I started the course in March 2015, I had researched distance learning courses and AOLL had amazing reviews, I signed up straight away.

The support I received was very thorough and individualized, my tutors knew my long term goals and we created a learning plan accordingly. They also offered advice on other aspects such as gaining work experience.

Having not done any academic work for years I was very nervous, however the tutors were really good at easing me into studying again and were reassuringly only a phone call away if I needed.

After completing the course in 10 months I can now proudly say that I have now secured a place to study midwifery next year. It is thanks to AOLL that I have managed to get this far and I now feel really prepared for university studies.
