Your application

Find my course

Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Student Support

Student support is central to everything we do.

The College Student Services office is locally centrally behind reception, and provides a whole range of services to provide support for you whilst you are studying with us. The team includes:

  • The Welfare Team

  • Counselling

A professional college counsellor is available to support you during term time on an appointment basis, arranged by the welfare team.

The service is strictly confidential and can help you deal with any personal problems during your time at college. The one-to-one sessions can help with concerns about college work, family relationships, personal relationships, self-esteem or a host of other problems. Our counsellor also works with various external agencies and organisations to provide additional, specialist support where necessary.

  • Student Advisors

When you start College, you will be allocated a Student Advisor who will help you to settle into college life and work closely with you, your lecturers and your parents to help you achieve your goals.

They will help you manage your time, develop your study skills and help build your confidence during regular tutorial and one-to-one sessions.

You will also have the chance to experience a range of tutorials and meet visiting guest speakers who will introduce you to topics such as:

  • personal and mental health

Our Study Centre

During your first few weeks in College your course tutors will be getting to know you and finding out about the skills you have and where you need extra help in order to successfully complete your course.

Sometimes you may need extra help with literacy, numeracy, exam skills, writing an assignment or any other problem that may be worrying you. We will assess whether in class or one-to-one support in the Study Centre would be beneficial. We have experienced staff who will work with you and your course tutors, to ensure that you get the support you need.

When you first come to Stamford College you will be asked to take part in an assessment of your reading, writing and maths, as this will help us to make sure we are offering you the right support and help. You will have a chance to speak with one of the Study Centre team at your interview.
