Student Life

What student life is like with online classes

The School Experience Goes Online

Animation Mentor provides all the support and resources you might find in a traditional brick-and-mortar school, but without the high admission fees. Our support begins even before your first day of class, as our Admissions Team guides you through the application process.

Once you join our virtual campus and start class, we’ll be available to help with any academic or technical questions. As a student, you’ll connect with thousands of other artists in our global Animation Mentor community, all of whom are learning their craft alongside you.

Animation Mentor Community

The Animation Mentor community is tight-knit but expansive, with global connections that begin as school friendships. Our campus is full of passionate artists from all over the world, each of whom has a unique story to share. We pride ourselves on being the nicest place on the internet, where students support and encourage each other as they pursue their animation dreams. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
