Stafford Crest Colours
The birthplace of Stafford Global was in Dubai, UAE with the red and white crest colours a homage to the country, as they mirror the national colours and the related symbolism of the UAE flag. In the UAE flag the colour red represents strength and courage, with the colour white representing honesty. As pioneers of distance learning and online education, Stafford strongly believes in pushing towards a future where affordable, quality education is easily accessible to anyone. This is a vision Stafford strives to achieve ethically, honestly and with complete transparency.
Stafford Crest Parchment
Parchment was used as a writing medium for nearly 2,000 years and is symbolic of knowledge and learning, along with being evocative of the higher education degree a student receives upon graduation. The words AD MELIORA are inscribed in Latin on the Stafford parchment, followed by the roman numerals MCMXCIII. AD MELIORA translates as “towards better things” and it was chosen because a solid education always leads to a better and brighter future. MCMXCIII is the number 1993, the year in which Stafford Global was founded.
Stafford Crest Knot & Stafford Lion
The knot on the Stafford crest is known as the Staffordshire knot and represents the birthplace of our founder, Phil Marsh, who also named the company. The white lion is the national emblem of England, where most of our university partners are based, and also stands for the strength of the UK education system.
The three stars on the crest stand for the three core tenets of Stafford Global: Quality Education, Accessibility & Affordability, Student Support. At Stafford Global we believe in providing high quality distance learning and online courses at affordable prices to individuals who wish to pursue a higher education; ones who often have personal or work commitments that do not allow for a great deal of flexibility. We take great pride in the care and expertise our Higher Education Consultants provide in guiding and supporting these students to make the right choice for their educational and career needs.
