CAVC works with a network of expert partner universities from across the UK to bring a wide range of HE courses to the Capital Region and now, with QAA approval, isnow able to develop and award its own HE courses.

The College offers a high quality, supportive and personalised HE experience. Students benefit from smaller class sizesteaching from specialist lecturers who are fully engaged with their industryexperiences to benefit employability; and live industry briefs to help you stand out from the crowd and progress. All HE courses include both face-to-face and online learning to fit around individual’s lives.
