There was always someone to help and very understanding of my personal situation - Violet Mukungu
Having been out of education for a long time, I was sceptical in achieving the grades I needed to be accepted on a social work course, that suddenly changed when a friend recommended DistanceLearningCentre.com.
I have to say I wouldn't have been able to perform as well as I did, if it wasn't for the support and guidance I received from my tutors. There was always someone to help and very understanding of my personal situation. I will forever be grateful for that. (Jun 2018)
Good luck to new students and have the self belief to follow your dreams - Rachel Moles
I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com when I was researching home learning and to incorporate my career change dream of becoming a midwife.
As a mature student I had many concerns and doubts regarding my ability to complete the online learning due to my age and how long it had been since school/college. I started the Higher Education Diploma in Nursing and Midwifery at the same time I started a new job, working as a full time receptionist in my local NHS Hospital A&E department.
I enjoyed the diploma course syllabus and also getting back into learning and improving my knowledge in key areas relevant to my new career choice. I did struggle at times with some of the assignment deadlines due to my own poor time management due to work pressures, but I remained dedicated and restructured my spare time on my days off or before a shift to devote to my studies. Another struggle was trying to learn and memorise large volumes of information in preparation for exams. As time goes on throughout the course I became better at time management and getting better prepared for exams and submitting assignments to strict deadlines. I'm not going to say I found it easy, far from it, I had times of self doubt and tears thinking I couldn't achieve the learning objectives of the course, but talking with the tutors and reading their positive feedback really helped and reassured me that I was capable of achieving this dream and completing the diploma.
I can finally smile and relax as the final assignment was submitted and had been advised by my tutor I had completed and passed the diploma. I'm awaiting my certificate and getting my final grade. I would highly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone, it's never to late to learn and a big thank you to my two patient tutors.
Good luck to new students and have the self belief to follow your dreams, it's totally worth it and remember to give yourself a treat every now and then it helps to stay motivated. My treat was that after the course I paid my first visit to NYC! (Jun 2018)
Has given me the opportunity to be accepted onto a very competitive course - Faye Rich
After not being sure of the career I wanted to pursue when leaving college, I tried a few different jobs and was never truly happy until I fell into a trainee dental nursing job. I have loved every minute of this interesting and rewarding career. However, I felt I had the drive and ambition to progress to the next level.
I began an Access to Higher Education (Science) course with Distancelearningcentre.com and have worked really hard to complete this along with excellent help and support from the tutors over the past year. It has given me great confidence in myself, developed my skills in independent learning and most of all has given me the opportunity to be accepted onto a very competitive course!
I will now be moving to Manchester in September to begin the journey to becoming a Dental Therapist, and I couldn't have done it without the Distancelearningcentre.com! ? Thank you! (Jun 2018)
The course was affordable as it is paid in manageable instalments - Lauren Chalmers
My dream of becoming an Operating Department Practitioner is finally in sight thanks to DistanceLearningCentre.com.
I work full time as a Heath Care Assistant in a hospital, so I needed to find a course that was flexible and that I could work around and that is exactly what I found. The course I studied at college didn't allow me access into university so when I heard about DistanceLearningCentre.com I was overjoyed! It has been hard work, but if you are organised, focused and determined you can do it!
I am so proud of myself for what I have achieved. This course has provided me with vital skills I will take with me to university, and I can't thank DistanceLearningCentre.com enough for this. The materials were very detailed and set out clearly, my tutors were fantastic! The support and guidance from them was excellent and I was always given plenty of feedback! The course was affordable as it is paid in manageable instalments and it is very clear on your Learner Account what is outstanding etc. There was also plenty of help when applying to university through UCAS!
I have been offered a place at university, starting September 2018 and I can't believe I have done it! I would 100% recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone! (Jun 2018)
Due to financial responsibilities I was unable to go down the conventional route of attending a local college - Emma Hamilton
For a number of years I have wanted to embark on a career in midwifery, however, I needed to undertake an Access HE course to improve my qualifications and meet university entry requirements.
Due to financial responsibilities I was unable to go down the conventional route of attending a local college, which led me to look for other options. DistanceLearningCentre.com has been a perfect solution for me as it has allowed me to study at my own pace, fitting my studies around work, children and other commitments.
It has been very challenging at times, with late nights and hair pulling, but with the unyielding support from tutors and fellow students you can achieve your goals ? I am living proof!
Having now been accepted at Bournemouth University I am eternally grateful to the DistanceLearningCentre.com for providing me with the necessary skills to help me in my future studies as a student midwife. (Jun 2018)
