Overview

You don’t have to go away to university to get a great qualification! So here are FIVE reasons why you should choose Higher Education Centre Stamford…

1: EXCELLENT TEACHING AND LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

According to the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), Higher Education Centre Stamford is among the best places to study at University Level in the UK. In 2017, we were awarded the TEF Silver award in recognition of the excellent teaching and learning opportunities we provide for our students.

2: PAY LESS, GAIN MORE

Choosing to study with us can save you tens of thousands of pounds. Our fees are up to £3000 per year less than most universities, but that’s not all. The average UK student spends £26,970 over a three-year period on living expenses*. If you study without moving away then you can avoid this debt. 

3: SMALL CLASS SIZES

Our class sizes rarely exceed 15 students, meaning your tutor has more time to support you and you have better access to resources. We also provide tailored one-to-one academic support and careers advice to all of our students meaning you have the best opportunity to succeed in your studies and life beyond.

4: TRANSFORMING THE PROGRESS OF YOUR CAREER

We understand that employers are looking for practical, hands-on experience from the graduates they hire. That’s why our courses have employer involvement and work experience, and are delivered by lecturers who have spent time working in the sectors they teach in. This approach has resulted in 89% of our students being in further study or employment within six months of graduating**. You will be supported in CV writing, interview skills and self-promotion techniques to enable you to gain that all important experience required to break into employment.

5: SPECIALIST EQUIPMENT AND RESOURCES

We provide industry standard facilities to ensure you learn on the same equipment you will typically use in your future career. From state-of-the-art Apple Mac and PC suites, to free WiFi for all and iPads you can borrow, there is everything you need to study for success.
