Aptech and The CEA have formed a strategic partnership to bring our Advanced Diploma programs to qualified graduates from the Aptech education brand of Arena Animation. Arena Animation students looking for an advantage over the competition now have a clear and direct path to studying in Vancouver. Arguably the best place to find opportunity and capture their first job post-graduation in our amazing industry.
Vancouver offers unparalleled opportunities for dedicated students with over 95+ VFX, Animation and Gaming studios located in the city. Industry leading studios are represented here, ILM, MPC, Sony Imageworks, Digital Domain, Image Engine, Double Negative, DHX, Animal Logic and Bardel and many more. The city also offers the perfect mix of stunning natural beauty and modern, world class infrastructure.
Another advantage the CEA has over other institutions is that graduates are eligible to apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) for up to three years. Successful applicants can remain in Canada and put their newly acquired skills to good use while working towards landing their dream job.
