UNIVERSAL ARTS SCHOOL
Spain's Best Animation School
15# Among The Top Animation Schools In The World
Founded in 1994, as a Center specialized in CGI—Computer Generated Images- (Infographics, 3D Animation, Video Games, Cinema, Advertising, and Special Effects) and Digital Image (Graphic Design, Post-Production, Viral Video, Short Film, Fashion Films and Web ). With more than 3 million hours of training, our methodology, a pioneer at the international level, allows us to find work in the most important top studios on the planet.
There was no Internet or video tutorials or PDFs, we wrote books and 3D software manuals for Editorial ANAYA. We formed the crudest virtual polygons in archaic computers. We taught the most primitive techniques of Simulation, Animation, and FX. It was the beginning of the 90s.
We could say that there are people who have great professional or personal success despite the type of training received. This means that we all have at our disposal a “click” that we can click whenever we want. The authentic formation must be based on producing an atmosphere in which the person awakens his inner self. There must be a climate of freedom of expression and confidence. Once one connects, learning can take off.
It's about learning an art and a profession, a whole. At present, there is a new revolution in knowledge and intelligence. We take into account concepts such as Emotional Intelligence, 9 Multiple Intelligences, Social Intelligence, Synesthesia, Neurolinguistic Programming, Lateral Thinking, etc. Now it is known that in order to learn, it is necessary to open several simultaneous transversal and connective paths where the person feels that he uses all his abilities, not only the cognitive ones.
Awards and mentions
Winning an award can be difficult due to the quantity and quality of many works submitted to different national and international competitions and festivals. The important thing is to promote your work by all available means, where companies are usually looking, as well as the professional market itself. Promotion is fundamental to connect with the labor world, with the real job exchange, and you can also observe the current trends of the Digital World and its most successful lines of work. The Projects are always designed for someone to see them, for their own diffusion, to move your work means to move your professional profile of the candidate, where 80% of the world's job offers are not published anywhere. You have to be in the real hiring channel.
We have been referenced by the American Institution ANIMATION CAREER REVIEW as one of the 100 best International Schools, ranking 15th in the world.

Visas for foreigners
If you are a foreign student, we will help you with the VISA. You only have to e-mail us about the paperwork for processing. In each country, it works similarly, although with some differences. The most interesting thing is that you approach the embassy or consulate in your country of origin and ask for the paperwork you need.
In general, most students can stay in Spain up to 90 days without a visa, although there are some countries with which it is necessary to process it regardless of the length of the stay in Spain.
A student visa is required for studies in Spain when these are longer than 90 days.
A student visa is required for people coming from certain countries, regardless of the days that will happen in Spain.
The requirements, procedures, and duration vary from one country to another. That is why it is important to inform yourself beforehand at the nearest Spanish Embassy or Consulate. It is also necessary that you make sure you have all the necessary information for your particular situation. These would be the steps to follow:
- Go to the Spanish Embassy or Consulate in the country of origin. They will provide you with all the information about the requirements for applying and obtaining the student visa. It is critical to contact the Embassy at least 60 days before the scheduled start date because there is a certain time to process visa applications.
- Request the necessary documents, newsletters, and forms.
- Enroll in the Course or Master of your choice.
Once the registration is made, you request via e-mail a Certificate of Registration to obtain the student visa and its presentation at the Embassy or Consulate.
