THE COURSE REALLY SPARKED A HUGE CONNECTION WITH ME FOR FURTHERING PSYCHOLOGY WHICH I NEVER KNEW I HAD!

‘The ability to study online and in my own time was really appealing.’ Amali says. ‘It enabled me to complete the course within just a few months which was great.’ This isn’t uncommon for our students, as self-paced truly means self-paced, and some students end up moving through their courses faster than the duration which we have on the websites.
