Paid, Location and Date?

Super Spline offers paid internships as we believe hard work should be rewarded, and you can’t pay bills with hopes and dreams. It’ll be located at our HQ in Leamington Spa in the heart of the UK. Leamington is a hub of game developers so you’ll likely get to meet devs from big studios like Microsofts Playground, Electric Square, Rebellion, Sumo, Ubisoft and Sega. Housing or relocation assistance is not provided. We are an animation studio so only offer internships in 3D animation, at this stage it will specifically be tailored to animation for video games. The start date is from September, but we can be flexible, and offered on a three month basis, we hope to extend this period in the future.

Who is eligible for an internship? Are international students eligible?

Anybody is eligible as long as you have a passion for animation and can demonstrate your skills and willingness to pursue a career in animation. A degree in a closely related field or having completed an online animation course is an added bonus. This is a full-time position so only those who are no longer in University from September 2020 will be eligible this year.
