Full Sail University Stats, Info and Facts

Full Sail University

Whether it's video games, film, recording, art and design, web technology, or the business behind music and entertainment, Full Sail University's campus and online degree programs offer immersive educational experiences centered around the needs of the entertainment and media industry.

Creative Campus

Located in Winter Park, Florida (just minutes from Orlando), the Full Sail campus has the look and feel of a creative studio environment, complete with industry-standard recording studios, spacious film soundstages, a motion capture studio, game studios, and a professional performing arts venue - all housed in a 191-acre multimedia complex.

Technology-Driven Learning

Both campus and online students work within Full Sail's interactive online-based platform. Since students all use the same online learning system, it allows us to push the boundaries with our course content - offering a truly multimedia learning experience.

Through Project LaunchBox, both campus and online students receive a MacBook Pro at a deep institutional discount, pre-equipped with professional software. The Mac serves as a personal workstation, allowing students to work and create wherever they are.

Industry Advisory Boards

Each program has an advisory board comprised of working professionals who continually update Full Sail on the needs of their industry. Since Full Sail courses are offered on a monthly basis, each program's curriculum can stay up-to-date with advances in the real world.

Real-World Opportunities

From assisting with production on the nationally syndicated Daily Buzz (filmed on campus), to working alongside ESPN pros on game intros, to designing motion graphics for the Orlando Magic, to working with lights, sound, and set design at our Live Venue, many students are able to gain experience on real-world, high-profile projects.

      I love it, for the most part I only really have to worry about one night, Tuesdays, my class are Tuesday night. I can schedule my time however I need it as long as I make Tuesdays Class. All classes have some sort of open lab so to speak. If you need a instructor they are just a click away.

      My time at Full Sail University by far has been so enjoyable. It's nice being around people that actually have the same interests that you do. Full Sail just provides an environment where one feels comfortable enough to ask questions about their studies and the teachers are more than happy to answer. Full Sail is a lot of work but it doesn't even seem like you're working. I only had one incident at Full Sail so far, which was that someone took my tripod from set. Which I take responsibility for because I should of been more careful.
