Silas completed his Access course with us in 2017. Here’s what he has to say about his experience:

I am so happy I chose Academy Online Learning because the course was very flexible. I was able to do my military exercises/training and study successfully because of the help from excellent tutors who supported me from start to finish. I would highly recommend AOLL to anyone, both military and civilian, wanting to study for an Access to HE Diploma”.
