Open Events

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.

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. However this year, we’re unable to attend community events due to COVID Restrictions, but you can still find out more about courses and college life through our Virtual Open Events.

Campus Open Events

We hold a series of Open Events at each campus for you to attend throughout the year. Please note, Campus Events are currently unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions, but you can still find out more about courses and college life by attending our Live Virtual Open Events.
