"The forum and social media groups mean that there is still a great sense of camaraderie and peer support"

If like me you wish to attend University but you don't have the grades required; then studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com is a great way to acquire the grades you need. So long as you are dedicated and willing to spend time completing the work then go for it!

I work full time and also have a mortgage so leaving work to study was never an option, DistanceLearningCentre.com provided me with the opportunity to study in my own time and achieve goals I never thought I would or could ever achieve. I feel very proud of myself for completing the Access to Higher Education course whilst working full time and also in gaining merits and distinctions for the assignments. There were times I thought I couldn't do it but there is always light at the end of a tunnel and I made it!!

I applied to two Universities and got into both. I have chosen to study at Staffordshire University to become an Adult Nurse. Good luck to all who are planning on studying, you can do it! (Jun 15)

Since high school I have been working in mental hospital healthcare. From healthcare assistant I have become a Rehabilitation Assistant on Neuropsychiatry Unit for Adolescence with Brain Injuries.

I decided to follow my passion and pursue career in Mental Health Nursing. I was able to work full time and complete my Access course through DistanceLearningCentre.com.

DistanceLearningCentre.com has helped me to gain the necessary qualifications and place at the University of Northampton. I am ready for September. Excited? Very! Thanks DistanceLearningCentre.com! (Jun 15)

The forum and social media groups mean that there is still a great sense of camaraderie and peer support - Kate Cusack

I decided to study with DistanceLearningCentre.com because I wanted to complete my Access Course whilst still working full time and it was a perfect fit to my lifestyle. The tutors are knowledgeable and helpful and I found myself really enjoying the course, it felt great to be learning! Although you don't have fellow students to talk to face to face, both the DistanceLearningCentre.com forum and the social media groups mean that there is still a great sense of camaraderie and peer support and you will find a diverse range people on the same journey as you.

I am going to university in September to study Midwifery and could not have done it without DistanceLearningCentre.com. I would highly recommend them to anyone who, like me, has been out of education for a significant period of time because, as well as allowing me to gain the grades I need to meet my university offer, the course has given me a refresher in independent study and taught me valuable skills that I will use at university.

I was ecstatic to find that they provided the exact modules I was looking for - Jamie Taylor

Before I started my course with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I was at university studying nursing. Although the nursing profession was excellent and I'd had some great experiences, I had inadvertently developed a new passion for Diagnostic Radiography. Subsequently, I had made the decision to leave my nursing studying and pursue Radiography.

Upon reapplying to university, I was told that my previous Access qualification was no longer valid. Determined to do whatever it took, I decided to retake the Access course but I didn't want to go back to college. Thankfully, a friend who had previously completed a course via distance learning told me about DistanceLearningCentre.com. I was ecstatic to find that they provided the exact modules I was looking for, and so I enrolled at the earliest opportunity.

Reflecting on my time with them − from my first day to my last − I have received excellent support from my tutors. They always provided positive feedback on my assessments which − as time went on − enabled me grow more confident academically. With that said, distance learning is very much self-directed, just as it is at university, and so it is very important to know what your individual learning style is and study in a way that helps you retain information. The course isn't easy, so you need to be determined, self-motivated, and able to manage your time well. However, with the help of your tutor, peers, the learning materials and some self-belief you will get through it.

I am very proud to have been offered a place to return to university this year to study Diagnostic Radiography. It was hard work to get back to this point but all that hard work has paid off.

To anyone who is thinking about studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com; I would say take a chance, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. These courses really can open doors to careers that you may think are far be beyond you're reach. Well, they're not. If you want it, go for it. (Jun 15)

Studying has awakened me as a person and I feel so much more prepared - Luisa Rogers

As a busy Mum and a HCA working shifts I could only dream about going to University to train as a Nurse. As a mature student you feel as if you have so much to give but going to college once a week for me would have been impossible. Studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com has enabled me to achieve the diploma in my own time around my commitments.

The course has been hard at times, however the support of my family and from the tutors has been amazing and I want to say a big thank you to them for this. Studying has awakened me as a person and I feel so much more prepared for the demands of University and the future. For the time being I am still with DistanceLearningCentre.com, trying to improve on my GCSE grades. I will then be in a position to finally go and become the Nurse I have always wanted to be.

If you are thinking "I could never do that" then I would say to you if I can do it you definitely can. The only person stopping you is you. (Jun 15)
