What do students think about our approach to Distance Learning?

"So far my experience with the UK Open College has been really positive! My tutor has always replied to any queries I have and so far I have managed to complete 5 units successfully. UK Open College have said that they will mark work within 5 working days of submission and they have definitely kept to that so far. I have had no issues and think they have been really super with their customer service; they are organised, sharp and positive."
