Would it be possible to consume this using WebApi or MVC4?
It's for an assignment and I don't really want to use web forms

sure why not? webforms or MVC is just about making up a visual representation of the data retrieved from that particular webservice. All the webservice from that third party does is exposing data in a standardized way. That's the whole point of it: to expose
data in such a way that it doesn't matter if you connect with .NET, Node.js, PHP, Java, whatever, ... it just gives back the data in a standard form and your end of the technology stack needs to make sure it understands that standard. That's all.
Webservices, .asmx, were introduced with .NET 1.0 so even back then you could've connected with it.
Did you actually try to connect with it from Visual Studio (right click on the project, add service reference...).
