After being stuck in administration roles and being made redundant repeatedly, I started studying the course in 2010 as I wanted to go to University and study for my Occupational Therapy BSc (Hons). I'd ruled out the traditional college route as I couldn't afford to give up my full time job.
I found studying the Access to Nursing and Health diploma very easy to fit around my job as with input from my tutor, I could set my own deadlines and even when I found out I was pregnant a few months into the course and that I was being made redundant (again), I managed to finish the course and did much better than I thought I would!
The tutor support has been invaluble, especially when I found it difficult to get my head in the game. The forum has also been a gold mine of support and hints from the other students. I definitely could not have maintained the motivation to finish the course without these support mechanisms.
I now feel confident about studying at degree level and have been accepted to start studying at Coventry University in Sept 2011. I feel prepared for University life and can't wait to get stuck in! Thanks to everyone at DistanceLearningCentre.com (especially my tutor) for the support and encouragement!

I started the DistanceLearningCentre.com course in January 2009 when I went on Maternity leave from work. The DistanceLearningCentre.com course was perfect for me as there were no local colleges which offered the access course and, with being heavily pregnant, I didn't fancy going to college so studying from home was perfect!
I have throughly enjoyed the course and I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to studying so I loved getting stuck into biology, and felt proud of the grades I achieved which I never thought I would be able to. I expected to scrape passes on this course, but I didn't, I excelled myself throughout! I found the tutors excellent. One in particular has been a rock throughout the course and at times even felt like a friend. DistanceLearningCentre.com do well to support you as much as they can and I am proud to be a part of this for the future with maintaining the student forum. I would reccomend this course to friends as it is easy to fit around YOUR life!

Studying with DistanceLearningCentre.com is a life changing experience. I did not realize how good I could be, and the pressure of constant studying will help me fulfil a long lost dream. My tutor is exceptional and all staff at DistanceLearningCentre.com were very supportive. I wish to thank DistanceLearningCentre.com for their care and support and I will be happy to recommend them to anyone.

I decided to study with DistanceLearningCentre.com as I wanted to be able to go to university for undergraduate study but had never completed the traditional A Levels needed to get in. I was pleased to discover that I could study an Access Diploma from home while working part-time and that it would only take a year to complete. I enjoyed the modules and it was great to be able to be self-motivated and disciplined to get the study done on my own. I couldn't have done it without the materials and tutor support provided by DistanceLearningCentre.com. Now I've finished, I am able to finally fulfill my dream to go to university at last and follow my passion into studying Philosophy.

I decided to get back into studying after having my two children, and being at home gave me the opportunity to study with DistanceLearningCentre.com. Studying from home fitted in with my life style as it saved me having to go to college and trying to find child care. I loved every minute of it and had a fantastic tutor that helped me throughout. The other advantage is that you can study at your own pace, and is suitable for people who do go to work and cannot attend college.
The modules were set out really well which made it easier to understand. I did the Access to Midwifery which can also allow me to apply to do nursing or radiography. I am yet to decide which pathway to take and I am in the process of applying to hospitals for work experience to help me decide.
I have gained so much confidence since completing the DistanceLearningCentre.com course as it has given me a qualification that I never thought I would have. I recommend DistanceLearningCentre.com to anybody who is thinking of furthering their education.
