About Visual College of Art and Design of Vancouver
Our Mission: Visual College of Art and Design (VCAD) provides accessible, innovative, and industry-driven education and training that serves the needs of our local communities by preparing graduates for rewarding careers in the art and design.
VCAD is highly regarded for providing a well-rounded arts education in an environment that emphasizes creativity and individuality. We are proud to be associated with this educational heritage and we are eager to bring its studio-based legacy into the digital age at our campus in Vancouver.
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.
