The study material arrived quickly and in good order. I was put in touch with my personal tutor efficiently, and he has already been very helpful. I have obtained textbooks (hard copy) and dictionary (electronic) as backup. I am just finishing another course and plan to start the A Level Geography in April I like the way the Open Study College organises its courses and look forward to another interesting and enjoyable year.
