Time of day
I did look around colleges before deciding on where to go, but Cardiff and Vale College provided the course information that I wanted. We have done quite a lot of reports and case studies but also looked into how the human brains works, so we can understand many forms of disabilities, both mental and physical. From my time at CAVC I can say that the staff are very friendly, I’ve also made a lot of friends and just generally enjoyed my time here.
