Think Tank Training Centre

Introduction

Founded in 2005, Think Tank Training Centre is dedicated to providing artists with a specialized, career-focused Computer Graphics (CG) education that primes them for an exciting career in VFX, Game Art, and Animation.

Consistently ranked as one of the top schools for CG Art, Think Tank students learn directly from working professionals, engage with the latest software, build invaluable studio connections, and develop an industry-ready portfolio.

Students can choose between studying fully Online or through Think Tank’s innovative Hybrid model. By studying Hybrid, students master both the fundamentals and advanced techniques of 3D Art remotely before heading to the Think Tank Campus in Vancouver, Canada, for an immersive, portfolio-focused final term.

While there are no entrance scholarships available, students are given opportunities to earn merit-based bursaries throughout their program. Personalized payment plans and financial aid counseling (Canadian applicants) are also available. Connect with a member of our Admissions Team today!
