Student Testimonials:

" Because the tutors are always around, we get loads of one-to-one time with them, and they’ve adapted the syllabus to suit our needs. I’m applying to Parsons in New York to do my third year – without CSVPA and their belief in me this just wouldn’t have been possible. "
Scott-UK , CSVPA, BA Graphic Design & Illustration
Scott successfully managed to acheive his place at Parsons where he will complete his degree.

“ I enjoyed the cosy atmosphere of the college where the staff and tutors are really dedicated and committed. Not only that, you also get a lot of personal attention from tutors so there is no way you could ever feel left out, lost or uninspired! My tutors and my time in Cambridge have really moulded my work and I appreciate every minute and second of effort they put into developing and motivating me. No tutor I've worked with since has matched the dedication and spirit of my tutors at CSVPA. My years spent in Cambridge will always be amongst the best and most memorable of my life. ”
