    "Easy to follow layout of study materials"

    - Andrew Watts, Manchester

    I'm finding Psychology Level 3 very interesting with an easy to follow layout of study materials. With having a sight disability, I'm studying at an easy pace with the comfort of knowing the support tutor is only an email away, if help is required.

    Psychology is something I've been looking into for some time now, with my interests in the human mind and the reasons behind human behaviour. I have been telling my friends and family of this course, which has taken their interest by storm and they have said that they'd be interested in seeing just what Open Study College has to offer.

    Right at the start of this course I did get a little puzzled with the lay-out due to never studying from my computer at home (alone with my disability) like this before. So I took it upon myself to contact Open Study College to ask for advice, which was given and greatly appreciated. I am now more confident in myself.
