Animation film in Brussels

Academische Bachelor / Exchange Programme

When choosing the Animation Film programme taught at our campus Sint-Lukas Brussels, you'll develop a wide range of artistic, narrative and technical skills while being completely immersed in the fascinating world of animated film.


Studying abroad is stepping out of your comfort zone and taking steps on to the path of self-creation. It means discovering and reflecting on who you are, as a person and as an artist. Living and studying abroad is therefore recommended for every artist. Meet people and use art to communicate beyond borders of any kind, and use that to reach into the world.

Brussels is a melting pot of languages, cultures and religions, is a complex but fascinating European metropolis and it is Luca School of Arts home base. Audio-visual Arts in Luca Brussels consists of Film, Animation Film and the Erasmus Mundus Programme Doc Nomads. As our campus in Brussels also houses Visual Arts (Photography, Fine Arts, Graphic Storytelling and Media and Information Design), Interior Design and Construction Technology, this is the perfect place where cross-fertilization between different media and domains in the arts is made possible. Luca School of Arts Brussels is therefore the place to be for future exchange students.


Programme for exchange students: Drawing skills and graphic insight are indispensable while studying in our Animation Film study department.

As an exchange student, you’ll mainly be enrolled in 3rd year courses. Some courses will be organised within the 2nd year because of the curriculum structure. We expect you to have acquired all the basic components regarding the making of an animation film. It’s also necessary to have obtained advanced skills in character animation, narration and art direction. In the 3rd BA we focus on the development of a personal stylistic style, which is indispensably linked to the students personal manner of storytelling and visualizing movement. The focus is therefore gradually shifting to one's own work and personal ambitions, on realizing an animation film that meets professional standards, both technically and creatively.

    At LUCA we attach great importance to the quality of our courses

    If the basic principle of the policy plan means that 'quality is our driving force', and that every aspect of the policy can be tested against this, then LUCA undeniably wants to develop and nurture a strong quality culture: a culture that leaves based on trust in people with talent and expertise, and which is aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

    The formal quality framework for training within LUCA was named KOPERA, which stands for: Critically Analyzing the Quality of Training with Peers in Own Direction.
    For KOPERA, LUCA starts from a vision of quality care that is based on trust and aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

    During the six-year KOPERA cycle, each training course receives a panel of critical friends who examine the implementation of the quality characteristics and examine how the training contributes to the general LUCA policy.
    The final element of KOPERA is the ultimate assurance of training quality. The key question is: "Does the program have a good quality culture that follows the 'plan-do-check-act' circle?"

    LUCA publishes a quality sheet for each course. You can find this on the Education Quality page.
