Hear From Our Students...
“Some of the things I have taken away from AIT are skills, friends and confidence in this strange new world called the ‘Game Industry.’ The greatest thing about AIT compared to other Universities is the campus itself. It’s small and easy to get around. The classes and lectures are always engaging and practical, which adds an exciting learning experience.”
“I will never forget AIT, from the teachers to the students who have become close friends. If you are looking for a place that offers personal learning and an experience like no other, AIT is definitely the place for you.”
“I’ve been studying AIT’s Film & Video degree over the last 2 years. During this time I’ve been able to learn so much from the teachers and mentors here. My greatest achievement to date was being part of the 2017 and 2018 .Motion Awards.”
“AIT is really welcoming to spend time and work, the teachers are great and accessible for questions and help even when it doesn't concern their own class. This whole year experience gave me a real independence in my work, a new set of skills and game industry knowledge, and finally, opportunities to join the industry as soon as I was graduated.”
“It gave me an opportunity to hone what I had learnt and make a full animation. I wanted to one-up my year 12 work and make something I was really proud of, which led me to creating HackyJack, which is a centrepiece of my portfolio.”
“AIT was an awesome experience that I cherish and value to this day. It provided me with the perfect opportunity to find exactly which stream of the game industry that truly piqued my interest. Once I discovered my passion for programming, AIT provided me with the tools that allowed me to confidently begin my transition into the industry.”
“AIT is a very welcoming place and is full of creativity when you walk through the campus. There are a lot of great courses and they’re very hands-on as we dive into all the fun activities straight away. The campus offers a lot of industry events which is a fantastic opportunity to learn from the best of the business and meet other likeminded creatives. After graduating, AIT has kept me busy with paid video gigs and outer connections which had led me to travel the globe. I am overall satisfied with AIT and I recommend studying there!”
“Studying in AIT was my best choice ever. I've learned a lot with my 3D modelling and Animation. The same as VFX I can give 10 out of 10.”
