At VCAD, we believe that you should do what you love and are
passionate about. If you're looking for a creative career that allows
you to use your imagination and talents, we want to help you get there.
We know that a school's reputation is based largely on the reputation
of its programs. and a program is only as successful as its students.
When you enroll in a VCAD Applied Arts program, you follow an exciting, focused curriculum that combines theoretical learning with hands-on training
to build the skills you need to launch your dream career. By the end of
your studies, you'll have built a professional portfolio that not only
displays your creativity, but shows employers you have the skills and
talent that they're looking for.
We also understand that the cost of tuition often deters students
from pursuing an education. We'd prefer students to pursue their dreams
without worrying about the high cost of their education, so we keep our tuition fees lower than other schools.
We can accomplish this because of our large student base that allows us
to capitalize the expenses of running a school over a very large
population. We also reduce tuition fees by eliminating the unnecessary
and redundant programming from our curriculum which allows you to focus on learning the skills that employers demand. Therefore, we reduce the cost of secondary expenses without taking away from the quality of your education.
