Cardiff and Vale College is one of the largest colleges in the UK, with over 30,000 students per year arriving at the institution from across the UK, and over 40 countries worldwide.  We have top class industry facilities for a wide range of courses throughout South Wales including state of the art classroom technology and laboratories and a new digital learning environment. Our international profile has grown significantly – attracting more and more international students, building new and exciting partnerships across the world.

The College offers one of the widest choices of AS and A Level courses in the region at our iconic City Centre Campus which has fantastic facilities to support our excellent track record across a variety of subjects including science and the arts. However, we focus on more than qualifications; believing strongly in developing the skills individuals and employers require for future success. And it works – 86% of our students progress to further study or employment within two months of completing their course and last year some 850 of our learners progressed on to university level study.

We now also play a key role in providing education and training within the Financial and Professional Services and Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing Enterprise Zones. Recently voted Wales Business Insider ‘College of the Year’ and with business and university partnerships including Deloitte, British Airways, University of West London, University of South Wales and University of Birmingham, Cardiff and Vale College are strongly positioned to drive the transformation of education and training across Wales and the UK.

Cardiff, voted one of the highest ranked cities in Europe for quality of life, is an historic city with a rich culture. It is a beautiful coastal city located only two hours from London. We are delighted to welcome students to our quality assured programs in Shanghai and look forward to hosting groups studying the International A-Levels into our state of the art campus, based in the beautiful City of Cardiff.
