"The nature of the course meant that I didn't have to give up my job."
A huge achievement for me and enabled me to apply to all my first choice universities - Emma Verey
I was very nervous going back into education after 15 years, but DistanceLearningCentre.com has made my experience so much more comfortable than I could have imagined.
I thoroughly enjoyed learning all the material that was provided to me, throughout the course. The tutoring help that I received was outstanding and my whole experience has given me the confidence to take the next step in getting my psychology degree.
Completing my diploma has been a huge achievement for me and enabled me to apply to all my first choice universities. (Jun 2018)
I would never have predicted that I would ever have the opportunity to enter Higher Education - Thomas O'Farrell
Since leaving academic education after my GCSE's at 16 years old, I have served in the Royal Marines, worked and studied abroad. I would never have predicted that I would ever have the opportunity to enter Higher Education. When I discovered my passion in life (Physiotherapy), I was well aware that I would require a university degree in order to pursue my dream career. DistanceLearningCentre.com gave me the chance to do this.
Their well-structured learning materials and supportive tutors have been exceptionally consistent throughout my Diploma. It was hard and enjoyable work however, with perseverance and dedication I came through! DistanceLearningCentre.com not only helped me with my studies, they supported me through the whole UCAS application process. I was accepted into my first choice university (Oxford Brookes) to study Physiotherapy BSc, which I will begin this September.
I would highly recommended DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone looking for a path to higher education as they have essentially helped me achieve my dream, thank you DistanceLearningCentre.com! (Jun 2018)
Course materials were very informative and contained the latest information in these fields - Natalie Cassidy
I discovered the DistanceLearningCentre.com whilst serving in the Royal Navy. It has always been a lifelong ambition to become a Physiotherapist, but due to the operational requirements of my job and the birth of my twin boys, the dream seemed to fade into the distance. Many friends recommended DistanceLearningCentre.com as it gives you the opportunity to study around work and family commitments. After 10 years I decided to take the plunge and enrol, changing my career from the world of aviation, to becoming an Allied Health Professional.
The Access to HE (Allied Health Professions) Physiotherapy Diploma appealed to me as it combined two of my favourite subjects Biology and Psychology. The course materials were very informative and contained the latest information in these fields. The course has been arranged into small topic areas which allow you to study through each one sequentially, further developing your knowledge. The tutors are very supportive and motivating, providing one-to-one tutorials and email support. The use of an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) ensured I was on target to complete my diploma in time for moderation. They also provide support for your UCAS University application, from tutorials to tutor references, so your never alone on this journey.
After just over a year I am pleased to say, I have been accepted into Plymouth University and completed my Diploma with a full set of Distinctions, something I never thought I would achieve whilst being a fulltime working twin mummy. It required a great deal of dedication, time-management and enthusiasm, and you get out of it what you put in. My advice to anyone wanting to study through DistanceLearningCentre.com is, "Go for it, work hard, play hard and achieve your dreams". (Jun 2018)
Because the course was so flexible, I had the opportunity to bounce back - Fabiola Philippe
My name is Fabiola and I am 28 years old. I am originally from Mauritius and I have been in this country for well over a decade now. I have got two lovely children and a loving partner who I love dearly. I have been working, as a healthcare assistant and a support worker, since I was 18 years old.
I have always wanted to study an Access to Social Work Course, ever since I could remember, but because I was in full time employment, I couldn't go ahead with it, as it would have been hard to attend traditional classes. After searching online, I finally came across the DistanceLearningCentre.com website. I decided to give it go and this has been one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. The nature of the course meant that I didn't have to give up my job.
I have recently completed the access course and I have achieved excellent grades on all of the modules. The course itself is of a high standard but by putting continuous effort into it, is achievable. However, my time on the access hasn't been an easy one. Whilst being on this course, I went through three biggest lifespan stressors. I lost my dad, I got divorced and I suffered from mental ill health. Because the course was so flexible, I had the opportunity to bounce back and carry on with my studies. Today, I am so grateful, and I would like to say a massive thank you to my tutor for being so supportive.
I have been offered a place to study a BSc in Social work, in the University of Winchester. On the completion of my BSc in social work, my plan is to apply to study an MSc in safeguarding for children and adults. My ambitions for the future is to contribute towards a lot of poverty, social injustice and mental health research work and to thrive in my career as a Social worker. (Jun 2018)
The feedback was excellent and helped me achieve the grades I need - Lewis Herring
Having left school with no A-Levels, I found myself struggling to get back into higher education with no options available to me.
After enrolling with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I wanted to aim high and study at the best university I could. My tutor was really encouraging and helpful. The course and materials were really well structured, with some fascinating modules and I thoroughly enjoyed studying the topics and completing the assignments. The feedback was excellent and helped me achieve the grades I need. Now I'm going to a Russell Group university to study Economics and I couldn't be happier.
I would absolutely recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone hoping to get back into education! (Jun 2018)
