What our students say

I chose CAVC because I knew that I wanted to study a course that would help me get to the future career and job that I aspire to and it was the best opportunity available to me. I enjoy working in a state-of-the-art campus right in the heart of Cardiff. I also enjoy just getting on with the work and being able to work towards what I want. There are several opportunities such as study visits that we can have along the way. The whole experience is just great!

The College has helped me with my future career as there is a lot of help available, there’s people I can speak to and programmes like the Career Ready programme. The tutors have got lots of experience in the workplace so they are able to help me.

I have just enjoyed the whole College experience overall. It’s a really pleasant environment and it is great for working. In terms of what’s next for me is I am keeping an open mind and I am open to any possibility. Ideally, I’d like to work in the rail industry but I am happy to take whatever opportunity comes my way.
