Animation film in Genk

Academic Bachelor / Exchange Programme

Our degree welcomes international students who wish to develop professional all round level skills in Animation. We provide an energetic team of lecturers (industry professionals) who maintain warm and personal contact with students.
By means of intensive individual coaching, we encourage our students to explore their interests and to become an innovator in the style(s) that match their abilities.

We offer a mix of courses mostly lectured in English and especially atelier work which is guided in English. Exchange is only possible in the Autumn Semester.

Please scroll down and discover more content and study approach.


In the first year we provide a strong basis in the most important animation film techniques (2D, 3D, stop motion), and skills (screenwriting, storyboarding, animation, sound design, postproduction, ...). During later years we expect our students to become researchers, who pursue a personal trajectory within a chosen style, and who are able to express their view on society and the world.

At LUCA we attach great importance to the quality of our courses

If the basic principle of the policy plan means that 'quality is our driving force', and that every aspect of the policy can be tested against this, then LUCA undeniably wants to develop and nurture a strong quality culture: a culture that leaves based on trust in people with talent and expertise, and which is aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

The formal quality framework for training within LUCA was named KOPERA, which stands for: Critically Analyzing the Quality of Training with Peers in Own Direction.
For KOPERA, LUCA starts from a vision of quality care that is based on trust and aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

During the six-year KOPERA cycle, each training course receives a panel of critical friends who examine the implementation of the quality characteristics and examine how the training contributes to the general LUCA policy.
The final element of KOPERA is the ultimate assurance of training quality. The key question is: "Does the program have a good quality culture that follows the 'plan-do-check-act' circle?"

LUCA publishes a quality sheet for each course. You can find this on the Education Quality page.
