Higher Education

Capita Managed IT Solutions specialises in delivering enterprise level IT Services to the Higher Education sector, and has developed a strong heritage working with universities to build a deep understanding of the challenges and key opportunities they face.

Transforming Higher Education

The increasing demand from students within Higher Education is at an all-time high, and this trend shows no signs of slowing. In an economy and world where careers are often difficult to ignite, students are rightly seeking more than certified qualification, they want what employers need – skills that can be adopted in the workplace. The increasing number of students is placing pressure on universities, not only in regard to physical space, but on their back-end IT infrastructures. Balancing the focus on skills development whilst also offering an environment to meet technology demands is challenging, and this is where Capita has the expertise and offerings to help.
