"The tutors that have assisted me throughout my course have been incredibly helpful"
I was always made to feel like there was someone there for me - Christie Morris
I just thought I would take a minute to say thank you for all your help throughout my course! I really enjoyed doing my course and found the materials and both tutors thorough and easy to understand. Any problems I had were addressed quickly and efficiently.
I studied the Nursing course from Canada and although I thought this may make my study challenging my tutors could not have been more helpful in ensuring I completed the course from overseas. I was always made to feel like there was someone there for me and genuine care from my tutors.
I applied to universities and was accepted to all of my top choices!! I couldn't be more thrilled that I was accepted into my first choice, Uiniversty of East Anglia, to do children's nursing. Bring on September! I couldn't have got here without DistanceLearningCentre.com and would recommend them in a heart beat. (Jun 16)
This has filled me with the confidence to study biology at a higher level - Chris Finch
My experience with the DistanceLearningCentre.com was not only extremely rewarding but it also made me realize my potential.
After spending 11 years in an unfulfilling career I made a radical change in my life and traveled to China to work as an English teacher. I soon fell in love with teaching and decided that on my return I would do anything to become a teacher in the UK. I aspired to teach biology which I have always found fascinating, however felt that my limited formal education in this area would be huge hurdle to overcome. Nevertheless, I chose the Access to HE Diploma in Science covering Biology, Physics and Psychology.
One year later I am proud to say that I achieved Distinction grades in every graded unit throughout the course! This has filled me with the confidence to study biology at a higher level and my grades have given me the opportunity to apply to the highest ranking universities in the country.
All my tutors were extremely well informed, supportive and helpful. I also feel that the way the materials are written and presented is brilliant. Each module is clear, precise and packed full of information that does not seem intimidating at all. I would highly recommend that anyone considering enrolling on a Access to HE course chooses DistanceLearningCentre.com. (Jun 16)
Whilst there are deadlines to meet you can work at your own pace - Stephanie Grundy
Fab5 Award Nominee
Knowing I needed to complete an Access Course to chase my dreams, my original plan was to go to college in the evenings to study a health course. I experienced many closed doors and negativity from those establishments telling me I would not succeed when working full time. This is when I approached DistanceLearningCentre.com and I have never looked back. It was daunting at first to know I would not study in the conventional classroom way with other students; however, the support I have received from my tutors and the forums has outweighed any of my previous college experiences.
Completing a course like this on-line requires motivation, commitment and the desire to succeed, as you are in charge of your own workload. Whilst there are deadlines to meet you can work at your own pace and enjoy the flexibility it brings.
Throughout my time studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com I have gained and strengthened so many skills ranging from time management and organisation to research and academic writing. It has been a challenge whilst having a job alongside but it has opened my eyes as to what can be achieved when you set your mind to something. I have gained so much confidence, realised I can be successful and have become an independent student which I feel is vital for university.
I would like to thank DistanceLearningCentre.com for this opportunity and to my tutors for the support and assistance in reaching my goals and preparing me for the next stage of my journey. I couldn't have done it without you. Reach for the stars and you will catch them. I can finally say ... "I'm going to be a student midwife". (Jun 16)
The tutors that have assisted me throughout my course have been incredibly helpful - Jessica Thompson
At this time in my life, I have been given the opportunity to achieve my goals and try to gain A-Levels and re-take my GCSE's to enable me to apply to University to study Midwifery.
The tutors that have assisted me throughout my course have been incredibly helpful, knowing the specific grades I needed to achieve and helping me along the way.
I have really enjoyed my Access to HE course (Midwifery) and am currently retaking my GCSE's with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I have achieved more than I needed to get into University, all with the help from my tutors at DistanceLearningCentre.com. (Jun 16)
Very helpful when I was applying to universities and even helped with my UCAS application - Ella Rigg
Fab5 Award Nominee
Before starting my Access to Midwifery course I was a Team Leader within a healthcare recruitment company, supplying temporary healthcare professionals to the NHS and private sectors. Midwifery had been an interest of my mine for many years and the idea of studying this at University was very exciting! However, as I did not complete my A-Levels, I did not meet the entry requirements I needed to apply to University.
I did a lot of research on ways I could gain some qualifications and came across DistanceLearningCentre.com. The 'What Students Say' section of the website was what really sold them to me - success stories of people who were once in the same position as me and who were passionate about making a career change and did just that! After reading through these, I enrolled in October 2014 to start my Access to Midwifery course.
It has been extremely challenging completing my diploma while in a full time management position and also with having to start two new jobs during this time. At times I thought I would never be able to complete my course! I found the modules extremely interesting, even though the work was challenging and I had to manage my time extremely well in order to meet my deadlines. My tutors have been extremely supportive and understanding throughout my studies. I have never been made to feel like any question was a silly one, even though I expect some were! They helped with all my queries and gave me direction when I needed it.
I am very proud to be able to say that I have completed my diploma with a distinction profile, something I never thought I would be able to do! I have also applied to University and am in the process of interviewing at both the Universities I applied to!
I am so grateful to DistanceLearningCentre.com for giving me the opportunity to get this far. I certainly would never have been able to get this far without the support, understanding and flexibility of both my tutors who have been amazing throughout! If you are thinking of studying at DistanceLearningCentre.com ? I can't recommend it enough. It has been such a great experience and achieving my diploma has been the most rewarding thing I have done to date. (Jun 16)
