All teachers will tell you at the beginning of your courses that the best way to get a job is through recommendations from them. One teacher told us about all the students that burned him, or spoke up about him, and now "aren't working in the industry".
So if you have any issues with any of the teachers, it almost guarantees silence if you want to work in this industry. Seneca course instructor reviews gave no space for comments about the teacher.
One teacher did not show up for 4.5 out of 14 classes, tells us to watch other classes he has taught, gives no guidance.
Many teachers do not respond to questions outside of class if you need help, messaging 3+ times with the same question.
A few teachers have encouraged stealing from other artists without explaining what that means. Which has led to some questionable behaviors from some students.
Understanding that this is a professional program and that comes with certain issues is ok. But it's also a school, and many teachers leave you to learn through linkedin learning, youtube tutorials, etc.
Spend your thousands somewhere else.

Seneca is one of the best options for students looking for an accredited diploma program. I myself am studying animation, and cannot picture myself picking another school. The instructors are clear and willing to offer assistance, and may have worked on some recognizable titles, it’s always great to listen to their stories before or after class.
Located in Toronto, the campus is easily accessible with tons to do in between classes, or places to go after hours with classmates or the cool profs.
The animation program is actually one of the hardest to get into in Canada, but that leads to some of the biggest animation studios in the world looking to Seneca for potential employees when it’s time to graduate. Calling the program anything short of Oscar worthy isn’t enough, it deserves Best Picture.
