About the admission process

The admission process has 5 total phases

  • Form: First of all you would have to fill out this form online to officially start your process
  • Level test: We will evaluate your current level through a portfolio review or specific test to be specified according to the selected training.
  • Admission interview: We want to know what are your motivations and professional objectives that you want to achieve with this training, and thus decide if this is the right training for you.
  • Final resolution: The Admissions Committee will evaluate your complete profile and make a decision on whether you are admitted to the training.
  • Enrollment: Once you know if you have been admitted to the training, your enrollment is formalized and your place will be saved.

In addition to this process, you can also apply for one of our partial scholarships.

The admission process is open until the places in each call are exhausted, so if you have everything clear you could start it right away. Our recommendation is always to start the admission process as soon as possible to ensure that there are still places available.

Same if you are looking to apply to one of our partial scholarships. Keep in mind that the scholarships run out faster than the places, so if you are looking to obtain one of them it will always be better to start your process as soon as possible.
It is not a requirement that you have previous related training to take our training, although during the admission process it will be evaluated if you have sufficient knowledge at a practical level to be able to carry out the training. You may have acquired this knowledge with official training or self-taught.
The main thing we look for in our students is that they have the skills, aptitudes and attitudes necessary to be able to carry out the program. This ranges from having a previous level in the chosen area, to a very marked professional aspiration. In other words, we are looking for students for whom this is not a hobby, but who want to dedicate themselves to this at a professional level.

In the event that you are not very sure if you have the necessary level to carry out the training, you can contact one of our personal advisors so that they can carry out a prior evaluation of your profile, without any type of cost or commitment.
The face-to-face classes last 12 hours a week, and in the case of the online modality this load is slightly reduced because the teachers clean and edit the content so that you have the necessary material. In addition to this, we recommend spending at least the same number of hours a week to practice what you have learned and do the weekly tasks.

Keep in mind that, as it is a totally practical training, all the additional hours that you dedicate to working will be to your benefit since they will be reflected in better deliveries and a better portfolio.
In case you have doubts about which training to choose, don't worry, we are here to help and advise you. Request information on the training that, a priori, you think may be the one that best suits you, and when speaking with your personal advisor you can raise your doubts so that we can advise you on the training that best suits you based on your objectives current professionals and skills.

About the scholarships

At UNIVERSAL ARTS SCHOOL we offer two types of partial scholarships:
  • Talent Scholarship: It is awarded based on the student's talent in one of our four fields: Animation, Film, Videogames, or Illustration. In order for a student to be considered for this scholarship, they must demonstrate their passion for their chosen field through examples of work completed.
  • Study Assistance Scholarship: Granted based on academic merit and/or financial need. Students who apply for this scholarship must submit official academic records from the schools they have previously attended, and/or family economic reports.
Each student can apply to any of them, or to both. Every student can get one of them.
Our scholarships are available to be applied for by any student who is in the admission process for any of the UNIVERSAL ARTS SCHOOL courses.
The process can be started at any time from the start of the admission process until the start of classes.

Our recommendation is to start at the same time as the admission process. In this way, both procedures will be resolved at the same time, and the student will be able to enroll knowing exactly what the cost of their training will be.
The scholarships are attached to the economic conditions in force at the time of starting the process.

If you are already a student and have financial conditions other than those currently in force, you could apply for one of the scholarships, but your conditions would be adapted to the current ones.

Universal Arts School students finish their studies with a high level because it is highly specialized, which means that they get high-profile positions in the studios and production companies of their choice.

Keep in mind that training is always a maximum of 20%. The remaining 80% depends on the effort and dedication of each student: The more effort you make during your studies, the better work you will do. And those works translate into a better portfolio, which is what they want to see in the studios to see what you know how to do and what you can contribute to their projects.

We guarantee that with our 20% you can reach 100% of your maximum creative potential.
