Student Testimonials

  • Rem, Concept Artist

    The classes are really interesting. Our lecturer is the best lecturer I've ever had. No one has ever sat down and taught me how to paint like that. The lecturer not only taught us how to texture, he also taught us major skills like lighting and ambience. The hands-on approach at MAGES was a game changer for my art.

  • Fang Yang, 3D Modeller

    The course far exceeded my expectations. I have not seen any other course that covers such an extensive area. This would be one of the best places to come for 3D Character Development.

  • Vanessa, 3D Animation Student

    What I love about MAGES is how different each individual is, they come from all over the world and learn from each other to produce amazing work. MAGES Lecturers also kept encouraging and believing in me, with constant reviews and suggestions to show me how to improve - adding to my overall learning experience.

  • Mrs Tong, Mother of Game Design Student, Kief Tong

    I enrolled my son kief Tong Yi Long in the diploma for Game Design last year Feb 2018 that ended in Feb 2019. My son was an introvert child but since the day he stepped into MAGES, he was happy and eager to excel in his course. He really scored so well in his mid term with credits and distinctions and this final results with 7 credits. We as parents are so proud of him.
    I am thankful to all the staff at MAGES for providing their students with excellent guidance and a conducive environment.

  • Nirmal David, Animation Director, Cirqus Studios

    What really caught my attention was how in a very short time the students managed to get a decent level of finesse in their work. To think that in a few months they not only learned the tools of the trade from scratch, but also managed to output good work is really a testament to the academy and its faculty

  • Enrique Caballero - CG supervisor, One Animation

    We at One Animation are very impressed with the quality of work coming out of Mages Institute. They have the competitive edge required to succeed in our industry
