Many courses are full to capacity, but senior managers report that there are currently limited places available, so it’s still possible to find a course if you contact your local college.
The number studying on university-level courses has increased steadily year-on-year. Today, Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has around 1,200 higher education students studying on 50 different degree courses - validated by major Welsh and English universities - across its three colleges: Coleg Llandrillo, Coleg Menai and Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor.
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai continues to expand its portfolio of Higher Education courses, both independently and in partnership with Higher Education institutions. As well as the more traditional honours degree programmes and higher nationals, the college has been at the forefront in developing and promoting innovative and unique Foundation Degrees and vocational courses.
Most of the degree courses are offered at the fully-equipped, multimillion pound University Centre in Rhos-on-Sea, with some university-level programmes also available at the Bangor, Llangefni and Dolgellau campuses. In an exciting recent development, Grŵp Llandrillo Menai has been approved and validated by Bangor University to also deliver university-level / higher education courses on its Rhyl campus.
Many of the courses on offer are vocational qualifications developed in consultation with employers, to equip learners with the skills and knowledge that employers require and to make progression into employment easier. Often, the full-time courses are delivered over two days per week, helping learners fit their studies around work and family commitments.
Thousands of graduates from across the UK have missed out on the traditional end of course celebrations over the past two summers due to Covid restrictions, but Grŵp Llandrillo Menai students recently took part in a virtual Graduation Ceremony online, which celebrated the achievements of 800 individual graduates from 2020 and 2021.
One of this year’s graduates, 21-year-old Lucy Sharpe from Dolwyddelan, had two reasons to celebrate: not only did she gain her BA (Hons) Creative and Broadcast Media degree, but she also spent a few weeks working on the set off ITV series 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!’ during her studies.
Join the 1000s of degree students who have achieved their personal and academic goals at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai!
