It all started for me in 2008 when I had my first Reiki treatment. From there I went on to do my studies and become a Reiki Master. During that period, I really found who I was and what I wanted out of life and that was to do Mental Health Nursing, which brought me to DistanceLearningCentre.com as I did not have any A-levels, having left school and going straight into work as a legal secretary. Furthermore, my GCSEs were over 10 years old however that wasn't a problem as DistanceLearningCentre.com offered level 2 within the Access course.
I read forums and comments about DistanceLearningCentre.com before signing up which led me to take the plunge with no regrets. DistanceLearningCentre.com have been brilliant and without them I wouldn't be waiting to start University of Manchester in September 2012. I'm not really sure where I am going after university, the Army being an option, however I know that I want to integrate Reiki and the other therapies that I do into mental health nursing and bring more of a holistic slant to my work as a mental health nurse. A post-grad in psychotherapy is also an option for me now.
So here goes, my journey continues to grow and I just want to thank DistanceLearningCentre.com for making it possible. If anybody out there is unsure what route or path to take, just follow your gut instinct and what you truly want to do and if it is to take up an Access course, I would definitely recommend that you take it with DistanceLearningCentre.com.

It is a great achievement for me to be able to complete my course. This is the genesis of a life time career. Studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com (DistanceLearningCentre.com) is the best thing that could have ever happened to me and is the only way one can know how good one is and what you can achieve in education. Having been through with DistanceLearningCentre.com, I now know my strengths and weaknesses and am able to turn the weaknesses into strengths. DistanceLearningCentre.com has given me a great opportunity to develop myself, improve my intellectual reasoning, boost my self esteem/confidence, and improve my ability to find solutions to problems with little or no assistance. Overall, my zeal and determination to achieve in my chosen career profession. I am actually short of words about how DistanceLearningCentre.com has really changed my life drastically.
When I applied to DistanceLearningCentre.com, I had no idea of what I was getting myself into, the course is indeed a challenging one, but with the strong and immeasurable words of advise from my tutors, I managed to scale through. Both my level three and level two tutors were superb and I express my gratitude to them. I also thank my wonderful husband for his support and encouragement, without him I wouldn't have been able to complete the course. I really enjoyed every aspect of my course, most especially the psychology modules. I am now looking forward to University admission next autumn.

I chose to do my access course via DistanceLearningCentre.com as I was in Canada on a working holiday visa but wanted to start working on my future at the same time. Initially, I found it hard to get back into - getting into a routine, getting my brain into gear again- but slowly it fell back into place. If I needed support from my tutor, I found that an email was always answered within 24 hours, I also found the forum really helpful as most other people are wondering the same things as you are in regards to the units.
I have no regrets using DistanceLearningCentre.com and found that they were very patient when I was stressing out near the end of the course. I have been offered a place at Brunel University to study Occupational Therapy which I am thrilled about.

I have just finished my Access to HE course with DistanceLearningCentre.com in Psychology. I have always had a passion for learning, although when I decided to return to education I found it was quite hard, just turning 19 and in employment.
I found DistanceLearningCentre.com when I was searching for qualifications. It looked fantastic and I enrolled immediately. The course itsself was tough, although with the support, guidance and inspiration through others, such as my tutor, you soon realise what you are capable of.
I now have a place at Nottingham Trent University to study a BSc in Psychology, planning for a career in Clinical Psychology. I would recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anyone who wants to chase their dream and having the support and guidance in doing so.

DistanceLearningCentre.com gave me the opportunity to reflect on my educational development during my Access Course in social work, opening my eyes to the real challenges that social workers have to face.
I enjoyed the various topics which touched on psychology, social carers, recent case studies and more. The Access Course has given me the strength to a prospective future where I have secured a place at the University of East London on a BA Social Work. Thank you DistanceLearningCentre.com.
