International Partners

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


With more than 30 years’ experience of welcoming international students from around the world and working internationally, we have a clear understanding of the needs and expectations of international learners and our international partners.  

As well as engaging heavily with Erasmus exchange programmes in Europe, we are currently working with high schools and colleges in many key cities in China on the provision of teacher training, English language, A level support and Pre-University Foundation Programmes

Many of our overseas partners send groups of their students to spend some time in Cardiff on one of our popular Summer or Winter School Programmes

Cardiff & Vale College Shanghai Centre

In 2016 we opened our first A-Level delivery centre in Shanghai in partnership with a major Chinese education Group - Yi Jin. 

Based in the heart of Shanghai, the Cardiff and Vale College Shanghai Centre offers students the opportunity to study a 3 year A-Level Programme, the final year of which is based at the College's landmark City Centre Campus in Cardiff, the Capital City of Wales, UK.  

The Programme involves innovative Skype teaching from CAVC lecturers based in Cardiff as we as interaction with UK-based students and classes. Students in Shanghai also enjoy UK-based 'In Term Study Programmes' which provide rich cultural experiences and benefit from opportunities for interviews at a range of UK Universities.

Projects in the Middle East

In the Middle East, in addition to the delivery of teacher training and English language programmes, 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. 

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.
