Experts in education
For more than 30 years, Capita digital and software solutions have supported the higher education sector. From student records and library management systems, to online payment solutions and business analytics, over 60 higher education institutions in the UK and Ireland rely on Capita as a trusted technology partner. We also work with 21,000 schools and over 130 colleges across 49 different countries, using this depth of knowledge in education to continually inform and improve our software solutions.
Building long-term partnerships
Education accounts for more than 15% of our entire business - we sell more solutions to the UK education market than Microsoft. And in addition to IT and software solutions, Capita has partnered with almost half of the UK's higher education institutions across the full property lifecycle, creating cutting edge research, student and campus facilities that make real and lasting impacts on the wider community. The range and scale of higher education products and support services we deliver to UK universities means Capita has an unrivalled understanding of this educational sector.
Who we work with
Our strategic technology partnerships, and relationships with key sector service providers and organisations, ensure we continue to develop software solutions to meet the evolving needs of universities.
Working with the HE community

As a long-time UCISA corporate member, we're able to stay up-to-date with the issues facing university information services to help drive more effective and efficient procurement processes.
