Las Thursday was Internation Art Day: in this context, the University of Luxembourg Competence Centre announced that it offers a Bachelor’s degree in Animation for students keen on animation design, be it for film and video production or game design. 

This unique study programme in Luxembourg is offered in collaboration with the University and gives access to a full degree, validating all the skills necessary for entering the animation design industry.

Part of the Competence Centre’s mission is to develop and support academic training programmes that meet the needs of the market. Having been approached by the LAM (Lycée des Arts et Métiers) to help them with the evolution of their BTS in Animation Design, the Competence Centre designed a 
downstream study programme centred on 3D skills with a strong inclination towards professional competencies. With a prior acquisition of 60 ECTS, students can apply and after two years get a bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS) delivered by the University of Luxembourg.

What makes this study programme stand out is the fact that it is the first bachelor in 3D animation in Luxembourg. The course instructors are professionals from the animation industry; thus, as a student, you get field-related expertise and an outstanding opportunity for a firsthand glimpse behind the scenes via internships and the realisation of a final project demoreel. Classes are small and bilingual (French / English). The curriculum is personalised, giving the students a high degree of autonomy and a quality level of support at any given time. 

The bachelor course is based on Belval Campus where a dedicated lab with 3D workstations is exclusively at the disposal of the students. As students of the University of Luxembourg, they can take advantage of all facilities on campus, including the Luxembourg Learning Centre.

Admissions for 2021/2022 are still open online until 30 April 2021. More information on the requirements and conditions is available on the Bachelor’s admission page at
