"I didn't think I could do it but the support I received really helped"
Peter Davies - June 2014
For the past few years I have struggled with the idea of what I wanted to achieve and study in life. Living in a very rural area with limited educational opportunities makes it even more difficult. After finally realizing what I wanted to study, and after discovering DistanceLearningCentre.com, I realized that this was the perfect opportunity to achieve entry into University.
As a person who likes to work independently, DistanceLearningCentre.com could not have been better in this aspect. The Social Science course allowed me to work at my own pace and to dive into the work whenever I wanted to. However, any time I needed help, my tutors, who were extremely friendly and approachable, responded very quickly to my concerns.
The materials are straightforward, the assignments are interesting and the feedback received improved my confidence and really motivated me to continue on to the next assignment.
I am extremely grateful for DistanceLearningCentre.com for providing this opportunity for people like me who cannot study in traditional colleges, even if they wanted to. I exceeded all of my expectations and I am excited to be studying International Relations at University this September, something that I could not have done without DistanceLearningCentre.com. Thank you!

I have worked for a bank for the last 11 years and have fancied a career change for quite some time. I looked into doing access courses at college however none of them were able to fit around work and my 5 year old son. I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com and the Access to Health Professions course sounded perfect!
It hasn't been easy that's for sure but with the help of my 2 fantastic tutors I completed the course in 8 months! There were times where I didn't think I could do it but the support I received really helped!
I have now been accepted at university to study Operating Department Practice from September and I can't wait! Without DistanceLearningCentre.com this would not have been possible!
Anyone who is unsure whether to takes the plunge - just go for it! It takes a lot of hard work and determination but it is worth it! Follow your dreams!

Before starting my course at DistanceLearningCentre.com I was working in a call centre doing sales, I started studying my Access to Nursing in October 2013 with the hope to achieve high marks to attend university starting September 2014. I thought DistanceLearningCentre.com provided a lot of support when I needed it and helped me where possible.
I have completed my course to a high standard in May 2014 and have been offered a place to study Mental Health Nursing at Keele University. I would recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anybody looking to further their education.
Holly Thorpe - June 2014
For some time I had been looking for a way to pursue my dream career of being a midwife. When the opportunity arose for me to take redundancy from my long term career in financial services I decided to take the risk.
DistanceLearningCentre.com gave me the opportunity to study alongside my work and raise a family. I must admit it was tough at times and I found motivation and personal drive that I never knew I possessed, but it was totally worth it.
Now, when I am made redundant in a few weeks time, I can leave in the knowledge that I am prepared and ready to apply to study at university in 2015. My tutors have been so supportive and were on hand if I needed them and provided valuable feedback throughout. Thanks for the opportunity and experience I have learned so much about myself!

I've always wanted to be a Midwife but left school and went straight into work. After having my 3 girls, I felt I had even more to offer the role but there was only me who could make it happen. I couldn't fit in college-based studying alongside being a mum and working so looked into online courses-even checking DistanceLearningCentre.com was a proper accredited course (and yes it's accepted and approved by universities).
I started 18/02/13 and completed by 29/01/14. My tutors were fab; they gave me time, patience, and support even through my dozy moments and general moaning!
I am now ready to apply to uni and am looking into taking a career break to study. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and live by the motto 'No Regrets'. If you have the commitment then you can do it, life's too short to just think about things. I have and will continue to recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com and I enjoyed my units as I had chosen them. I now think of my tutors as friends, and the financial side was ok as I paid monthly.
So pleased, onwards and upwards................
