UHOVI provides opportunities to study locally so you don’t have to travel far to improve your skills.

UHOVI is all about improving skills and qualifications by making learning accessible locally. We work with partners across Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Torfaen, to offer university level courses delivered by supportive tutors.

Student in library

We offer a wide range of university courses from bite-sized modules to Foundation Degrees in a host of subjects. Plus businesses can benefit from work based learning to help improve knowledge and skills of staff at all levels.

If you’re thinking of doing a higher education course, then an Open Day is the ideal way to find out if a college or university is right for you.


With a number of grants, loans and allowances available to help with the cost of studying, you may find that a university course costs less than you thought.

Our courses are delivered in local colleges, community venues, at training facilities or even in your work place. Find out what’s currently on offer at a location near you.
