Joel Davies - June 2011
I have just finished my Access to HE course with DistanceLearningCentre.com in Psychology. I have always had a passion for learning, although when I decided to return to education I found it was quite hard, just turning 19 and in employment.
I found DistanceLearningCentre.com when I was searching for qualifications. It looked fantastic and I enrolled immediately. The course itsself was tough, although with the support, guidance and inspiration through others, such as my tutor, you soon realise what you are capable of.
I now have a place at Nottingham Trent University to study a BSc in Psychology, planning for a career in Clinical Psychology. I would recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone who wants to chase their dream and having the support and guidance in doing so.

DistanceLearningCentre.com gave me the opportunity to reflect on my educational development during my Access Course in social work, opening my eyes to the real challenges that social workers have to face.
I enjoyed the various topics which touched on psychology, social carers, recent case studies and more. The Access Course has given me the strength to a prospective future where I have secured a place at the University of East London on a BA Social Work. Thank you DistanceLearningCentre.com.

I started Adult Nursing at University in September 2011 after completing my Access Diploma in June. I was given an elderly medical ward for my first placement and I absolutely loved it! It was working with elderly people who were in the transition of rehabilitation to home from hospital care, so it's been a lot of manual handling and bed bathing etc but I've really enjoyed it! Old people are so nice and so supportive of students and it's been heart warming to help them and receive gratitude for what you've done! I'm still aiming at midwifery but I've found nursing to be more fulfilling than I anticipated it to be! I'm on placement at the moment and on delivery suite tomorrow; very excited!
Wolverhampton University is one of the 7 universities piloting the new curriculum set by the NMC and we are doing things a whole different way round but I have found that my first year placements (being on different wards and settings) has been immense and I have learnt so much just in my first year it's amazing at how much I know already!
I would like to (again) thank my tutor and DistanceLearningCentre.com for all your help and support with the Access course and assisting me on the road to my new career! Being able to study from home gave me the opportunity to complete the course (that was impossible for me to be able to do at college because of childcare etc) with no financial hardship or struggle with academic capability. I managed to get through all my modules with no pressure and on my own initiative which has given me perfect experience for planning and self-discipline at university! I have recommended you and will continue to do so to anyone who is thinking of taking the career leap. One of my friends is actually a current DistanceLearningCentre.com student, so I recommended well! It's been the best decision I've ever made and I'm sincerely grateful to you all at DistanceLearningCentre.com! Academically I have done well, for my work so far I have 2x B grades and 3x C grades and my tutors have said that I write beautifully, so thankyou for all your help advice and assistance!

Feedback from February 2012 after starting University in September 2011. I wanted to let you know how valuable the DistanceLearningCentre.com biology modules have been for me. They have really stood me in good stead. A third of all the work we do as first year midwifery students is pure biology and I have found that most of what I'm learning this year I have already done in greater depth through my DistanceLearningCentre.com biology modules last year. It's really useful because, as you know, there is no hand-holding at uni and we are expected to find out for ourselves anything that we don't understand in the lectures. Many of the girls on my course are finding the biology really difficult to understand because the access courses they did at college didn't teach biology in such depth. However, for me most of the time the lectures are just a refresher and I go home, look through my DistanceLearningCentre.com work and it all clicks into place.
