Maybe you could add a few more details about the cost of using them (i.e. do they charge a fee per course being taken, or is it better value to take more than one course). Also, do you know how broad the range of courses available are - is it just A Level/AS Level or does it range from GCSE to degree level and do they offer vocational courses or BTECs etc? Was there a particular reason you chose to use this college in the first place? by KateHurst

This actual review could benefit from being proof read itself :) You mention that people shouldn't waste their money but you haven't indicated how much you actually paid for the course. Do let me know (via a guestbook message) if you update and I'll be happy to reread/rerate as appropriate :) by anonymili

How much was the course? What was the venue like? by Bollinger28
Maybe you could add something about how the course was structured - were you divided up into groups or was it one large group, was there a variety of activities or were they all very similar and how much did it cost?Do the courses run regularly and are meals/refreshments provided? by KateHurst

Excellent detailed review. I always think that noting the taught hours per week underestimates the amount of work that you might end up doing. I seem to remember working ten hour days during my 2nd year at Uni (mind you, I did none at all during the 3rd year - but that's another story). by hiker

Digbycat has good advice.. Hope it goes well. by catsholiday
Try checking out Open University, they are much more geared up to the adult distance learner than you've described here and you can start with a diploma then use the same study towards a degree - good luck with whatever you chose M x by Digbycat
