Degrees and Higher Education - Grŵp Llandrillo Menai

Degrees and Higher Education

We offer an extensive range of Degrees and university level qualifications across North Wales, including Foundation and Honours Degrees validated by major Welsh and English universities.

We work in partnership with a number of universities in Wales, including: Bangor University, and Glyndŵr University; and in England, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

Many of our vocational qualifications are developed in consultation with employers, to equip you with the skills and knowledge that employers require and to make progression into employment easier.

Experienced tutors, small classes, partnerships with major employers and industry-standard vocational facilities provide students with excellent learning experiences.

Find your course

Studying for a degree can be life changing in many ways:

  • Better career and promotion opportunities
  • Greater earning potential
  • Increased knowledge and skills
  • Increased confidence
  • New friends
How to apply

If you are already in employment but looking to change career or gain promotion, then look no further as our full-time and part-time course timetables are work and family-friendly. This will make it easier for you to combine studying with your other commitments.

Various financial assistance schemes can significantly reduce the fees payable for both full-time and part-time degrees.

If you already live in North Wales, you may save thousands of pounds by studying with us, as research has shown that a student who studies locally saves, on average, £17,500 compared to someone who goes away to university.

Whatever course you choose, you can be sure of excellent tuition and personal attention. We look forward to welcoming you.

If you don’t have the formal qualifications required, an Access to Higher Education course will prepare you for university level study. For adults who are interested in studying for a degree but have been out of education for a while, short, one-week refresher courses - 'Looking Forward to Higher Education' - are offered each year.
