International Partners

Our International Partners are at the heart of our support for international students


With many years’ experience of welcoming international students from around the world, we have a clear understanding of the needs and expectations of international learners and international partners.  

We deliver a wide range of programmes and services including teacher training, English language, academic, vocational and sport programmes. 

In addition, many of our overseas partners send groups of students to spend some time in Cardiff on one of our popular Summer or Winter School Programmes

CAVC China

In 2017, CAVC launched an international Campus in Shanghai in partnership with a Chinese Education Group, delivering an IGCSE and AS Level programme together with embedded English language training. Students spend two years in China before progressing to Cardiff for the final A2 year of their programme.  

The first cohort of students progressed onto leading UK universities in September 2019.  Also in this year a  second CAVC international Campus opened in Changzhou with a third site in Pinghu due to open in 2020. Our China network of international Campuses continues to grow with over 150 students enrolled.

Partnership in the Middle East 

In the Middle East, we have welcomed groups of students from the UAE to study at our world famous International Centre for Aerospace Training (ICAT) for the past 15 years.

Football Class Academy

Established in 2018, CAVC working with our European partner provides a 9-month programme designed to support aspiring footballers through an enriching experience integrating theory and practice in sport coaching, sports science and English language. The academy is located at our sector leading International Sports Campus in Cardiff. Academy students are trained by FA Licence coaches and have the opportunity to play competitively for the college and in the national league. 

Partnership Ethos 

Developing sustainable international partnerships is key to our strategy and we are constantly exploring opportunities for further development with like-minded schools, colleges and organisations who share our values and beliefs in the delivery of high quality, student focused programmes of study.
