This is my second time enrolling with…

"This is my second time enrolling with the open study college, and I can’t fault it at all! It’s so flexible and easy to fit in around work and everyday life. The staff are amazing, so polite and helpful whenever you need them, and also very understanding of personal situations! The lady I spoke with (I didn’t catch her name) today to enrol me on my second course was super lovely, so helpful and made me feel very comfortable speaking with her. In an uncertain time like the world is at present, it’s so nice to speak to someone so kind and helpful. I look forward to completing my second course with the open study college!"
