Why VanArts

WORLD-CLASS FACULTY
All of our Department Heads and instructors at VanArts are top industry professionals with decades of experience. They are here because of their passion for teaching and desire to help you become a creative professional they can proudly work alongside. 

SPECIALIZED, ADAPTABLE CURRICULUM
Compared to the broad general curriculum offered at many other schools, programs at VanArts are much more focused and specialized. Because of our size and strong industry connections, we can quickly adapt what we teach to ensure your education is based on the skills you need to work in your chosen field. 

SMALL CLASS SIZES
Through a small, focused classroom environment you will receive substantial one-on-one attention from your instructors. You will have your own personal workstation for the year and the close-knit collaboration with your peers and faculty will lead to lifelong friendships and partnerships. 

VANCOUVER: AN INDUSTRY HUB
Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world, and is definitely one of the most beautiful. There is no better place to study media arts, as we are a film industry hub and home to hundreds of animation, game and VFX studios and new media companies. 

AN INTERNATIONAL NETWORK
Nearly half of our student body are international students from all over the world, which expands your network in an increasingly global industry. If you wish to continue your studies after graduating from VanArts, degree pathways are available through our university partners in Canada, United States, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
