More like a studio than a campus

We've designed our space as well as our whole ethos to mirror a real industry studio experience. You're more likely to hear us talking about our "studios" than our "campus"!

You’ll learn industry-standard software from experienced tutors and be supported in and outside of class by our team of Studio Assistants. By the time you're an Escapee looking for professional roles, you'll be very familiar with a studio setup.

Our creative home

Our building is in the heart of the Greenwich Peninsula, in London's pedestrianised Design District. With amazing views of the Thames and Canary Wharf, we're a 3-minute walk from North Greenwich Tube Station, on the Jubilee Line.

There’s a vibrant student community in the area with restaurants, shops, bars and pop-ups close-by. Here are some highlights for your list.

Studio facilities

  • Studio classrooms (15-40 capacity) kitted with industry software you'd find in top studios

  • Student Services hub

  • Breakout spaces

  • Kitchens with fridges, microwaves and tea/coffee/hot chocolate facilities with milk alternatives

  • Access to green screen and camera tech

  • Multi-faith prayer room

  • Epic views of London from the 10th and 11th floors!

Industry-standard hardware

Our studio classrooms are kitted with high-end HP Z Workstation Desktop PCs. We use Eizo ColorEdge monitors which are professional grade, colour-accurate monitors used extensively in the creative industries. We also use Wacom Intuos drawing tablets.

We offer both Windows and Linux - as many VFX studios use Linux. Most of our machines dual boot both operating systems, giving students the choice.

Students can also remote-access available workstations 24/7 using software optimised for graphics use. Workstations not in use become part of our render farm.

How to get here

We're easily accessible by Tube, bus, cable car, riverboat or road. Visit the TfL website for more details.

We're a 3-minute walk from North Greenwich Tube station, which is on the Jubilee Line. You can also access the 24-hour Night Tube on Friday and Saturday evenings.

We're a short walk from a number of bus stops outside North Greenwich station including services to Central London, Lewisham and Stratford.

A more unique way to get here! You can take the IFS Cloud Cable Car from Greenwich Peninsula (right behind our building) to Royal Docks. The ride takes you over the River Thames with amazing views of London.

From Royal Docks you can change for the DLR from Royal Victoria, or take a short walk to the ExCel London (think Comic Con!).

North Greenwich Pier is a couple of minutes' walk from our studios. You can take a River Bus service through Central London as far as Westminster or Putney Pier.

We have a few parking options nearby. The closest are either one of The O2 car parks or North Greenwich Station Car Park.
