Why should I attend?
We know that choosing a course and a career can be a bit confusing, so if you’re thinking about going to college or university, our open events are a great way to find out more. Here at Coleg Gwent we offer hundreds of different courses so you can study something that you’re really passionate about – from forensic science, to hair and beauty, to engineering, to digital technologies, and more.

- Talk to course tutors and pick up a course guide
- Ask about potential careers
- Take a look around the campus
- Get help with the application process and apply at the event

- Find out about the support that we offer
Which open event should I attend?
We run two main types of open events here at Coleg Gwent: our main open events where you can find out about our range of full time and part time courses, and our university qualifications; and our more intimate Higher Education (HE) open events, which are aimed at those thinking of studying on one of 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 let you know.
Can't make these dates? A full list can be found on our events page.
