100% would recommend if you work full time and find it hard to find time to study. Study at your own pace with amazing tutoring staff, extremely helpful with an awesome attitude! - Rhett D’Silva

The learning materials are very well laid out and easy to understand, my tutor is an absolute dream, I love that I can pickup where I left off anytime I want with no set lesson hours, the questions in the assignments are well worded and easy to answer. 11/10 imo. - Crystal Louise

I was very indecisive as to whether I wanted to study or not however I had such a warm welcome from my tutor and was given all the information and time that I needed to assure this was right for me. As I currently work and do extra curricular activities this is structured perfectly to allow me to pace my studies weekly with the amazing help and constant communication from my tutor when needed. I’m enjoying it so much at the moment as not only is it something I am passionate about but it is something that is so relevant to our society today. - Lana Mcfall
