About Us

It is an incredible time to study at The College Merthyr Tydfil. With over 2,000 students, state of the art facilities, a fantastic range of courses and high quality teaching and support, we have much to offer our students, ensuring that you will get the most out of your time with us.

Our current students really enjoy their experience at the college and we are sure that you will too.

“Learners are enthusiastic about their experiences in the college, recognise their growth in confidence and their greater capacity to cope with a wider range of learning and personal issues.” (Estyn 2010)

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
  • Broaden your career ideas, and postpone your career destinations until you are clear what you want to do.
  • Provide you with opportunities to engage in extra-curricula activities to further enhance your future education or career.


Don't just take our word for it. Come along to one of our Open Evenings and see the opportunities on offer for yourself. The evenings will also provide you with the chance to meet our subject area staff and talk to our current students about their experience at college.
