In 2015, CG Spectrum gave away $500,000 worth of scholarships for our industry-mentored online diplomas to the best young artists in the country.
Scholars were mentored in their chosen pathways by the best in the industry, including pros from EA, Ubisoft, Weta, Dreamworks, Iloura and more.
This year, we're opening the programme to international applicants, and including our newest courses - Concept Art & Game Programming. Register your interest now and we'll send you more information on applying.
CG Spectrum diplomas have been built by mentors in studios like Framestore and Ubisoft, and with endorsement from software partners including Foundry (Nuke, MARI) and SideFX (Houdini). Our students receive individual instruction from industry mentors, and benefit from close partnerships with local and overseas studios to secure them jobs on graduation.
A fully paid one-year diploma or advanced diploma Scholarship will be offered to students with exceptional portfolios for:
Scholars from our 2015 season have already gone on to opportunities with the studios behind Game of Thrones, Mad Max, Dr Strange and more, with close to half offered places before graduating. Our alumni have worked on Fantastic Beasts, the Assassin's Creed series and more.
In October, we began portfolio reviews with studios to showcase the work of graduating students, as well as provide them constructive feedback straight from industry supervisors. The result was three students being offered contracts by Iloura VFX, who worked most recently on Ghostbusters.
Close industry ties is what set CG Spectrum apart. We're currently in talks with game & VFX studios to continue opening up more opportunities for our students.
"It's so important to be mentored by an actual industry professional"
Believe me, you can really notice the difference in terms of quality of advice when you learn from an industry professional. With my CG Spectrum mentor, not only were we talking about my work and how to make it better, but also about the industry in general. How to get a job, build a demo reel and more!

“CG Spectrum is so different than any other school”
"The mentors are always there to help and the live chats and forum help you get to know your students. Every step of the way you’re growing into a wonderful community. For me the quality of education I’ve received at CG Spectrum is the best I’ve gotten from Australian schools so far."
