Description of centre

Cardiff and Vale College International is a great place to study and meet new people. We offer high quality teaching and excellent learning facilities with support and guidance from our friendly welfare staff. We are situated in the heart of Cardiff, with easy access to all the social and cultural amenities that the capital of Wales has to offer.

English for International Students (EIS) offers full-time general English and IELTS courses. General English courses are offered at all levels from elementary through to advanced. The IELTS courses are designed for intermediate - advanced students. Students can study on a range of courses from 16+ hours per week, throughout the year. We also offer an International Foundation Certificate in conjunction with Cardiff Metropolitan University.

EIS also offers a range of part-time courses. Students can choose to do a part-time course as a stand-alone option, or they can do one or two of these courses in addition to their full-time course. Part-time courses include General English, IELTS, Proficiency, Exam skills, Writing Skills, and Business English.

During July and August we run IELTS Intensive courses which focus on exam skills and test preparation.

The college also regularly hosts closed groups on short, bespoke courses that typically include accommodation and a social/cultural experience package.

Homestay accommodation is available and our accommodation officer helps students to arrange homestay or self-catered accommodation with a family.

Students can contact the International office by email, phone or in person. We look forward to welcoming you to Cardiff and Vale College!
