A new “Satellite Campus” has been proposed for Hyderabad that will offer programmes in animation, gaming and VFX on par with international standards.
As per the agreement, Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) has been appointed as the nodal agency to implement the programme on behalf of the State to set up a campus which is likely to come up in 2018.
The VFS would send teachers, lecturers and experts to conduct off-site training and classes as well as examinations, along with offering scholarships and incentives for students of the campus to attend VFS Canada.
The MoU was signed in presence of Telangana IT Minister KT Rama Rao and Canadian Minister of International trade, Francois Philippe Champagne, who was in the city as part of a ministerial dialogue between the two countries.
According to its official website, VFS offers 13 post-secondary diploma programs that deliver techniques and skills required in acting, animation, film and TV production, screenwriting, programming, makeup, sound, interactive or game design.
