Our Philosophy

Education hasn’t changed much in the last several hundred years. A teacher or professor typically stands in front of a group of students and lectures to them about a topic, then gives them tests and papers on that topic. Standard, traditional, expected, conventional.

But wrong.

Research into the human mind and how the brain processes information has taught us much in the last decade about superior ways for educators to impart information to students. Unfortunately, most schools – including those that have done much of this research – cannot adopt these cutting edge techniques. Schools are often too immersed in tradition and a tenure-system that resists change to adopt proven and progressive educational methods.

We’re not.

We’re new. And we’re committed to giving students the best educational experience. Inspired by the greatest of the world’s academic institutes, along with the aforementioned proven educational techniques, we have built an educational institute that is:

  • Absolutely committed to our student’s welfare and growth
  • Devoted to engaging and entertaining students in every class, because an engaged and entertained mind (research shows) absorbs and retains information better and longer
Our programs and training are so robust that we are sure to get you placement even before you finish the course. In addition to the skills taught in the program itself, Stargate is well connected to the industries we serve and can help you with your job placement in a number of ways.
At Stargate School of Design & Animation, students are allocated with dedicated work hours daily, plus they can book the lab 24x7 to practice on assignments and short films. The lab is open on Saturdays and Sundays ensuring students make the best use of facilities.
Stargate has over a decade’s experience of producing skill full artists and technicians who contributed to prestigious domestic and International projects. All these faculty are accessible and available full time for students both during class hours and practice sessions
