It has spring-boarded me in my new chosen career - Ben Brownlow
Fab5 Award Nominee
After two years of travelling around the world I returned back to England and decided to make a career change as I was not enjoying my former career as a carpenter.
After being out of education for 7 years it was very daunting beginning my Physiotherapy Access Course. With the great support from my tutors and the flexibility and the structure of the course it helped me a great deal to get over this initial feeling and helped me juggle studying with a full time job.
I'm so glad I chose DistanceLearningCentre.com as it has spring-boarded me in my new chosen career in physiotherapy. It has given me great confidence and optimism for beginning my three year course at university. It has been the best decision to go back to education and change careers.
I would recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to people from all stages of life, it is never too late to change and improve your life! (Jun 16)
The course is basically tailored to meet your requirements - Georgia Bacon
Fab5 Award Nominee
Moving home to look after a sick relative, I thought I would have to put my plans of studying for an Access Course on hold - that's until I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com.
The past year has been incredibly difficult however my tutor has made it so much easier by always being incredibly patient, empathetic and understanding with me. I think you get out what you put in with the course - if you work hard and put the effort in, you will be rewarded. The resources you are given are exceptional and the course is basically tailored to meet your requirements.
Thanks to my tutor's encouragement and support, I achieved full distinctions and will be attending my first choice university; allowing me to turn my dream of becoming a Social Worker into a reality. DistanceLearningCentre.com has opened so many doors for me and I'm excited to see where the future takes me! (Jun 16)
I was challenged by the modules at first but soon found the flow of studying again - Ruth Everatt
I have just completed the 'access to paramedic science' level 3 course with DistanceLearningCentre.com. It has been such an intense journey for me. I made the decision over a year ago that I wanted to train to be a paramedic. The only problem facing me was that I lacked the science A-levels (choosing more arts related subjects when I first attended sixth form college 10 years ago) to apply for university. I had been working in customer service most of my life but didn't feel fulfilled.
A friend recommended DistanceLearningCentre.com to me and I began studying for the course. I loved revisiting psychology; I was challenged by the modules at first but soon found the flow of studying again. Biology was tough for me, I'd never studied it at this level, but after utilising as many resources as I could find, I had a few light bulb moments where it just clicked and I now feel like I understand the world I live in thanks to biology!
I think to gain success with an Access Course, or any type of distance learning requires commitment and discipline. The thought of training to be a paramedic, my dream job (although coming a bit later in life) kept me motivated. I have been juggling a full time, intensive job with the NHS and even changed careers and moved house during my studies. The tutors have been very flexible, as I had to extend my final deadline by a month, due to extending the deadlines of assessments throughout. My tutors have understood that life sometimes gets in the way of study, and I was able to change deadlines to represent the time I needed to focus.
I've finished with all distinctions in my assessments and an offer to study Paramedic science at St George's university in London in September. I will always be grateful to DistanceLearningCentre.com, as it has given me a second chance to completely change my career, area of study and ultimately my life. And yes, you can do it too! (Jun 16)
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)
