Wish I had opted for this course at school – but didn’t. I’m doing this course in my gap year before going to uni as my degree has a business element to it and I need to improve my knowledge of the subject.
Studying with Oxbridge has brought me one step closer to fulfilling my desire of gaining a higher education.
I had a poor experience with a college a few years ago, so decided to sign up for a home learning course in a different subject. I enrolled with Oxbridge after a chat with one of their course advisors, and started my course straight away, still full of motivation from speaking with my advisor. I’ve just submitted my first piece of work to be assessed.
