What our students say

I started studying A Levels and just did not get on with them.  I eventually decided to pursue my creative interests and start a Creative Media course. It has been really hands on, practical and turned out to be something I really enjoyed doing. My tutors have been amazing and have always encouraged me to do well. The first year of the course gave me a huge confidence boost and that has allowed me to progress onto the Foundation Degree Film course that I am studying now. Everyone is so enthusiastic and that really supports your learning environment.

Career prospects & further study


Within the Creative industries, there are nearly 3,000 job openings predicted from now until 2024 and a 16.0% growth in Cardiff Capital Region (EMSI, 2018).

Students can progress into higher education on a number of related courses from BA in Film to BA in Visual Effects, to BA Cinema Studies or BA Media Production. At CAVC we offer a Foundation Degree in Film which is a brilliant progression route. 
Alternatively, students can progress directly into employment in the media sector which is a thriving industry here in Cardiff.
