With over 100 courses for you to choose from, we have something for everyone. So whether you are looking to study A Levels, vocational qualifications, Apprenticeships, Diplomas, Degrees or Professional Qualifications, we have a suitable course for you.

Our links with local businesses and the local community, mean that whatever you choose to study we will be able to provide you with the opportunity to enrich your educational experience through work experience, volunteering and enrichment activities, enterprise challenges, sports coaching and much more.

Our results and success rates are also second to none; in 2017 we achieved a 100% A level pass rate together with 100% pass rates across many of our vocational areas. Our higher education learners also achieve consistently good results and in 2016/2017 we were rated the top college out of all FE colleges in Wales for HE student satisfaction.

 

Whether you know what you want to study or not, our expert team of admissions advisers and subject tutors are here to help and advise you on course options and ensure that you are placed on the right course for you.

In addition to coming to the college to study at A, FE or HE level, there are many other benefits. Your time at college will enable you to:

  • Gain the confidence and the qualifications to get a good job or progress into higher education by offering you the ideal stepping stone
