  1. How does Max the Mutt differ from other colleges and universities?

    Yes! Our track record with graduates finding work with
    major companies and studios is very impressive.

    • We are only entering the 3rd year of our first our-year Illustration & Storytelling for Sequential Arts program, so we don’t have rates for that program yet. However, our graduates from our 3 year Illustration program have gone on to develop successful careers as freelance artists, as comic book artists, graphic novel artists, graphic designers and storyboard artists.

  4. What is the grading system?

    Students are graded as follows:

    • LOW PASS
    • PASS
    • HIGH PASS
    • PASS WITH HONOURS
    • REPEAT

    To receive a PASS in any course students must in addition to course content, receive a PASS in Professional Behaviour; this requires that the student demonstrates an ability to take direction, an ability to meet deadlines, to treat everyone with respect, to demonstrate effort and focus, and a professional level of attendance and punctuality. Without a PASS in Professional Behaviour, the final grade will not be higher than a LOW PASS.
