The course is put together very well

The course is put together very well. I haven't needed to ask my tutor for anything and I've been using articles online and books for quotes to help answer the questions. I wanted to study History (ww2 specifically) as I've always been fascinated by that period of time, my Grandfather served in ww2 also so I feel a family connection towards it. I'd like to get a small qualification even if I can't use it for anything I'd feel happy about achieving something as it's really important to me to learn more. I'd definitely recommend Open Study College to a friend if they were planning on studying again. So far I've really enjoyed learning through Open Study College and have had a great experience that I hope continues through my course over the next year.
