With a wealth of experience, we are experts in the field of providing high quality education in a caring environment.

We hope to inspire you to become lifelong learners so that you can develop the skills and determination to achieve far more than you ever expected and look forward to working with you during your foundation year.

Best wishes

Phil McPherson, Assistant Principal, Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you as a Staffordshire University student studying at one of our partner institutions. You may be studying closer to home, or studying a specialised course that matches your interests, but you are as much a student of the University as those students who study with us on our main University campuses.

The Student Recruitment, Admissions and Partnerships Service and the academic Schools at the University work very closely with our partner institutions to ensure that you, our students, have a great experience whilst studying your Staffordshire University award.

I wish you all the best for the coming academic year.

Sapreena Kumari, Executive Director of Student Recruitment, Admissions and Partnerships, Staffordshire University
