BOOT CAMPS

From Back to School 2022

An adapted program of workshops, visits and stimulating exercises has been put in place by the teaching team to support each participant in improving their portfolio and preparing for motivational interviews. All in a relaxed atmosphere and with moments of relaxation and conviviality.
This is the opportunity to prepare your portfolio in a calm manner, by meeting the teachers and supervisors, by immersing yourself in the premises and the world of our students, by practicing presenting your artistic approach.

 

The Bootcamp is offered at a price of 550 €

Feedback from Philémon Caron on the video games boot camp 2019: “Learn a lot, touch the job and know if your choice of direction is the right one. “

“I really enjoyed the Boot Camp for three aspects:

1- Meet the candidates and the supervising team
This is an opportunity to interact with students coming from high schools and different regions during a week, and who will surely be our future classmates. We stayed in contact via Social Networks.
The Boot Camp is also the opportunity to meet the team that is very available and accessible. We really feel a difference in terms of close relationships with those that we used to have in high school.

2- Be reassured about the training to be followed and be prepared for the interview
The good news for those who have never touched the development of video games is that it allows us to discover what we will learn later and to reassure ourselves about the training that we will follow.
We are also coached for the passage of the interview that will validate our admission to 3D POLE. It’s very interesting to be able to do a blank interview, learn a lot of things which then make you feel more comfortable, especially in practical tests with Fun facts that can memorize.

3- A mix of formative moments and conviviality
The week was intense but with a good mix of practical lessons, the project to develop, the interview to prepare and the moments of conviviality organized for the participants.
