My entire experience was fantastic! - Rebecca Spencer
My dream of becoming a nurse is in sight thanks to DistanceLearningCentre.com.
You can fit the Diploma around your busy life. It takes motivation, hard work and dedication, but it is all worth it!
I will be starting University as a student nurse in September which I never thought possible. I was supported by the tutors from start to finish. My particular Diploma covered the entire UCAS process which was invaluable when it came applying to University.
I would not hesitate to recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com; my entire experience was fantastic! (Jun 2017)
The course's flexibility meant I managed it all with top grades - Francesca Rees
Fab5 Award Nominee
I wanted a career change from PR so I signed up with DistanceLearningCentre.com as I could chase my dream of becoming a midwife.
The year I studied turned out to be tougher than I thought as I had a baby and was diagnosed with diabetes, but the course's flexibility meant I managed it all with top grades.
I was lucky enough to secure a really competitive place to study midwifery at my local university and I start in September. DistanceLearningCentre.com made it all possible - thank you! (Jun 2017)

The staff were very supportive and motivating - Malang Fatty
For people like me, who want to venture into higher education but do not have all the entry requirements, DistanceLearningCentre.com is the perfect way to go.
The staff were very supportive and motivating and the email responses were swift. You didn't have to wait too long to have a tutorial if you needed one for an assignment. Everything was clear and done at your pace. I am glad I made the choice to study with DistanceLearningCentre.com. (Jun 2017)
The Diploma has given me vital skills for higher education - Steven Wilson
I have worked for South East Coast Ambulance Service, as a technician, since 2004 and my goal has always been to become qualified paramedic.
When I was seven years old I was found to have dyslexia, so struggled and found school difficult, this resulted in poor grades when I graduated. To move on and get onto a degree course I needed to complete an Access to Higher Education Diploma.
I have three young children and work a full-time shift pattern so I needed to enrol onto a flexible course; that is why I chose the Access to Higher Education Diploma (Paramedicine) through DistanceLearningCentre.com.
I found that with my busy lifestyle I could put in the work at a time that suited me. The course has been incredibly interesting, enjoyable and difficult at times. The tutors are very friendly, helpful and answer any questions promptly. I would recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone who wants to improve their education and achieve their dreams.
Since completing my Diploma I have applied for, and completed interviews at St George's University Hospital London. I am now looking forward to the next stage in my education as I have been offered a place on the Paramedic Science BSc (Hons) degree course starting in September 2017.
The Diploma has given me vital skills for higher education, greatly improved my self-confidence in my academic abilities from the Distinctions I have gained, and has proven that with commitment and hard work you can achieve your goals. (Jun 2017)
It taught me how to learn; and the more I learnt, the more my confidence grew - Ashleigh Gardner
I had my first child at 19, and left college halfway through my A-Levels. Whilst looking after a baby full-time, I didn't have time to go back to college and re-take my qualifications and ultimately accepted that I would never be able to go to university. However, whilst pregnant with my son in 2015, I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com and decided to take the plunge and go for it.
The first thing I will tell you is it is not easy, you must be motivated, self-disciplined and determined, but I managed it with a new-born and a 2 year old!
The thing I loved the most about studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com is that I feel it taught me how to learn; and the more I learnt, the more my confidence grew. I would recommend them to anyone. The tutors have been fantastic; they were always patient, encouraging and supportive and the course itself was fascinating.
I have now finished my Access to Allied Health Professions Diploma, and I have a place to study Midwifery at the University of Cumbria in September! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. (Jun 2017)
