I knew I wanted to be a Midwife, but living on an Island with limited adult education provision, I thought I'd never be able to get the Access Qualifications to make my dream come true and get my place at University. I found DistanceLearningCentre.com on a last ditch search of the Internet and it seemed the perfect solution, I could still work and get my qualification at the same time ? surely this was too good to be true? It wasn't ? it was everything I'd hoped for.
I'm going to Oxford Brookes to study Midwifery in September and I think the help and advice I got from my tutor was pivotal in my success in getting a place this year. Most universities view a distance learning course as a sign of dedication.
Although it's had it's moments (I don't recommend trying to work full time, do the course, and move house all in the same week!!!), the work has been fun and enjoyable with plenty of great modules to keep you thinking. My tutor has been brilliant, with weekly phone calls as well as e-mail contact to make sure you're keeping on the right track! Thank you DistanceLearningCentre.com - I couldn't have done it without you!!

I had originally signed up for an ICS Biology course but discovered that I would need to sit an exam and had to arrange for an external establishment in which to sit it and to perform the practical work in, but could find nowhere within 50 miles of my home which would allow me to do this.
Very disappointed I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com through Netmums web forum and immediately signed up. I have not been disappointed. Not only has this given me the qualification I needed in the time frame I wanted to do it in, but also has allowed me to meet other people going through the course and university application process.
I have also met people who will be at the same university as me in September and really feel that this is all down to the wonderful support of the DistanceLearningCentre.com tutors and the other students. It has been a great experience and I would thoroughly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone. Thank you!

I've just finished an Access to Psychology Diploma and I have a place at Liverpool University or John Moore's waiting for me. The course has been a challenge but totally worth it! It is the ideal solution and perfect example to show you can work and earn whilst gaining a qualification to enable you to progress further. Throughout the course the tutors have been very patient and supportive. Thanks DistanceLearningCentre.com!!!!

After leaving Aviva I decided to return to education and pursue my ambition of being a Corporate Lawyer. My careers advisor put me in touch with DistanceLearningCentre.com. The College's web pages provided me with a plethora of information about the courses available and testimonials of previous students. The course I chose was Access to Psychology.
The added advantage of studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com was that I was able to fit studying around my life. The course materials and assessments were available to download from the website and I could complete these at my own pace. Any deadlines were negotiated between my tutor and me.
I have had regular contact with my tutor who was a great support; always been a calming influence when I have been concerned about various elements of my course and my forthcoming exam!! In September I am going to the University of Sheffield to study Law.
I have really enjoyed studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com and would recommend it to anyone, as it helps you develop the necessary skills required for independent study at University.

I never in a million years thought that I would be capable of acheiving what I done in the past 18 months and it is all thanks to DistanceLearningCentre.com. My tutors have been fantastic. I am not the person I used to be, with little confidence; I have confidence in all my work and have learnt such great things that I can not only carry through my university course but also life.
I loved the flexibility with DistanceLearningCentre.com; with the two challenging children I have this really fitted in perfectly with my life. Even in moments when I doubted myself with a really challenging topic on a personal level my fantastic tutor gave me the confidence and new self esteem to see me through it.
I have every confidence that I can achieve all my dreams that I have always wanted to and become a fully qualified Nurse; and I put this all down to DistanceLearningCentre.com and its fantastic tutors - a big thank you again DistanceLearningCentre.com.
