Grŵp Llandrillo Menai's three colleges have announced that they are now accepting applications for the new term in September 2021. And to help you get more of a feel about the wide range of courses, facilities and support available, the Grŵp is running a Virtual Open Event, which begins on February 22.

The Grŵp, which consists of Coleg Llandrillo, Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor and Coleg Menai, has hundreds of courses, from BTECs, to A Levels, to apprenticeships, to degrees, to suit every need and to help you fulfil your potential.

Perhaps you are in Year 11 and currently contemplating what to do when you finish your GCSEs? Or you are rethinking your plans to go away to university, and thinking of studying for your degree a little bit closer to home? Or maybe you discovered a new passion or interest during the lockdown and want to study the subject you love? 

In 2020, despite the pandemic, students across the Grŵp's twelve campuses achieved remarkable personal goals and successes. 

  • A Level student Sohaib Hassan gained an A* in History after studying for the full A-level in only 12 months, enabling him to accept an unconditional offer for Oxford University 
  • Media degree student Lucy Sharpe, was "in dreamland" after she was chosen to work on UK television's biggest show of the year: 'I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here'! 
  • Student Ambassador Tirion Thomas, who has just completed her Health and Social Care Level 3 studies at the Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, Dolgellau campus, was announced the winner of the BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year's 'Unsung Hero' award

The Virtual Open Event, which launches on Monday 22 February, is just the place to find out more about how College can help you to achieve your goals. Each of our subject areas will be hosting an informative session, delivered by our knowledgeable and highly-qualified staff. In each session, you can expect to find out all about the courses available, the state-of-the art facilities where you will study, and the excellent* support you will receive. (*Estyn, 2017)

You can also listen to what our current students have to say about their time at college on our dedicated Virtual Open Event mini-site, search our wide range of courses available and apply directly through our website. And what's more, our friendly and helpful Learner Services staff will be on hand to guide you through the application process.
