When it comes to applying a job for Cartoon Network or any other animation studio do they only accept people who are from Calarts I don't think I will be able to go to Calarts due to money and that I don't live in America but idk if art Schools in the UK are as good
This is actually a more common question than it should be!

CALARTS IS NOT THE BE ALL END ALL OF ART SCHOOLS.
Of course, studios don’t only hire Calarts students!!! There are artists from all kinds of schools and sometimes not college at all!
Heck, I have a friend who is one of the best board artists I know and he never went to art school. He was a PHYSICS PROFESSOR before he got his first board job!
Yes, some art schools can have nice perks sometimes
I promise you
A student who works hard at a “less prestigious” school will be a 100x better artist/employee than a student who half-asses their way through CalArts.
