Think reasonably

AdvantagesEasy to understand studying material, great and quick tutor feedback, reasonable prices

DisadvantagesSome questions require searching more information outside of the given study material

"...mind that it is a DISTANCE learning college. How many people are needed to run THAT? Do you honestly expect 600 different tutors for 600 courses? Think reasonably! Also, people should stop complaining about refunds, if you're not sure about it then don't jump into buying a course and later complaining. Moreover, the college is registered with the UK Register of Learning Providers and accredited by NCFE awarding body, what else do you need? I loved ..." Read review

The best thing I ever did!

AdvantagesExcellent course material, tutor notes, back-up services, associated reading.

DisadvantagesNone that I can see!

"Taking on a Drug and Alcohol Counselling Course with Stonebridge Associated Colleges was simply the best thing I ever did! I was wary, at 51 years of age, of trying anything that seemed like going 'back to school', but the course is fantastic. My tutors notes, which appear on every assignment that I send off are succinct, thoughtful and very helpful. On the occasions that I've phoned the college with a query, they have been unfailingly polite and ..." Read review

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - Great Value and Excellent Content

AdvantagesGood structure, excellent content, supportive staff and tutors

DisadvantagesNone, it's an excellent course, well thought out

"Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - Excellent Course and great value This was an excellent course, with good structure and great content. Presented with a quiet yet humble authority, for the novice it would be of great use, for the more established practitioner it would help them both deepen and broaden their knowledge base. The course itself has a good blend of case studies, legislation and theory to help anyone wanting to begin a career ..." Read review
