Experiencing difficulties applying?
Due to the volume of telephone calls we are currently receiving, you may be experiencing difficulties applying for your course. For creative arts courses in Oxford, please contact Lisa Dwyer directly on 01865 551206 or email LDwyer@ocvc.ac.uk who will advise on application information and course availability.
As well as popular courses which we run each year, we create new ones too. We listen to students, gather feedback and offer courses shaped by your comments.
Our workshops, studios, labs, salons and kitchens are industry-standard environments for professional career training. This is where you will learn too.
With four campuses across Oxfordshire, you can learn locally. Campuses are easy to find and well-placed for travel and amenities. We have designated disabled parking spaces next to the College buildings.
Enjoy the buzz
Why not visit our cafes, restaurants and hair and beauty salons on campus? They offer great value.
Note about fees and minimum student numbers
Please note that learning-for-leisure courses are for adults (19 years and above) and are not available to 16-18 year olds. All fees are correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
Courses need a minimum number of students for them to run. Oxford & Cherwell Valley College reserves the right to cancel a course if not enough people enrol, and it reserves the right to change course details if necessary. Please do not purchase any materials or equipment for your course until you have written confirmation that the course will run.
