School of 3D Animation Scores in the 90s

Lifeway College’s School of 3D Animation Scores in the 90s!

Lifeway College has officially announced an employment rate of 95% and a successful course completion rate of 93% - a major result for students, New Zealand and the 3D industry.

Keen to make a living in the exciting and innovative world of 3D animation? Lifeway College is pushing to ensure that its students receive prime job placement and the 95% employment rate is a true mark of success. Lifeway College’s push for student employment has proven so successfully that some have even received job offers by top studios before the completion of their studies. Lifeway College makes jobs happen for students, even if that means working with studios and students to ensure job offers can be taken straight away, being creative with assignments and really making it happen!

3D animation is a highly competitive field in which some in New Zealand can struggle to find work. Lifeway College sees it as their number one priority as a tertiary provider to make certain that every one of their students receive prime job placement upon graduation from their studies.

The College’s students regularly show their best work to top global studio representatives, including Weta, Huhus, Nikoleand, Oktober and New Zealand’s top gaming company, Sidhe.

Such opportunities allow the students to be seen by the best in the business. The studio executives also offer constructive feedback on how students can improve skills and offer invaluable advice on what it takes to excel and become world class in a creative industry that likes to push the limits.

“I did not want to study at tertiary level again, but the balance between the technology, creativity and excellent job prospects made me sign up!” says a present student at Lifeway College.

The Principal, Craig Hansen says the College’s focus is on all-round success, “We have a qualification completion rate of 93%, which is over 20% higher than the average. This demonstrates that our graduates know what it takes to be successful to get a job, as nearly all of them do!”
