I have completed 2 courses with Stonebridge. On both occasions I have been fortunate to encounter a high quality distant learning service. I would recommend Stonebridge to my friends and family. During my studies it was helpful to proceed with the course at my own pace to help me balance my work and studies. The feedback I received was prompt and the comments were always helpful and encouraging. The course material was easy to access and follow. Thank you Stonebridge for the opportunity and keep providing the excellent distant learning service in the future.

Studying with Stonebridge Associated Colleges has been a fantastic experience. I have recently completed an Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Sciences & Humanities) with the college, which due to geographical constraints would have been impossible for me to achieve at a conventional 'red brick' college. Moreover, being able to set my own schedule for completion of the course allowed me to factor in extra time for events I knew were coming up, such as a house move - something a local college couldn't have accommodated. The quality of the course materials provided was second to none, with excellent suggested reading materials to enhance your understanding and obtain grades from the higher end of the spectrum with due diligence. Having studied for professional qualifications from distance before with other providers, at the start of the course I was quietly resigned to being left to my own devices with anything I didn't understand - nothing could have been further from the truth! The support provided has been better than I could have hoped for even at a conventional college, and the knowledge and expediency of the tutors really facilitates achievement. Of course, studying from distance does have its own inherent challenges, but if you are considering an Access Diploma then I'd argue this is in fact a positive, as the discipline and scheduling required will be what is needed to succeed at university - and this seems to be looked very favourably upon when mentioned in personal statements! Whilst my grades are awaiting ratification, I fully expect to exceed the requirements for my university, a Russell Group institution very near the top of the league tables for my chosen degree. I am rarely compelled to write reviews, especially gushing ones such as this, but Stonebridge really have exceeded my expectations in every way possible. My comments only refer to my chosen Access Diploma, however if the quality of content and support for their other courses are half as good as they were for this, I wouldn't hesitate to study with them again.
