At the top of the rankings, both globally and in Europe, GOBELINS was rewarded for:

  • Academic reputation
  • Employment data
  • Admission selectivity
  • Depth and breadth of the program
  • Value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness

GOBELINS, which is going to celebrate its 60th anniversary, has gained international recognition.

Today, it offers a complete curriculum that meets international standards: a Bachelor degree in 3 years and the possibility of pursuing a Master degree for two years. Its animation film designer and director training program has just obtained the visa for its diploma.

A pre-preparatory animation course, a one-year 3D character animator course in partnership with CITIA in Annecy and a professional degree in audiovisual production management in partnership with the University of Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, complete this training offer.

In September 2024, the school will open a Master's degree in visual storytelling.

Erik ANSPACH, GOBELINS Paris' Director

"We are very proud to have been awarded 1st place for the 4th year running!"

"I would like to congratulate our entire animation department for their efforts and for accompanying our young #talent. Congratulations as well to our exceptional students whose artistic production is recognized each year at the most prestigious awards and festivals such as the Annie Awards.

This ranking resonates with our international strategy which has opened our programmes to rich cultural diversity, thereby strengthening the quality of our artistic production and storytelling. At back-to-school 2024, we will open a Master’s programme dedicated specifically to Visual Storytelling so as to enhance this aspect of our pedagogy and to continue training the world’s best narrators and content creators.

Finally, this is also the perfect occasion to thank our industry partners who help us train and assist top talent, notably through our DEI programmes."
