Our Cape Town campus, has an atmosphere that crackles with potential, passion and the creative energy needed to perfect your artistic vision.
Whether it’s a rehearsal for the next trending flash mob, an impromptu guitar jam session or a soul-stirring poetry slam event, as our student you’re bound to have every extra-curricular opportunity to express yourself, and to find that which sets you apart.
Despite being wonderfully unique individuals, our students and educators are all united by a passion for ‘art’. As such, we’ve equipped our creative colleges with the facilities and opportunities to cater to that.
To fulfil your potential, you need to be mentored by the very best. We’ve created the environment for our students to benefit from the Real-World experience and passion of industry experts, who maintain close ties to their fields of focus. Your instruction is further enhanced by state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technologies.
Our College in Cape Town boasts superior Art, Sound, Film, Acting and Photography studios, an Infinity Wall, Dark Room, Casting Rooms and fully equipped labs for Animation, Multimedia and Journalism.
Our next-door neighbours include several heavy-weights in the Media and Creative industries. These include many notable Advertising, Animation, Design and Production Companies and Studios. We place a strong emphasis on practical experience so our students, across all media disciplines, leave CityVarsity with a portfolio of industry-relevant work. Many of our alumni are employed in our immediate vicinity, fostering strong and industry-relevant personal and professional relationships.
As our school is located in the heart of Cape Town, as one of our students, you will enjoy an array of student accommodation options and plenty of creative and intellectual stimulation from museums, theatres, cinemas and of course, the famous Company Gardens- all of these are just a stone’s throw away!
CityVarsity adds a tremendous amount of excitement and colour to the Cape Town community. We believe in getting involved and have spearheaded several events that showcase the talent of our students. BodySpectra, billed as Cape Town’s annual body painting extravaganza, is hosted by our very own Art Department. The event, however, is so much more, acting as a practical exam and fundraiser, while providing a feast for the eyes and stimulation for the creative mind.
