"Go for it, as this is possibly the best thing I have ever done"
I found my tutors helpful and knowledgeable - Hannah Jones
Fab5 Award Nominee
Completing my access diploma with DistanceLearningCentre.com enabled me to gain a qualification that I wouldn't have been able to do normally with my busy and unpredictable working hours. I found my tutors helpful and knowledgeable and the new assessment style easy to follow.
I found the forum great for getting advice from other students, and the grading criteria clear enabling me to aim for distinction. Overall, although there were times when it was difficult to juggle my studying with work, I really enjoyed it and am proud of what I have achieved. (Jun 15)
You never feel like you are alone and the tutors have made this journey an achievable one - Jane Cooke
I have been working in Childcare and raising my two children and felt it was the right time to move forward. After not studying for over twenty years it was very daunting but also exciting at the thought that I can actually fulfil my dream. I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com and found the support amazing. You never feel like you are alone and the tutors have made this journey an achievable one. I starting in March 2014 and it has been hard work but very rewarding as you start to receive your grades and feedback from the tutors. I have completed the access to HE Diploma (Nursing, Midwifery and Health Professions) while still working fulltime and running a family while my husband works away, so distance learning can fit into any life commitments with good time management.
I am very proud of myself and looking forward to starting my Nursing degree in September, with the new confidence distance learning has given me I can't wait to get started and begin my new future.
I would highly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone looking for a change in career and the motivation to make it happen. If you don't make changes, then nothing will ever change. Good Luck! (Jun 15)
The assignments and resources were relevant, clear and insightful - Lukah Webb
Fab5 Award Nominee
Before studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I was working in the education sector and fighting for a place at University to study Midwifery. The competition for places to study Midwifery was, and still is, incredible and my academic background proved to be inferior to other prospective students. After much procrastination, I decided I would undertake an Access to Higher Education Diploma. DistanceLearningCentre.com came up time and time again on forums, social media and on search engines and I soon enrolled on the Nursing and Midwifery pathway.
Knowing the academic requirements for my chosen Universities, I was determined to achieve them with support from the tutors, however, at the end of the course I greatly exceeded them! It took determination and commitment but it's a great relief to say I have now completed my studies and have been offered a place to study Midwifery this September 2015.
The assignments and resources were relevant, clear and insightful and the staff were attentive, supportive and instrumental to my success. It is with a happy heart that I say thank you, DistanceLearningCentre.com, for accessible and flexible learning for all! (Jun 15)
Go for it, as this is possibly the best thing I have ever done - Emma Chillari
Before starting my course with DistanceLearningCentre.com I worked for an energy company as a Customer Service Advisor. Although this is a fast paced job I have always wanted to be a Diagnostic Radiographer to help others.
Following shoulder surgery the opportunity presented itself to allow me to study the Access to Health Professions (Science) course. This is an incredibly useful course as it provides a basis for the subjects I will be studying on my university course.
Completing the course has given me the confidence I needed to rally from my health concerns and secure a place at the highly competitive course at Birmingham City University and I look forward to starting in September. If you are thinking about a DistanceLearningCentre.com course, go for it, as this is possibly the best thing I have ever done. (Jun 15)
I knew the uniform hours set by (traditional) colleges wouldn't be great and I wouldn't be able to fully commit - Jo-Anne Curran
Fab5 Award Nominee
Once I decided that I wanted to have a career in diagnostic radiography I knew that it would require improving myself academically to meet the entry requirements set by the university.
I currently work awkward shifts within the NHS and have two small children one of which went at school when I embarked upon my access course. For these reasons I knew the uniform hours set by colleges wouldn't be great and I wouldn't be able to fully commit.
With a bit of research I came across DistanceLearningCentre.com and it ticked all boxes. I could meet the entry requirements while being a mother and working sometimes difficult shifts. I enrolled straight away and off I went. The modules were challenging and I realised soon on that it would take a large amount if dedication.
I carried on and while it was difficult at times I found it extremely enjoyable. The materials supplied, the support from the tutors and copius amounts of coffee for my 'all nighters' carried me through. I completed my access course (health professions) and was offered a place at university to study diagnostic radiography, starting September 2015.
I can recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com wholeheartedly for those looking to improve themselves with some kind of flexibility being required. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be in the strong position that I am in now. (Jun 15)
