between education and industry and provide the industry with tomorrow's digital artists.


It’s rare and exciting to have the opportunity to build a new higher education institution, finding innovative approaches to advancing the student experience through technology, collaboration and workplace practice. Academic excellence and professional relevance underpin everything that we do here – none of our programmes are just degrees. All staff are fully involved in this pioneering journey.


Our academics are primarily tuition focused but many have a passion for research and regularly undertake research projects in collaboration with external organisations, established universities, as well as our own students.


Our Escape Studios alumni, dubbed Escapees, have worked on big titles such as Avengers: Endgame, No Time To Die and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Some have started their own studio, worked on award-winning titles or joined industry giants including PlayStation, Industrial Light & Magic or Aardman Animation.
