CapU degree pathway program, NIMBUS School of Recording & Media

Students who successfully graduate from our 12-month Diploma program are eligible to complete a Diploma in Arts & Entertainment Management with CapU within twelve months. International students who graduate from Nimbus and gain successful admission into CapU are eligible to apply for a Post Graduate Work Permit.

Through the CapU Arts and Entertainment Management program, students will gain the skills to work in B.C.’s entertainment industry. Whether you pursue a career in music, film, TV, theatre, artist management or a related field, this program gives you business skills to thrive in your area of interest. This is normally a two year program, however, our graduates will bypass year one and move straight into year two.

The pathway program is one of the first-of-its-kind partnerships between a BC public university and a private college. This wonderful opportunity was created to:
  • enhance student mobility and access to other entertainment-related industries, including design and theatre.
  • expand job opportunities by widening access to sectors where labor shortages exist
  • assist international students in achieving eligibility for post-graduate work permits. For more information on study permits in Canada, visit the Government of Canada website
  • offer a complimentary of production and academic education experiences in an accelerated format, providing cost/time savings for students wishing to pursue advanced education to enter the workforce
  • foster opportunities for faculty to collaborate and share resources

"

Partnering with Nimbus School of Recording and Media is indeed the right direction in educating students who like to excel in recording arts. Nimbus has proven itself to be a widely respected private college with programs that aim to support students both in school and once they graduate. The Music Production Recording and Business program is unparalleled, and we feel confident in any graduate pursuing further education with CapU. I can speak on behalf of the Faculty of Fine & Applied Arts when I say we look forward to working alongside Nimbus for many years to come.”
