Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor

Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor (meaning in English "Meirion-Dwyfor College"), also known as CMD, is a college in Gwynedd, Wales with its main campus at Dolgellau, and it serves the areas of Meirionydd and Dwyfor. It has a bilingual language policy and offers the possibility of studying most subjects through the medium of Welsh. Since 1 April 2012, it is a constituent college of Grwp Llandrillo Menai

Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor has three main campuses at Dolgellau in Meirionnydd, Pwllheli in Dwyfor and Glynllifon (for agricultural courses) near Caernarfon. The Dolgellau campus was previously Dr Williams' School, until this closed in 1975.

Notable former pupils include singer Duffy (singer), who was elected president of the Students' union.[1]

Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor formally merged with Coleg Llandrillo on 1 April 2010 and then this new college merged with Coleg Menai in 2012 to form Grwp Llandrillo Menai. The merged organisation is one of the largest further education colleges in the UK, located at twelve campuses across four counties. Although the colleges have merged their management and have a central administration, The Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor campuses retain the Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor name.
