Thinking of coming to college or studying a university course?

Choosing the right course and career path can be daunting and a bit confusing. Whether you’re looking at A Levels, vocational courses, apprenticeships or higher education courses, Coleg Gwent has something for everyone, and an Open Event is the best way to find out all you need to know and get answers to your burning questions.

This year we’ll be hosting a mixture of on campus and live virtual events, meaning you can choose the way to attend that best suits you. You could even attend one of each! Check out our schedule of open events to see when the next date for each attendance method is.

We also attend a range of community events throughout the year, so look out for our Coleg Gwent stand to find out more about studying with us and what we have to offer.

Campus Open Events

We hold a series of Open Events at each campus for you to attend throughout the year. These events are a great chance to see where you’ll be studying, ask any questions you may have and meet some of your future tutors.

Live Virtual Open Events

  • Find out about potential careers
  • Take a look around the campus and state-of-the-art facilities via our 360 tours
