    Written on: 20/08/2015 by 77Collins

    I would recommend Cambridge open college, it is a great way to learn new things and earn a qualification. I really enjoyed my course and my tutor was very prompt and helpful. The course material was useful and easy to understand. I have learnt to much my doing this course and I didn’t expect it to go so smoothly. I finished 6 month course in 4 months which I was very happy about.

    “Childcare Learning and Development Level 3”

    Written on: 10/08/2015 by 1978Dillon (1 review written)
    I enrolled onto this course as I had heard good things about it and I was very pleased that those good comments were true. It took me approximately 7 months from start to finish and I have really enjoyed it! The level 3 course does require a lot more detail and extra research in order to write a good essay and pass so if you want to complete the course as quickly as possible be prepared to put the work in! I always received my results back within 24 hours with helpful feedback.overall I Really enjoyed this course and would 100% use UK Cambridge open college again.

    ★★★★★ “Learning from home”

    Written on: 26/07/2015 by Rorye491
    I took on a course Early Counselling Skills Level 3 with Cambridge open college as it allowed me to continue working whilst studying at my own pace and being able to do so from home. It was easy to register online and the course materials arrived very quickly. It was all well presented, clear and easy to follow and understand what was needed for me to do. Tutor support was easy to access and they were quick and reliable in their responses. Once work was submitted it was quickly marked and returned to me allowing me to continue further. I enjoyed some of the challenges it offered and the fact that I was able to do the work and submit it at my own pace. All in all I am very impressed with COC and have recommended them to friends whom have since begun studying with yourselves. I would use this company again for studying and have looked into what is on offer to allow me to progress further in my learning and career. Thank you.

    ★★★★★ “Health and Social Care Level 3 Course”

    Written on: 20/07/2015 by Kailee198
    I would like to start off by saying thank you to the person who helped me enrol and to my tutors for their feedback and support.
    It’s been a great learning experience. I was excited about each assignment!
    The only thing that I need to point out is that the Study Guide needs thorough proof reading as I found a few typing errors.

    “Would definitely recommend!”

    Written on: 18/07/2015 by CoryFlores
    I thoroughly enjoyed this course. All the assignments were submitted via email which suited me perfectly. I could study whenever I had time which was also convenient.
    I received excellent support and feedback from my tutors. The study guide states responses will be within 3 days but I always received support/feedback the same day or next day. This is actually really helpful when you are worried about receiving your pass or fail!
    I hadn’t even finished when I was looking for my next course and busy recommending to my friends!

    This was the first time I had done a formal qualification since doing my graduation in 1998, this was quite a scary prospect but I found the support from the tutor helpful on the one occasion that I asked for it.

    “Childcare Learning & Development Level 3”

    Written on: 14/07/2015 by 465McClanahan
    I have thoroughly enjoyed in doing the Childcare learning and development level 3course, it has made me a stronger person in understanding the levels of standards to meet in a childcare setting. Feedback from my tutors as I had two through my course where very efficient and gave me positive feedback which motivated me more in continuing to doing other assignments. As working in a childcare setting and already have my level 2 and now achieving my level 3 has helped me to go up a level, as some day I would like to appy for a senior role within the childcare setting, which by benefiting and doing this level 3, I will be able to do that as it is towards management level.

    “Introduction to Nursing Level 3”

    Written on: 08/07/2015 by xkSweeney1988

    A fantastic way to study whilst working full time and looking after a family. I always had a very quick reply from my tutor and assignments were always marked promptly. I completed the course in less than 6 months. On a less positive note the reading list given I feel was not appropriate

My tutor has been fantastic and very supportive, my assignments have been marked very quickly with great comments and feedback.

    ★★★★★ “Enjoyable way to study”

    Written on: 29/06/2015 by ucBrooks138

    I completed the Life coaching level 3 course as a way to extend my knowledge in a different area to the one in which I am currently employed. The course material was varied and interesting. It provided a useful grounding on which to base the further research necessary to answer the assignment questions.

    My tutor was extremely helpful when answering any questions I had and also when providing my assessment feedback. He gave me confidence and direction in my learning.

    I worked to my own timescale without judgement or question from my tutor and finished the course under the estimated course time.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed studying again through Cambridge and found the whole process rewarding.


    ★★★★★ “A very positive experience”

    Written on: 22/06/2015 by Aaliyah284 (1 review written)

    I have had a great experience with Cambridge open college. My tutor was always very quick to reply and left excellent feed back as to what to do next. All of the information that a received was clear and very helpful. I would definitely recommend a friend to study with you. Learning at home fitted in with my full time job and I found the material I was given along side the course material very useful. A big thank you to my tutor


    ★★★★★ “Highly recommended”

    Written on: 15/06/2015 by Pritchard33

    When I applied for a course with Cambridge Open College, I received my materials within 4 days and could begin immediately. The course is set out in a way that allows you to study in your own time and gives you a full year to complete it.

    You are given a tutor who supports you through everything and gives you valuable feedback after each assignment is completed. I found the feedback to be helpful, encouraging and very efficient- I did not wait more than a day for a response.

    These courses are particularly suitable for people like me who are in full-time work and who would not otherwise be able to get to college every day. If you put the work and effort into it you will gain a wide variety of knowledge in a short space of time. I can’t thank the tutors enough and I look forward to applying for my next level!

    Written on: 07/06/2015 by AhmedNorwood71

    I found my child care course excellent and very helpful. I now feel confident and ready to start my career in my local pre-school . I would like to thank my tutor for all their help and support throughout the course


    ★★★★ “Was Worried”

    Written on: 07/06/2015 by Garrettky481

    When I started this course I struggled a bit on the first couple of modules as it is about 6 years since I left school. I managed to complete them with the help of my tutor and glad to get them finished. Module 3 was quite a big one but I took my time and once I had read through it a few times it went okay. I am now up to module 7 and really getting into it now. If you are thinking about becoming a child minder, I recommend this course as it manages to cover the subjects really well.
