DistanceLearningCentre.com tutors and staff have been fantastic in helping me achieve the grades I need - Aaliya Mahmood
Prior to starting my Diploma, I was working for the Ambulance Service as a 111 Health Advisor and PTS Call Handler. I'd always wanted to become a paramedic but didn't have the right qualifications.
That's when I enrolled on the Access to Paramedicine Course. I wanted to work towards meeting the entry requirements for a Paramedic Science degree, which is what I have done ... 400 days later!
DistanceLearningCentre.com tutors and staff have been fantastic in helping me achieve the grades I need, as well as any other situations I needed support with. I applied to 2 universities and have received conditional offers from both.
My first choice was University of Huddersfield, a brand-new course starting in September. I have achieved more credits that the offer requires, it wouldn't have been possible without DistanceLearningCentre.com. (July 2021)
I thought it would be difficult to find time to study, but the course was structured really well and I was able to study when it suited me - Hayley Fell
For the past 10 years I have worked as a makeup artist but always dreamed of training to become a nurse, with two young daughters I thought I would never be able to find the time to achieve this. Thankfully, I came across DistanceLearningCentre.com, and with the support and guidance of my wonderful tutors I began an Access to HE Diploma in Nursing and Midwifery and found the right university for me. As I work full time and have children, I thought it would be difficult to find time to study, but the course was structured really well and I was able to study when it suited me.
It had been over ten years since I left school and I was nervous to study again, but my tutors were patient, helpful and always available should I have any questions. The website was easy to use and the learning materials and extra learning resources were incredibly informative. My tutors had excellent knowledge and were able to guide me through any areas I struggled with. I completed my diploma with 15 Merits and 30 Distinctions, my first-choice university offered me a place and I begin my Adult Nursing degree in September.
To anyone thinking of pursuing a new career, just go for it! I highly recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com and can say with confidence that studying with them is one of the best decisions I have made. (July 2021)
I now feel I am in a far better position after learning with DistanceLearningCentre.com - Sean Howells
Before starting this course, I had recently left the Royal Navy after 12 years. I was 38 at the start of the Access to Law Option 1 course. Unfortunately, I could never find the time to study while I had been serving due to the constantly hectic program. I decided to learn with the DistanceLearningCentre.com after stumbling across the website while browsing at different providers. I had found a wide range of exciting courses to choose from and after reading some of the testimonials, I decided to take the plunge and start learning.
I plan to study at The Open University. Although the OU requires no academic qualifications, I decided to take the correct route anyway and prove that I could study at level 3 before studying at a higher level. During the modules, I developed my research methods and even my basic English. I am now far more confident in seeking out information and finding pros and cons with every theory. I had enjoyed all my modules, especially Law and Criminal Law in particular. Some modules I found challenging, especially the further and further the course progressed.
Still, with the help from the DistanceLearningCentre.com materials, which were easy to follow, the advice I received from others using the provider's Facebook page and my personal tutor, who was always so quick to answer any questions, I overcame these challenges and achieved my end goal of becoming adequately qualified to attend a degree course which I completed in 7 months. I now feel I am in a far better position after learning with DistanceLearningCentre.com. I am currently enrolled on an LLB Qualifying Law degree with the OU. (July 2021)
During lockdown, I spotted DistanceLearningCentre.com online and thought "This is my chance" - Ashleigh Jordan
I have always been academically minded, but I unfortunately left school with poor A-level results. I ended up working basic admin jobs while always wanting to go to university.
During lockdown, I spotted DistanceLearningCentre.com online and thought "This is my chance". I was a little apprehensive at first as I have been out of education for a few years, but studying online enabled me to continue working and gave me a second chance at going to university.
I chose to study Science (Option 1) and found the tutors to be very supportive and willing to help with any problems I had. I have now been accepted into all of my UCAS choices and will be attending university to study biomedical science.
I am so grateful to DistanceLearningCentre.com for allowing me to achieve my goals and I strongly recommend anybody wishing to gain accredited qualifications, that work around daily life, to study with them. (July 2021)
I was able to study at my own pace, fitting in my study around working part-time. - Georgina Stidston
I first attempted university in 2014 and quickly realised I had chosen the wrong course and left after one year. I spent the next few years training and working as an Outdoor Pursuits Instructor, enjoying my work but always wishing that I could go back and study again (choosing the right course this time around). However, I did not have the correct qualifications to study what I was interested in.
The initial Covid-19 situation brought me back to the UK after 5 months in New Zealand and I ended up with little paid work and a hard decision to make. I learned about Access to HE courses and discovered DistanceLearningCentre.com. I chose to study with them as they seemed to have the best options for what I was looking for. I began studying an Access to Radiography course and found it to be a great stepping stone for me to apply for the courses I wanted to study. It helped me to refresh my knowledge in preparation for returning to university and I was able to study at my own pace, fitting in my study around working part-time. I am quite an independent person, with good motivation to study, and it was lovely that the tutors were really helpful and always checked in to see how I was getting on.
I received offers from all of my university choices and have accepted a place to study Medical Imaging (Diagnostic Radiography) BSc at the University of Exeter. I am very thankful that this option for study was available and look forward to heading to university! (July 2021)
