I enrolled at the NEC last year and I asked if it were possible to do my French AS and A2 Level to sit both exams at the same time, I was told yes (on the phone I just felt as if they wanted to get my money).

I'm currently studying a management course with the National Extension College. I have already received two certificates and am now working towards a diploma in management.It's a great way to study if you have a family as you can work when you want to.My company paid for the fees so that helped !I never used to write these reviews but then I read a bad review about my favourite restaurant so now when I receive good service I let people know. This is the first time I've put a review on this website though.

The welcome pack and student hand book has alot of information about the course and what you ... Read the complete review

I recently payed for a Psychology course from this website, The website was very easy to use and understand, When i rung them for information they was really helpfull. The Psychology AS level cost me £208, saving around £50 discount online, You also have to buy a book to go with this but i found it on amazon for £18. =) You can also pay a deposit and then pay monthly installments for your course. I received my course materials a few days later, Included was my course (obviously) a student hand book, welcome pack, etc. I found that everything included was very helpfull, you even get your own tutor to send assignments too but to my understanding your only ...
