This year, 199 international animation schools and universities were competing.

At the top of the rankings, both globally and in Europe, GOBELINS was rewarded for:

  • Academic reputation
  • Employment data
  • Admission selectivity
  • Depth and breadth of the program
  • Value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness

GOBELINS, which is going to celebrate its 60th anniversary, has gained international recognition.

Today, it offers a complete curriculum that meets international standards: a Bachelor of Arts degree in 3 years and the possibility of pursuing a Master of Arts degree for two years. Its animation film designer and director training program has just obtained the visa for its diploma.

A pre-preparatory animation course, a one-year 3D character animator course in partnership with CITIA in Annecy and a professional degree in audiovisual production management in partnership with the University of Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, complete this training offer.

"We are very proud to have been awarded 1st place for the 3rd year running!"

"Congratulations to our teaching teams and very talented students. This ranking rewards an expertise in storytelling and the art of character animation "à la française" that makes our school so unique. At GOBELINS, we pay particular attention to diversity and multiculturalism. I'm convinced that this enriches the films we produce, dealing with issues such as discrimination, gender, complex social issues and conflicts, the freedom of expression, and the environment, amongst others.

This recognition augments our international successes such as the 3 Annie Awards recently attributed to GOBELINS.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our partners such as NETFLIX, Guillermo del Toro and Cinepolis, as well as the many animation studios we work with."
