Funding and Financial Support

Our Financial Support Hub is designed to provide a clear and simplified overview of the most frequently asked questions regarding funding your course and receiving financial assistance.

Our aim is to guide you through the complexities of financial support, making the process as straightforward as possible to understand.

Full-time courses for students aged between 16 and 18 are free

Who pays fees?

The rules around course fees are complicated, they depend on age, prior learning, and your personal circumstances. As part of your application to Stamford College the Admissions Team will assess you individually and identify if you are required to pay a fee. If you are aged 19 or over, there is a chance there is a fee to pay, depending on government funding available. For all courses there are a range of funding options, these are covered in this guidance.
