"I highly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anybody who finds the traditional learning experience difficult."
I found my course easy to fit around my work and personal life - Megan Stephenson
I started my Higher education diploma as I didn’t have the correct grades to pursue a career within the North West Ambulance Service. As I have a full-time job and a young son, I found my DistanceLearningCentre.com course easy to fit around my work schedule and personal life.
The course was easy to follow with brilliant support throughout, which made my learning enjoyable as well as informative. I had an interview for an Emergency Medical Technician role during my course and I found this course gave me a great stepping stone above other candidates, enabling me to follow the career I have always wanted to do.
I would recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to everyone. (Jul 2020)
I love the flexibility of the course and outstanding tutors – Mehluli Dube
I had applied to university in the previous year, but all my choices had rejected my application; I was not invited to any interview. I was heartbroken. It was a hard pill to swallow; I did know where to start or what to do for that matter. I had qualifications from the University of Zimbabwe and a HIV Counselling and Care qualification from the University of South Africa, it was hard to understand why my application was not selected. Before I moved to the UK, 2 years ago, I had been a Science school teacher in Zimbabwe for 10 years, worked in the health sector as a chronic illness advisor for 6 years in South Africa, and I was working in the NHS as a health care assistant. It was difficult to comprehend and I was desperate to upskill. I decided to search for a diploma in nursing, and after carefully evaluating and reading reviews of different course providers, DistanceLearningCentre.com was the answer.
I love the flexibility that comes with the course and the outstanding tutors. I was able to combine my full-time work as an NHS healthcare assistant amid COVID 19 outbreak with my studies. I opted to continue with my studies because I enjoyed the level of support from my tutors, which was absolutely outstanding. I have since been offered a place from two universities to study a BSc in Adult Nursing. It is in this regard that I strongly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com without hesitation for any person who would like to reboot their career. (Jul 2020)
I highly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anybody who finds the traditional learning experience difficult - Zareena Osbourne
For the majority of my life, I have suffered from severe health issues that have impacted my schooling. As I got older these issues worsened which made it increasingly difficult to remain in school. I found myself missing days of school due to appointments and low days. It was when I suffered a severe allergic reaction at sixth form which endangered my life, I realised I had to make a change. I became extremely anxious that I wouldn’t be able to complete my education until I discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com. I finally found something that worked for me. Something that pushed me to do my best. Something that gave me my freedom while providing me with a great education.
DistanceLearningCentre.com allowed me to regain my health back and continue my schooling. I never dreamt of the possibility of attending university. However, after receiving my qualifications I got accepted into one of the best law schools in the country. I couldn’t have done this without the support of my amazing tutors. I’m thankful for their guidance and at moments constructive criticisms that allowed me to improve my work and succeed.
I highly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anybody who finds the traditional learning experience difficult or not fit for them for any reason. Once again thank you to everyone at DistanceLearningCentre.com. (Jul 2020)
My health was not an implication or an ‘issue’ to DistanceLearningCentre.com - Harriet Brough
Having been out of education for 10+ and nearing my 30th birthday, the thought of entering education again seemed out of reach and unachievable with an added unaffordable cost implication. To complicate my worries, I had recently been diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness which unfortunately at times resulted in prolonged bed rest and subsequently many hospital admissions and appointments.
This was overwhelming and incredibly difficult to navigate whilst wanting to change career. In turn, my confidence plummeted. If I wanted to achieve my goal of becoming a paediatric nurse, so finding a suitable institution to cater to my current individual needs was my priority.
After researching pathways into higher education, I found DistanceLearningCentre.com, which was both affordable and easily accessible.
At first, I had reservations about the options available for remote learning and if I would get the same benefits if I were to be studying in an on-site institution. I had concerns around whether I could complete the course remotely, if I would achieve the grades I needed for university or if my illness would hinder my progression through the course. All of these reservations were swiftly put to bed when speaking with them and I made the easy decision to join.
My health was not an implication or an ‘issue’ to DistanceLearningCentre.com. They gave me the opportunity to fully engage in education again, to study at my own pace and most importantly to regain my confidence and self-worth.
Throughout my two years with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I have gained an invaluable wealth of knowledge and experience to enable a swift move onto a child nursing degree. This was down to module reading opportunities provided, but also opportunities to independently read on a wider scale. The opportunity to learn remotely enabled me to become a reflective and tenacious learner whilst also engaging with course material effectively. The reflective practice after each module, enabled progressive academic skills and has allowed a much easier transition into university life.
My tutor provided ample amounts of support and encouragement throughout and I cannot thank her enough for her indispensable part in my journey to university.
Thanks to DistanceLearningCentre.com, I was offered all three places at my chosen universities.
During these unprecedented times due to COVID-19, I could not be prouder to say I am now a student nurse providing critical healthcare to children, young people and their families. DistanceLearningCentre.com, thank you! (Jul 2020)
DistanceLearningCentre.com, and its staff, have put me in the best possible position to progress professionally - Robert Owens
After some research into distance learning, I decided to pursue my educational ambitions with DistanceLearningCentre.com as I looked for a potential career change. I have always kept my 'hand in', so to speak, with adult learning, but my shortfall that required updating was in science, which I had not looked at for a number of years. The structure of the course was excellent, as I felt that I was gently introduced to the topics and allowed to develop my skills at a comfortable pace while still meeting all deadlines.
My tutors were fantastic with me. Their level of expertise was shared with me and their patience was shown, when I perhaps struggled to understand an idea or subject, they provided me with great encouragement. These factors were of great assistance to me as I undertook this course while serving in the RAF and also overseas.
I await now to see if my hard work ultimately pays off with regards to my career, but I know that DistanceLearningCentre.com, and its staff, have put me in the best possible position to progress professionally. (Jul 2020)
