I am a 32 year old mum to three and wife to one. I chose the AOLL access course to healthcare professions as I was unable to get childcare in order to undertake a similar college course. I instantly liked the way the units could be adapted to accommodate my chosen pathway and everything my favoured uni requested. The help and support from tutors and student services has been amazing, specifically the in depth feedback tutors provide on assignments. Due to health and changes in our family circumstances I've taken thirteen months to complete the course. The flexibility AOLL allows has really helped make the months extension hassle-free. I would say to anyone considering distance learning; make the most of your tutors, they really do know their stuff; and believe in yourself, you can achieve everything you set out to.
