Taking the plunge into online study can be daunting. So, don’t just take our word for it, read these encouraging testimonials from past students on how the experience of education has had a profound impact on their life.
"Studying online is so convenient, I can fit my training in around everything else that I am doing and there is no waiting around either. It is much faster and easier, and I like learning as I go and being able to progress at my own pace. I thought studying online would be hard, but I am really enjoying it."
"I thought it would be hard to stay motivated, but it has not been, and I set a goal of completing 1-2 assessments per week. The mentors have been useful, and I recommend making full use of them while studying. They are incredibly happy to answer questions and to provide guidance." - Sarah H
"Working full time and also looking after a family of four, I really loved the concept of ICS’ Diploma where you are able to prove your learning through online materials/digital platform without having to go through schooling and therefore putting your life on hold for the time of diploma. This has enabled me to continue working as normal and when time allows, going through my learning programmes whenever I have a chance. On this programme you have the flexibility to study from anywhere, at any
time and this is a huge bonus for people who have continually active lifestyles but are still seeking to pursue their passions." - Marine V
