Glyndŵr University

Glyndŵr University is a vibrant, friendly place where each student's learning and future is given personal attention. The facilities are excellent, as you'd expect from a university that values the spirit of enterprise and puts employability at the heart of everything it does. Courses are designed to provide employers with exactly what they're looking for and many have been created with their direct input. Support, both in helping students plan their careers and their lives outside of the world of work, is always on hand via our careers team, as well as other expert advisers and counsellors.

Coleg Cambria

Situated in the heart of Wrexham town centre, Coleg Cambria is a tertiary college with approximately 3,000 full-time and 8,000 part-time students. There are two campuses, one on Grove Park Road in the centre of Wrexham and another half a mile away on Bersham Road where the Engineering and Construction courses take place. The College also has some 13 outreach centres, many based in local schools, which have programmes of day-time and evening courses.

Open University in Wales

The Open University is one of the largest providers of part-time higher education in the UK. In almost every subject area, more people choose to study part-time with the OU than with any other university. For employers and individual students alike, whatever your learning and training needs, our local staff are available to provide information and advice to guide you onto the right course.

Grants and bursaries for adult learners

Adult learners can apply for grants and bursaries to help pay for courses and training. You usually don't have to pay this money back.

Volunteering Wales

Volunteering describes what people choose to do in their spare time, without pay, that benefits other people or contributes to the services or amenities within the community.
