Starting January 2022, The DAVE School will offer a fully residential course option for our VFX, GAME, and Virtual Production diploma students. Students will have the choice to register for either our hybrid delivery option featuring nine (9) months of live online classes and a three (3) month studio residency, OR choose our fully residential class delivery for the duration of their program. DAVE School Administrative Staff & Faculty are excited to offer both options for the upcoming year. Our fully residential classes will be a great method for those who prefer an in-person learning style and like the buzz of an urban campus.
