Escape Studios approved as a Rookies Certified School

Escape Studios has been approved and endorsed as a Rookies Certified School, an exclusive accolade that identifies international institutions that best prepare students for a career in the creative industries.

The Rookies has become the platform for aspiring new talent to showcase their digital imagery. It notably runs influential global awards to promote the best emerging talent from select schools across the world. This formal accreditation is awarded by invite-only to the very best schools that provide the most up-to-date and relevant industry training and education for students aspiring to work in creative media industries.  

The Rookies work with an independent panel to assess creative media and entertainment schools. The in-depth review process makes sure only the best schools are accepted, and the accolade remains exclusive. Some of the factors within the review process include: 

  • Alumni feedback and success stories
  • Graduate acceptance rates
  • Failities and resources
  • Relationship with industry
  • Studios that hire graduates
  • Quality of student work

As part of this accreditation, a profile for Escape Studios has been published on the Rookies site, which is available to view here.

Dr Ian Palmer, Dean of Escape Studios said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this international accreditation by the Rookies, testament to the fantastic efforts of everyone here at Escape Studios, as well as many of our graduates who are enjoying international careers in the creative industries. 2020 has been a challenging year, however our staff and students have come together as a community, which has resulted in some outstanding work, as demonstrated in our recent showcase, and now this wonderful accolade from the Rookies.”
