FX Family Program

The reception and accompaniment program for newly incorporated national and international students.

When starting training in FX, students face a double academic and social challenge: they leave their city or school and even their groups of friends to start a new life and study  experience at FX ANIMATION.

The FX Family Program aims to actively integrate the student at school and in Barcelona, helping them to feel accompanied and participate in academic life from day one. As an inclusive school, the program is aimed at all students without distinguishing between any of them and respecting the individual needs of each one, at all times.

At FX, we are one big family and we strive for students, teachers and non-teaching staff to feel at home at FX. This meeting point with students strengthens coexistence, communication and knowledge exchange between the different training areas of the school. Integration and the feeling of belonging influence motivation and strong academic performance. Our program is totally free and available to all students from all backgrounds.
