You don’t have to go away to university to get a great qualification!

So here are FIVE reasons why you should choose University Centre Stamford…

1 Fewer financial worries

When surveyed, at least 75% of our university level course students said they had chosen University Centre Stamford because it was their local college and so made it less expensive than going away to university.

2. Small tutorial classes

Our small class sizes and supportive staff mean you can be assured of a learning environment where you matter. You’ll have easy access to your tutors who are all well-qualified with industry-related experience.

3. Support when you need it

Making the commitment to study is a major one but we are highly experienced in helping students keep on track. We can provide you with information and advice on benefits, grants and loans, support funds for financial emergencies, confidential counselling and professional careers guidance.

4. Facilities

We offer state-of-the-art facilities, our services are modern and all readily available for our university level students. We’ve also recently invested in a new multi-million pound state-of-the-art Sports Centre – Borderville.

5. Easy travel

Access is quick and easy from across the region with excellent rail and road links from the north, south, east and west. Cheap rail fares from Leicester, Cambridge, Peterborough and Oakham are all available. Our buses can also help you get here!
