Black Box Academy emerged after eighteen years of experience working as Nepal’s first educator of Animation, VFX and Game Development. Founded by a visionary team of both creators and entrepreneurs, it has filled the gap between existing institutions and studios; outfitting a burgeoning ecosystem of businesses that demand talent.
Starting in 2000 as a vocational diploma school, in 2017 Black Box partnered with Cardiff Metropolitan University to offer programmes developed and validated for delivery at the University to be delivered at Black Box Academy, resulting in certified UK degrees. The University throughout the 4-year degree programme acts as an external moderator, providing guided quality assurance while inserting a developmental role in Black Box Academy's advancement. Delivery of the programmes are by both staffs of Black Box and the University.
While maintaining its Diploma programme, Black Box Academy recognizes the need for skill development not only for the younger generation but for the senior artists looking for career advancement. In both Degree and Diploma programmes, Black Box offers the same quality of education that places the student at the forefront of new technology and innovations within and outside the industry.
