"I thought that my chances of achieving academically and going to university were over. I am thrilled to have now been given the opportunity to begin my degree."
I could do my course work when my children were in bed or at school and with the option to pay monthly it was easily affordable for me - Sabrina Wilson
I have always wanted to work in the health care sector as either a nurse or a midwife. After having my two children I decided that I wanted to become a midwife as the midwives, that I had come across, were amazing and helped me a lot. I wanted to do the same for other expectant mothers.
I didn't have the right qualifications to apply to university so I started to look at Access to Higher Education courses when I came across DistanceLearningCentre.com. As a single working mum it was perfect for me; I could do my course work when my children were in bed or at school and with the option to pay monthly it was easily affordable for me.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and the tutors have been amazing; they are very supportive and help you when you are struggling.
I have now finished my course and I am very happy with my results. I am going to apply to university for 2019 as that's when my youngest will be in full time education. I am very excited for what the future holds and DistanceLearningCentre.com has helped me on my way there. Thank you! (Jun 2018)
The course was easily manageable around my life - Nathan Davenport
I have worked in the Outdoor Education Industry since I was 15. Now 24, I felt that my career needed a boost towards a different direction. DistanceLearningCentre.com was the perfect medium to facilitate the first steps towards my goal.
The course was easily manageable around my life. My days often stretch far into the evening and, more often than not, I am away for several days at a time taking young people away on short expeditions. The flexible deadlines allowed for me to fit in work where I could and the online support from my tutors was invaluable.
For anyone who lives a busy life and wonders if it is even possible to fit an academic course into it, with a bit of motivation and careful planning it can be done! (Jun 2018)
Due to my status as an expatriate in the Middle east, I couldn't have achieved this without them - James Fox
I found DistanceLearningCentre.com to be my best option to meet my distance-learning needs. The tutors were helpful and kept me heading in the right direction. I have just submitted my last assignment and will shortly be the proud recipient of a Diploma in Sports Studies.
Due to my status as an expatriate in the Middle east, I couldn't have achieved this without DistanceLearningCentre.com's invaluable guidance. (Jun 2018)
My academic skills level has hugely improved between the start and the end of the course - Ornela Ndoumbe Garcia
Undertaking an access course in Law with DistanceLearningCentre.com to study a law degree at university, was one of the best decisions I have made.
When I started the course, I thought that I would not be able the finish it because of the intensive reading, assessments and exams. However, my tutor has hugely helped me with the whole process of the course by guiding me with my grammar, reading understanding, structures of essays etc. Thanks to that, my English academic skills level has hugely improved between the start and the end of the course.
I am quite satisfied with DistanceLearningCentre.com, and I will definitely recommend it to friends and relatives, and I will come back to undertake another course. (Jun 2018)
I enjoyed knowing that I was achieving something and taking steps towards a positive future - Ella Flowers
After having spent the majority of my teenage years ill with my mental health, in and out of hospital, and having missed several years of education as a result, I thought that my chances of achieving academically and going to university were over. I'd lost all confidence in myself and didn't feel prepared to start college, nor would I have been able to fit it around my circumstances. I was completely disheartened by all of this as after everything I had been through, I wanted nothing more than to be able to use my experiences to help others in the future as a nurse. I just felt hopeless.
It wasn't until I came across DistanceLearningCentre.com that I came to the realisation that maybe I still did have a chance of accomplishing my goals. After doing some further research, I knew without a doubt that both the expertise and flexibility of DistanceLearningCentre.com would be able to provide me with the assistance and support to secure a Diploma in Health and Social Care in order to start my journey to becoming a Mental Health Nurse, whilst being able to fit it around my life and continue working on my recovery.
When I began the diploma I really started to panic about what I had committed myself to. Was I ready? Was I capable? What if I wasn't able to manage the assignments? How would I stay motivated? There were so many questions running through my head making me doubt my decision. However, with self-motivation, determination, hard-work, and the support of my tutor(s) I can hands down say that starting the Access Course was one of the best decisions of my life. I loved getting back into learning and studying again, putting my head down and working on topics that I enjoyed knowing that I was achieving something and taking steps towards a positive future. Though this Diploma had its challenges and difficulties, I got stuck in and refused to give up trying. 5 months later I had completed the course.
I can not go without saying that I would never have completed my Diploma with the grades I did if it was not for the incredible support from my tutor. I was consistently provided with clear advice and guidance that also encouraged me to take my own initiative and believe in my abilities more. We would look at both my areas of strength and weaknesses in order to develop a good idea on how I can continue improving and working to the best of my ability. I can't thank my tutor enough for the continual support and faith she had in me that aided me in getting where I am today. I've developed upon and learnt so many new skills during my time studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com and am thrilled to have now been given the opportunity to begin my degree in September in Mental Health Nursing at Bangor University.
For anyone considering studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I say absolutely go for it, stay positive and believe in yourself. (Jun 2018)
