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.

Welcome to Air and Defence

Welcome Event 2020 Air Defence Front Cover Page 1

The information and activities in these welcome packs is mainly addressed to new students, but returning students are welcome to look through the pages and read through the information below for any questions you may have.

Hello and welcome to the Air and Defence College (ADC) at Stamford College. Sara Gibson is your course coordinator and is very much looking forward to working with you over the next academic year. As you read this we are busy planning your ADC programme for 2020 – 21 in partnership with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and their industrial partners. I know many of you have been busy preparing yourself too, making contact with me and taking the opportunities presented to you.

This booklet has been designed with that in mind, so please watch the RAF ADC Welcome Video and our NCS ADC 2020 Trailer linked within, then work your way through the activities and research tasks so that you’re ready to go when term starts!


All enrolment takes place online in the comfort of your own home.

In early August, all students with an offer of a place to study with us will be emailed a 'Getting Ready for College' pack. This will contain all the instructions, forms and information you need to enrol online. As well as further guidance on how to apply for transport, financial support and when your induction will be.

As long as you have access to a device (mobile, phone, tablet or computer) and a connection to the internet (4G or wifi) you can enrol anytime from Thursday 20th August (returning students will be able to enrol earlier and will be send instructions on how to do so via email).

More FAQs and information about enrolment can be found on our ‘Enrolling at College’ page.

First Day and Induction

To access your induction (including information on your first day and timetables), you will need to log into our Google Education system using your college Google account.

This is different to your application and enrolment log in.

Please sign out of any personal Google accounts you may be logged into beforehand at

Your email is (example:

Your default password is PE91XA!!

After successfully logging in, you can then access the college induction website at:

Due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak will be delivering the majority of induction online to maximise your safety. However there will be an opportunity to meet your new tutors and classmates with social distancing in place to help you settle in to College life.


Timetables will be issued on completion of your induction (please note this may change and will be confirmed when we meet).

We expect a significant proportion of your teaching and learning to still take place online for the majority of courses, and if you do have lessons on campus you can be confident that your safety and wellbeing will be paramount from the moment you leave the house to the time that you return home.

Studying Remotely via Google Classroom

We have been using G Suite for Education for over a year and it is well embedded in to our curriculum. This has allowed us to move to remote learning during the lock down confidently. G Suite allows us to teach you online or offline, anytime, and on any device to support and connect with you either one-on-one or with the whole class.

We utilise Classroom to enable us to manage your course work, assignments, and grading all in one place so you can be confident your experience is as high in quality online, as it is on campus.

You will be provided with full instructions on how to access your Google Classroom at induction and your tutors are always on hand to support you and ensure you are doing everything you should be to succeed on your course.

Trips and Visits

We hope to be able to continue trips and visits for 2020/21 once we have more guidance on the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.

There be an annual cost of £150 paid online via our wisepay payment portal and this can be paid in 3 instalments due September, January and March. This fee will cover transportation and other visit costs.
