Open events

Come along to one of our open events

Choosing the right course, and the career you want, can be daunting…and a bit confusing! So if you’re thinking about college or university, our open events are a brilliant way to find out more and get all your questions answered.


We have hundreds of different courses to choose from, giving you the chance to study something you’re really passionate about – from forensic science to hair and beauty, and engineering to digital technologies and more.


Our open events have staff and Student Ambassadors on hand to answer whatever questions you have – so you’ll be able to:

  • Talk to course tutors and pick up a course guide

  • Ask about potential careers

  • Take a look around the campus, facilities and classrooms 

  • Get help with the application process and apply there and then

  • Get information about financial support and travel

  • Find out about the support that we offer


Each of our campuses offer different subjects, so depending on which subjects you want to discuss at an open event, please visit the relevant campus.


Please note, if you attend an open event at our Pontypool campus, you can discuss the subjects on offer at Torfaen Learning Zone from September 2020. For a list of the courses available, please visit the dedicated webpage.


Choose the right open event for you

There are two types at Coleg Gwent. Our main open events give you the chance to find out about all our full time and part time courses, together with our university qualifications; our Higher Education (HE) information events are more intimate, and aimed at anyone thinking of studying on our university level courses. 



If you’re not sure which one to sign up for, just give us a call on 01495 333777 and we’ll be happy to help.

Here’s what others have said about our open events:

I preferred the open event at Blaenau Gwent Learning Zone compared to other colleges; I only decided on law as a subject after speaking to the tutors about it at an open event and found it really interesting”, Alicia Powell, A level student.


“Definitely go to an open day! You get a chance to meet the people who are going to be teaching you. It’s a nice relaxed atmosphere, relevant and a great source of information”, Hannah Williams, PCET student


“I went to an open event, met the teachers and had a look around campus. I thought about sixth form but I prefer college”, Cian Jones, A level student


“Attend an open event and apply…I came to an open event and spoke to the staff about my interests and predicted grades.  The staff informed me due to my grades I could apply for the course I’m on now”, Jade Parry, Electrical student  


“An open event helped me decide about the course as I found out what the course and campus was about…I applied then and there in the library and had help with my application”, Hajar Abdul, Childcare student
