Pearson College has acquired Escape Studios, a specialist effects (VFX) Academy based in Shepherd’s Bush. Escape Studios is Europe’s leading VFX Academy and delivers high quality, intensive programmes designed to meet the needs of the film and television industry. Their links with industry and relevant, up to date teaching from industry practitioners mirrors our ethos of industry focused education, which makes it a good cultural match for us. 

Significant contributions made by Escape Studio’s Alumni

Escape’s alumni have worked on productions such as the highest-grossing film of all time, Avatar, as well as Academy Award winning films Hugo, The Dark Knight and the Golden Compass. 

Advancing the STEM Agenda

This acquisition will allow Pearson College to support the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) agenda, helping to address the long-standing skills shortage in visual effects, animation and compositing that exists both in the UK and many parts of the world.  It will be the starting point for the creation of a range of technology related courses for students in the UK and overseas.
