Does anybody know are there any schools in the Netherlands which give really good education in 3d animation or in 3d graphics design?

A lot of the art academies in the Netherlands teach 3D and related subjects now. Most notably the HKU. Just look at their websites.

There's also the AES in amsterdam, and I'm teaching a short Blender 3D beginners course myself at the SKVR in Rotterdam this winter.

Thank you very much for your reply. Do you also know about the teaching language in these schools? Dutch or English? Thanks.

Sorry... It's not AES but SAE hehe: http://www.sae.nl/

All dutch art academies have foreign students who don't speak dutch. So English is no problem... I'm not sure about the other institutes though.

Im considering SAE (qantm) and their interactive animation course in Amsterdam. Can you tell me anything about their reputation in "industry-land" ?

Well as far as I know the SAE is quite an expensive respectable private school. Originally they mostly did Audio I think. I was not aware of qantm college at all, looks like a very new initiative... so it's hard to say anything about the quality.

I've met some teachers from the SAE, and they seemed ok. Though I also remember from my days working for radio, that we were unimpressed by the quality of the audio technicians that came from there. But then... people really never have all the skills straight out of school.

Personally, I think it looks nice, but I'd prefer the HKU http://www.hku.nl
But I'm an old feller, and when I was in school the HKU was basicly the only option for the digital stuff, so all the interesting stuff came from there (I didn't go there myself, at that time I was busy welding/sculpting and such... old school like)

It's nearly impossible to advise people on what to do. The very best thing you can do, is find out if there is an open day at the institutes you're interested in, and go there to see for yourself! And do some more searching to find more institutes in the Netherlands... there's a bunch.

You can also look at the IMVFX study at the Netherlands Film and Television Academy. I graduated last June for this study. I think it is a great study with lots of great guest speakers for 3d animation (Kyle Balda and other Pixar animators)
3 of my classmates worked on Hawkes (an 3d animation film: http://www.hawkesfilm.com/ ) they got ones a month feedback from Kyle Balda and Guerrilla games animators/technical artist.

For further information look at
http://www.english.filmacademie.nl/en/bachelors-programmes/imvfx/

On my demoreel you can get a look at the level of VFX when graduating.

hi guys
not sure how old this post is
but anyways.

I have just finished from the grafisch lyceeum rotterdam (3d animation and games)
It was quite ok.
but because of the economic dip atm, its hard to find work

I was looking at going to quntm, but its quite expenisive....
there is also the HKU and a game school in breda.
have some old class mates, that are following different dutch game studies.
so i will probabl ask them.

But most of the stuff i learned was from my "stage" (apprentiship) and from this forum.
and other 3d tutorals.

but i think its important to be up to date, and have a pimpin portoflio
