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.

Impor­tant Information

From August 2019, fund­ing deci­sions for edu­ca­tion became devolved to local gov­ern­ment in sev­er­al coun­ties of England.

This trans­fer of fund­ing from cen­tral gov­ern­ment to com­bined author­i­ties has cre­at­ed fun­da­men­tal changes to areas that we as an edu­ca­tion and train­ing provider can oper­ate in. 

We regret that we are no longer able to pro­vide Lev­el 2 cours­es for free, to the fol­low­ing com­bined author­i­ty areas: Greater Man­ches­ter, Liv­er­pool City, Tees Val­ley, West Mid­lands, Sheffield City, West Mid­lands, West of Eng­land and the North of Tyne Com­bined Author­i­ty (NTCA). If you are unsure if your post­code falls into one of the com­bined author­i­ties, please email enquiries@​stamford.​ac.​uk and we’ll be able to help you. 


  • Learn­ers must be aged 19 years or over as at 31/08/2022
  • Learn­ers must have lived in the EU for the last three years 
  • Learn­ers must cur­rent­ly reside in Eng­land, in a post code out­side of Greater Man­ches­ter, Liv­er­pool City, Tees Val­ley, West Mid­lands, Sheffield City, Greater Lon­don, West of Eng­land and the North of Tyne Com­bined Author­i­ty (NTCA).

Please note: You may be asked to pro­vide evi­dence of eligibility.
