Where do I study? Study takes place at Coleg Llandrillo or Coleg Menai, part of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, one of the largest and best Government-funded colleges in the UK, offering competitive fees and scholarships. Most of our international students study at our Rhos-on-Sea and Bangor Campuses on academic programmes such as A Levels, the International Baccalaureate or Pathways – Access to Higher Education programmes. If you choose to study English, then you will study at our Bangor Campus, located in what is known as the “City of Learning”. Here there are students from all over the world, so you can share experiences as you learn. These two campuses are located on the coast of North Wales. This region is known for its beautiful mountain and coastal scenery and is very popular with people from all over the world as a place to visit. This also makes it a special place to study, where you can enjoy clean air and a healthy environment in a friendly, safe community.

There are endless opportunities to enjoy the area when you are not studying. Near to the campuses there are plenty of shops, supermarkets, sports centres, swimming pools, bars and restaurants to choose from. Nightlife options include a multi-screen cinema, bars and clubs. You could also visit the many tourist attractions or take part in a range of sports, including swimming, canoeing, horse riding, mountain biking, golf and football, or even try something more adventurous like Europe’s longest and fastest zipline or surfing at Surf Snowdonia, the world’s first public artificial wave garden.

North Wales has a temperate climate and it rarely gets very hot or very cold. Average temperatures range from 5°C to 25°C. May, June and July are the driest and sunniest months and it rarely snows, except in the mountains. There is a main railway line running along the North Wales coast, so you can easily travel by train to many places throughout the United Kingdom, including London. The nearest international airport is Manchester.

Dang Ngoc from Vietnam completed one year of A Levels instead of two, an option available in Wales, but no longer in England. For his second year of study he wanted to specialise in Business so took a pathway programme in this area. He now studies Logistics and Transport Management at Greenwich University in London, to help him play an important role in his family business back in Ho Chi Minh City. Dang says: “The teachers are absolutely fantastic. They really help you to do your best. Llandudno is a small, peaceful town with loads of amazing sightseeing and historical places near. If you are looking for excitement at the weekend you can travel to Chester, 1 hour away. I enjoyed staying with two hosts. They give you tips and experiences on how to live in the UK. Living with a host is an opportunity to help you improve your English and become more British.”
