Established in 1996 in Cape Town, City Varsity rapidly cemented itself as the go-to media and creative arts school in South Africa. Simultaneously, the demand for quality private tertiary media education facilitated the opening of a campus in Newtown, Johannesburg in 2007. Students’ lifestyles are enriched by the proximity to media and creative industries surrounding these campuses. The increasing numbers of international students at both campuses bears testament to City Varsity's positive reputation on a global level.
With a strong emphasis on practical work across all media disciplines, City Varsity graduates leave with a portfolio of relevant work to prospective employers. This constant hands-on approach provides graduates with a distinct advantage in the job market.
