Coronavirus & College Guidance

At Cardiff and Vale College (CAVC) the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors is our top priority. 

Due to the Coronavirus [COVID-19] pandemic, all campuses are currently closed to the majority of staff and students and to the general public.

From 15th June, in line with Welsh Government guidance, small numbers of students will make a safe return to campus, by invitation only, to be assessed and complete their qualification if this cannot be done remotely.

We continue to work, teach, support and progress all students online for the rest of this term.

We are open for applications for new students wishing to start a course in September 2020 and are preparing to provide the safest and best learning experience online and on campus for all.

Will Cardiff and Vale College be open for me to start my course in September 2020?

At Cardiff and Vale College (CAVC) the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and visitors is our top priority.


We are currently preparing to provide the safest and best learning experience for all of our new and returning students from September 2020. We intend to start the academic year in September with a mix of both face-to-face teaching on campus, combined with online learning and activities for you to do at home.

Can I still apply for a course at the college starting in September 2020?

Yes. We still have places on many courses across the college. Find a course on the website and click on the pink ‘Apply now’ button.

Once you’ve applied we then contact you to have a chat and check the course you have applied for is right for you. We will talk about what you want to do in the future and the previous qualifications or experience you have. If you were due to take exams this summer we will look at your predicted grades.

If the course is right for you we will then provide you with an unconditional offer – which means your place on a course at Cardiff and Vale College is safe for September.

If after talking to us another course seems better for you, we can discuss this with you and offer a place on a different course instead.

We are here for you online throughout the summer and available to chat with Monday – Friday every week.
