Universal Arts School Valencia

UNIVERSAL ARTS SCHOOL is one of the Top international schools, providing specialized training in the video game and film sector. Fleeing from general training, in which students do not stand out and go unnoticed in a growing industry, our students learn in a totally practical and specialized way all the development processes of an audiovisual project, being able to become the best in their field.

Distance Learning Courses



Founded in 1994 as a center specialized in CGI, Videogames, Animation and Digital Film. Since the beginning, UNIVERSAL ARTS SCHOOL has always been concerned with offering the most hands-on and cutting-edge training to its students, updating syllabi in line with new technologies and production systems every year.


  • The UA SCHOOL evaluation methodology is completely practical. There is no theory the students have to study in order to take a theory test. In each of our programs, students learn by carrying out larger and larger projects in line with what they’re learning each week. This way, they finish their program with many projects behind them, and with a professional reel.
  • Our training is always focused on their portfolio, since it is what it’s valued in the professional industry.
  • In the final year of training, students work in a Production Environment, learning the real work-flow of a professional studio.


  • As these are completely specialized programs, our students have a professional portfolio of a high level of quality, which means that job prospects are the best in the Industry.
  • The Employment Dept. is in charge of working with students in a personalized way to check their professional goals and help them in that area, whether it’s guiding them when applying for studies, preparing them for interviews, portfolio advice depending on where they want to apply, recommendation letters, or with advice if their aim is to set up their own indie studio.
  • In their last year, students have sessions in which they learn to set up their portfolio and online presence, and manage job offers depending on their professional goals.
