View 2016 Start Dates

Unlike the vast majority of post-secondary institutions, programs at VFS start every few months throughout the year, which means you can choose when it's best for you to begin your education. The dates below represent the day instruction starts for each program. Students come from all over the world to attend VFS, so start dates fill up quickly. Speak to an Advisor to find out how you can reserve your spot.

Tuition

How does VFS calculate the price of your tuition? One important and distinctive factor is that your tuition at VFS is all-inclusive. Essential materials – textbooks, budgets for film stock and processing, and access to equipment, art supplies, computers, software, and more – are supplied to you at a single cost.

Some students choose to contribute personally to augment a project. However, this is not required for graduation and done at their sole discretion.

The objective of VFS is to give you the necessary skills to get started on your career path as quickly as possible. Traditional college and university programs span two to four years, or longer, increasing the total cost of living as well as lost income opportunities.

VFS programs are condensed, allowing you to complete your studies in a concentrated period of time – under a year. This reduces the total cost of living and provides you with the opportunity to secure paid employment in the industry long before the university student graduates.
