This is a list of further education colleges and sixth form colleges in Wales.

Further education colleges offer courses for adult learners, including some academic qualifications, but mainly vocational studies and work-based learning. Sixth form colleges mainly offer academic qualifications such as A Levels for people between the ages of 16 and 19.

Some further education colleges in Wales offer higher education courses such as degrees and diplomas, usually in conjunction with a nearby university.

Welsh colleges are funded primarily by the Welsh Government, with subsidised tuition fees paid by individual students or their sponsors.
