"This diploma has shown me what will be expected of me at university."
Their guidance and reassurance helped me enormously - Rebecca Ella
I always knew that I wanted to go to university but after completing my A-Levels I realised that I didn't have enough points and it really knocked my confidence.
After reading about the DistanceLearningCentre.com online I decided to take the leap and it turned out to be one of my best achievements to date. I enrolled on the HE Access to Social Work and studied for just under a year.
To begin with I was really unsure of my ability to write assignments and sit exams so was happy when given guidance on how to do this. All in all though I really enjoyed the coursework orientated syllabus as exams are not my forte!
I have found that this Diploma has really helped me with my self-confidence. I didn't believe in my own ability or that I'd get offered interviews at my preferred universities to study Social Work and Nursing (Adults) or even that I'd get a job as a Key Worker for adults with mental health issues and help to run the companies project in Huntington.
All of this would have not been possible without the excellent support that I received from my tutors throughout the course or the student forum. Their guidance and reassurance helped me enormously. (Jun 2018)
I wanted to pursue a career in the NHS, unfortunately I didn't have the required entry grades - Cameron McTernan
After leaving school I was unsure on which career path to take and I fluttered between jobs until the age of 21. It was then that I realised I wanted to pursue a career in the NHS as a radiographer, unfortunately I didn't have the required entry grades. I am so grateful to the whole team at DistanceLearningCentre.com for helping achieve an offer to my 1st uni. I managed to complete my access course in around 6 months, it was a lot of work but it was very doable alongside still working and definitely worth it. (Jun 2018)
Would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family - Virginie Grougi
I am about to embark on a journey to study Psychology, all thanks to DistanceLearningCentre.com.
I must say it was a bit challenging at the beginning, but with my unflinching determination and the tremendous help from my tutors, I achieved my Access to Allied Health Professions Diploma.
I am happy I chose DistanceLearningCentre.com and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. (Nov 2017)
DistanceLearningCentre.com has given me such a boost of confidence - Keira Kirwan
Before enrolling with the DistanceLearningCentre.com I was working in administration full time. As much as I enjoy working in administration, my passion lies with teaching and helping children to ensure they have the best start in education.
I thought that I missed my opportunity to pursue the career I dreamed of because I left school and went to study administration instead of achieving Alevels but when I came across the DistanceLearningCentre.com website I realised I could study whilst working ? I was ecstatic.
The course I studied was the Access to Higher Education Diploma (Primary Teaching) (English). I finished the course with all distinctions which I still cannot believe! I am so proud of myself and so grateful to the DistanceLearningCentre.com for all of their support.
I have met the requirements for the university course I wish to study however due to circumstances I won't be able study this year but I have my heart set on my goal to go to university as soon as I can and become a qualified teacher!
DistanceLearningCentre.com has given me such a boost of confidence and made me even more determined to be the teacher I want to be in the near future. I would recommend (in fact I have) to anyone simply because of the fantastic tutor support, quality of the learning materials and the easy way to submit, make payment, download and navigate on the website.

Has shown me what will be expected of me at university and has better prepared me - Sophie Tubb
I was working full time as a dispenser at Boots, as I didn't get into University straight after finishing my A-Levels. Studying Access to HE diploma (Allied Health Professions) has allowed me to re-apply for university but as a nurse this time, and I have a much better chance of succeeding.
This diploma has shown me what will be expected of me at university and has better prepared me for this. I'm so glad I did this Diploma. (Nov 2017)
