The school prides itself on a student-centered classroom, wherein instructors accommodate different learning styles while still meeting set curriculum standards. Teachers are also trained in career development techniques to help prepare students for the work force.
Stratford offers programs that stress relevant work skills, have an international scope, and develop critical thinking. It awards diplomas, certificates, associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in high-demand fields. Areas of study include business administration, computer information systems, culinary arts and hospitality, health sciences, and nursing, with courses designed to feature advanced technology, hands-on labs, and traditional educational methods. Several of these undergraduate and graduate programs are also available online, providing a convenient, flexible option for those students looking to complete their education in a timely manner and who are self-motivated. Online courses also provide the same academic rigor as those you’d find in the classroom. Programs may also stress internships to help transition students to the working world. These are especially relevant to those students who are switching careers and need to build up their resume.
Stratford University is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. It has held this distinction since 2002.
Applicants to Stratford must submit an application, academic transcripts, and, if required by the program, proof of language proficiency, and GRE or GMAT test scores. International students must also show proof of financial support and a copy of their passport.
