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.

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).
