Stansfield College is a specialist provider of the University of London International Programmes in Singapore since 1993, offering more than 70 subjects for the diploma and degree programmes. Stansfield College has also produced outstanding results for over 20 years with over 60 First Class Students for the University of London International Programmes. Stansfield College is also a Registered Centre of the University of London.
The Singapore Government introduced the Private Education Act in 2009 under which all non-government schools had to be re-registered under the new regulations and all aspects of these schools monitored and reviewed by the Council of Private Education (CPE).
The Edutrust certification is a voluntary quality certification for Private Education Institutions (PEI) that meet minimum benchmark requirement including providing high academic quality and student protection of fees. As a result of meeting these additional quality criteria as regulated by CPE, only the EduTrust certified PEI enjoy a high reputation and benefit that include the right to admit international students immediately by special permission under a “fast track” process from the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
Stansfield College received its 4-year EduTrust award for having achieved satisfactory to commendable performance in key areas of management and the provision of educational services.
Stansfield College was also awarded the status of ‘Singapore Quality Class for Private Education Organisation’ (SQC). The Singapore Quality Class (SQC) for Private Education Organisations, SQC-PEO, is a scheme to recognize PEOs that have attained a commendable level of performance in their journey to business excellence and to assist them to reach world-class standards of business excellence. It is based on the Singapore Quality Award Business Excellence Framework and requirements in the private education sector. Administered by SPRING Singapore, the SQC-PEO scheme serves as the industry standard for organisation excellence in the private education sector.
Stansfield was also awarded the Enterprise 50 award 5 years consecutively from 2002 to 2006 in recognition of its enterprising spirit. The Enterprise 50 awards is jointly awarded by The Business Times and KPMG and supported by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, International Enterprise Singapore, Singapore Business Federation and SPRING Singapore. The award aims to recognise privately-held companies who have contributed to economic development in Singapore and abroad.
Stansfield College has an outstanding team of lecturers who support the various programmes offered at the College. Staff members are committed to going the extra mile to provide guidance to our students. Our full-time and adjunct lecturers are dedicated to ‘simplifying the complex’ and in focusing on guiding students through the academic rigours of the syllabus and the examinations, which are set and marked to strict standards by the respective awarding bodies.
Stansfield College provides students with the option of full-time or part-time modes of study for most of its programmes. Students who require comprehensive academic support and a structured study environment are recommended to enrol on the full-time programme.
Stansfield College also recognises that adult learners, interested to pursue a part-time course of studies, prefer a schedule which allows a balance between work, personal commitments and classes. Our evening programmes are therefore designed with flexibility of pace and affordability in mind. Students on the part-time programmes usually come for classes twice a week in the evenings or weekends.
Stansfield College’s student body consists of students from over 30 countries including Europe, India, Korea, Indonesia, China, Maldives, Middle East and the US adding greatly to the educational, cultural and social experience at the College. The College supports its international students with the student visa applications and assists in finding suitable accommodation amongst its support services.
At Stansfield, we are committed to totally immersing our students in their subjects to optimise their chances of not only passing but excelling at their chosen path of studies. We provide an exceptionally high lecturer to student ratio and limit student numbers to a maximum of 30 students per class. Tutorials are conducted to follow-up on the lectures to ensure students comprehend the topics covered in the lectures. The small lecture and tutorial size allow for peer-to-peer learning, better interaction and encouraging more proactive participation from the students, and for lecturers to better assess each student and their individual learning capabilities.
The programme held at the beginning of the course is aimed to provide a smooth transition for students into their course of study as well as to acclimatise international students to local culture and living. Students will be briefed on the various administrative and academic procedures and orientate and induct the students into the culture of Stansfield College. The programme is mainly designed to provide foundation skills and familiarise students with aspects of each subject the students will be studying before the commencement of their programme.
The Intensive Revision Sessions are structured to be examination orientated and to refresh key points within each subjects so as to ensure the students are well prepared for the actual University of London Examinations. Having finished the syllabus, the Intensive Revision Sessions are usually held in the month of April, just slightly after the internal Mock Examinations and a month before the University of London International Examinations.
In the real world, people have to work alongside each other to achieve organisational goals and work place targets. Hence students at Stansfield College are exposed to similar environments and are taught the skills needed for survival at the work place such as forming and working in a collaborative relationship. Students are assigned to study groups and form the basis of our peer-to-peer teaching and learning at the College. Students are expected to meet for an hour daily as group learning plays a fundamental part to students’ individual and academic development. Group learning also helps in the pooling of knowledge and the building of learning resources with the bene¬fit of enhancing the students’ drive and motivation to learn and excel in their studies and life. We have both supervised and non-supervised study group sessions. Lecturers, tutors and student mentors usually rotate to conduct, assist and observe the supervised study group and to enhance as well as motivate the group dynamics.
