  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Katrina Dixson

    My studies are going really well at the moment. At this stage there is not anything that has come up, the physical papers are really good to have on hand. As working through online is good I personally find that working with paper visuals is better for me. The course content at this stage has been good and yes I have been in contact once with the tutors which is great. Epically when feedback is given pretty quickly Knowing you have the 0800 number is great as online can sometimes become confusing (but only at times)

    Some course content was a little light and at times interactive videos may have helped to develope a further understanding but overall I enjoyed the course. The flexibility and able to complete in my own time. I look forward to enrollnig into the course.
