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.

Welcome to Media Make Up

We hope you are staying safe and having a great summer break. We are looking forward to seeing you in college for the next part of your education at New College Stamford.

Please ensure you complete your Level 2 or Level 3 Summer Assignment which will have been emailed to you. This must be submitted in September. It is important that you read the assignment brief and the marking guidelines carefully as they will support you to complete this.

Also, please work through the activities in the Welcome Pack as these will help you to familiarise yourself with your course.

If you have any urgent queries or concerns before commencing college, please don’t hesitate to contact the course co-ordinators/lecturers by email below:




Yours sincerely,

Laura, Fay and Justine.

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.

Your induction into your Hair and Media Make-up course is yet to be confirmed, as this is dependent on Government guidelines, but as soon as we know, we will contact you.

We do know that it will be mostly conducted online and we are busy ensuring you will still have access to all the information you need remotely. More information about where to find induction and how it will work will be provided at your enrolment later in August 2020.


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

There is a possibility of a late night for your programme and we will be able to let you know what evening when we give out the timetables at the beginning of September.

The evening session would be finished by 7.30pm. This is mandatory, therefore you will be expected to attend weekly until the end of the academic year.

Google Classroom

At College we use Google Classroom to work digitally with students. It is where you will find all work, tasks and assessment information. Please download the app on your phones.

For Level 2 Hair and Media Make up we have two groups, Paris and Milan. Once you have completed Induction, you will be informed of which group you are in and given a code for that group to be able to use google classroom. Until then we will use a General Level 2 Group Code to give you information.

Your General Google Classroom Course Code for Level 2 is: frphpfp
