Kelowna is our flagship campus, featuring two audio recording studios, dedicated animation labs and art room, digital photography and digital filmmaking production studio, interior design lab and much more. A bustling hub of creativity and learning, visitors will be greeted at our reception desk and immediately see a wide range of student work on the walls, a tight-knit group of staff and students and a feeling of youth and ingenuity. Our brand new Surrey campus is modern, sleek and something we are very proud of.

Centrally located in Surrey, this modern, newly-renovated space is smaller than our Kelowna campus, but packs its own punch. Featuring floor to ceiling imagery, stylish finishes and bright colors, one can’t help but feel inspired in this space.

The Surrey campus hosts an animation lab and art room, mac lab, photography studio and a dedicated staff, there to assist you in achieving your educational goals.
