FAQ

All you need to know

What is “the waitlist”?

Many of our classes have an automated waitlist for students who wish to register their interest in a course before it becomes available.

    What are the benefits of attending the courses live?

    That's a great question! Nas Academy believes in going beyond just pre-recorded video lessons. Why? Because peer-to-peer learning has been shown to be one of the most powerful forms of learning.

      You will be able to ask questions, get live feedback, engage and connect with other artists just like you from all over the world! Our live classes are a great way to get the most out of learning the creative process of VFX, meeting new people and making new friends, relationships, and connections - some that will last well beyond the class itself.

        How do I register for the waitlist?

        You can easily get on the waitlist for a course by clicking on the ‘Join Waitlist’ tab. We’ll only need for your name, country and email address at the time of registration.

          How long will I be on the waitlist for?

          Depends on course availability – but it should roughly take 2-3 weeks for you to get off the waitlist.

            How will I know once I’m off the waitlist?

            We’ll send you an email with a confirmation as soon as the course becomes available.

              Do I need to pay to get on the waitlist?

              Not at all. You can get on the waitlist for free and you’ll only be charged for the course once it’s ready.

                Will I be automatically added to a class once I’m off the waitlist?

                No, but you will receive an immediate notification so you can book your spot before anybody else does!

                  Where are the live classes held?

                  All our live classes are held on Zoom – and are super fun! After completing the course, you will be given a recording of the live classes for future reference. You will also be added to our alumni community where you can learn more, participate in contests, and find out about freelance gigs.

                    How do I drop a waitlisted course?

                    The best part about getting on the waitlist is that once a course becomes available, you can still choose whether you want to sign up for it or not.

                      What do I do if I can't see a waitlist for my course?

                      If you can’t see a waitlist, it means that your course is available online now.
