“Waste of time”

Written on: 04/12/2014 by Mohamedn66 (1 review written)

The website is unhelpful, better resources found independently on the net and certificate not sent at the end of the course. There is no contact number to call if you have an issue and so a total waste of time and money!… Read Full Review

“teaching assistant course review”

Written on: 10/11/2014 by Stacey.C (1 review written)

I purchased a my distance learning teaching assistant course last year and 3 week later got diagnosed with Breast cancer. I rang and asked for a refund as I was in no mental or physical state to study at that time. They refused to refund me and told me to sell the course on myself to someone who could take it over. I hadn't the time or energy to advertise it so I lost my money and I am very upset with how I was treated in such extreme circumstances. Very unhelpful and uncaring people. Stacey… Read Full Review

Hi,
Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We do value feedback from our students. Whilst we do have very clear refunds policies that are set out in the terms and conditions section of our website, we can and do override these due to students' personal circumstances. I cannot comment on the decision that was taken at the time, however if you could let me know your full name and student number I will arrange for the matter to be considered again.

Kind regards
Mark Lawrance.

“AVOID!! Don't waste your money!”

Written on: 01/09/2014 by KamrenWilson (1 review written)

This company is a joke! All of these previous positive reviews have suddenly come to light due to the fact the My Distance Learning College are asking people to give a positive review in return for the students to have a free extension of their work! How about you give us the course certificates that we paid for instead? Recently it has been announced that this college is no longer giving out the qualifications/certificates that people sign up for. No refunds either. I'm halfway through a… Read Full Review

Thank you taking the time to post your comments. Course certificates are issued by the relevant awarding body not colleges such as MyDistance Learning College.

With regards to the dispute between MDLC and NCFE. Firstly I would just like to clarify that My Distance Learning College is not been terminated and we are advising all student to continue with studies as normal. We are currently in dispute with NCFE however this doesn't mean that our students will not receive accreditation upon completion, any students on IIQ courses who are not registered with NCFE will be registered with our new awarding body Focus Awards. Here is a link to a recent statement that has been released by MDLC. Please read through the statement and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

I am very upset I enrolled in July paid in full like a fool
Unfortunately I've not been able to start my course due to illness and other reasons one reason was due to the fact I was not informed of the dispute over the the awarding body .
I want my money back in full
I am a lone parent Working and I've saved like mad to enrole on one of theses courses , I'm devastated that I may not get my money back £300 surly DLC knew the problems they were encountering before I enrolled !
One angry and disappointed student

“Great Online Learning College”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by darkhorse86 (1 review written)

My experience with My Distance Learning College has been great since the beginning when I signed up and purchased my Health & Social Care course. I have had absolutely no problems so far and my tutor is friendly, very encouraging and available to help me whenever I need it. I am still doing the course, nearly finished and I can say that I will not hesitate to buy another course from MDLC in the future… Read Full Review

Just be careful before you begin to think they are great. I thought so too, sfter posting my portfolio in May I have yet to receive my qualification. They are having issues with Cache and various other awarding bodies leaving people feeling like they have bought a scam course I hope it goes well for you but there a lots of people like me who are furious and disappointed that they will not receive their qualification.

“Excellent method to study”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by rqMilne171 (1 review written)

I took the SEN Teaching Assistance course, my tutor sent me all the units and assignments for all my course, I really like studying online, after work or on my free time, nobody push me to finish quick and they checked my homework each time I sent it, if something wasn't good they let me do my homework again, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND my distance learning. After I got my certificate I applied for work now I have been offered two jobs, so I am very happy. Thanks to My distance Learning, I wish they… Read Full Review

Thank you for posting your comments. We do understand your concern regarding your certificate. Whilst certificates do normally take 6-8 weeks to come though to us from the awarding body there are currently delays which are beyond the control of MyDistance Learning College. We are working to try to resolve the issue. As soon as we receive your certificate we will post it to you. Thank you for your patience.

“I had every support I needed”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by 329Penn (1 review written)

The school provided me with sufficient information and materials that I needed for the course. The structure of the course was excellent, easily understood. My tutor gave me feedback on my assessment within 5 days each time after submission and replied to my emails instantly. I am satisfied with MDLC and would like to use them in the future too. … Read Full Review

I'm about to complete my first course, just have my final assignment to submit. The whole process has been easy, and I've found the work interesting. My assignments have all been marked within a couple of days, and it's good to read the feedback from tutor. I was concerned about how the current situation is going to affect my studies, but have been assured that I will still receive my certificate on completion. I am happy with my experience of MDLC so far, and would consider undertaking… Read Full Review

Almost finished this course, found the course easy to follow with clear set questions and help at hand when needed. I didn't have to wait days for feedback. More then happy to do more course this way. I've done other online course and found them complicated with very little help. This one is value for money. … Read Full Review

In light of recent events with the dispute between ncfe and mdlc it appears the victims are the students. My assignments remain unmarked and my emails ignored.

“The fault is not with MDLC.”

Written on: 30/08/2014 by Taryn161 (1 review written)

Personally I've found the HLTA Course absolutely fine. The fee was appropriate. I chose to have hard copy study aids as well as on line. They duly arrived in no time at all, very nice and professional looking. I will be honest and perhaps found the website at times a little confusing, but I think thats my lack of IT skills. I have particularly liked the way assignments have always been marked and returned before due dates, with good critical praise and encouragement. Questions have always… Read Full Review

“Flexible way to study & excellent student support”

Written on: 30/08/2014 by FH2014 (1 review written)

Chose MDLC initially as course was great value for money and an online course felt most appropriate to fit in around day to day life. For someone who had not studied for a fairly long time, I found the website and tools easy to use. Their support is fantastic. They keep you up to date and have your best interests at heart. Feedback on assignments is always positive, encouraging and marking has been within 3 or 4 days instead of the suggested 10 days that they say. They respond to queries very… Read Full Review

My distance home course is perfect for me I'm a mum of 4 and work 16 hours a week in a primary school nursery. All the best jobs have come up and I can't even get an interview because I don't have a qualification BUT with this NVQ level 3 home course I'm working towards getting that certificate to hopefully better myself in my work place. With the my distance learning they respond pretty quick when I've submitted my work and when I've resubmitted their feedback is always reassuring and words… Read Full Review

“Months of studying wasted.”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by EmilieMcCleary472 (1 review written)

I had already compled a course with MDLC and was happy with how it had gone so signed up to do the HLTA course. I completed this in April and since then have had nothing but problems in trying to obtain my certificate. The course was completed long before MDLC went into dispute with NCFE so I believe that had MDLC registered me as a student with NCFE, I would have not had any problems obtaining my certificate. I'm now faced with having to look for another provider and redo the course as well as… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Distant Learning College”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by shipp1 (1 review written)

I have seen the adverse publicity that MDLC have been receiving over the last couple of weeks and I can honestly say I would use them again for any further studying I would do. They respond very quickly to any query you may have. When submitting assignment marking I have received it back at least a week earlier than due. When I do receive feedback even if I need to resubmit the feedback I receive is first class and never negative. Good for them. … Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2014 by Stourboy (1 review written)

I was very concerned about being able to return to learning at the age of 50, My Distance learning gave me just the courses I needed for work . I completed the HLTA level 4 only recently and I am know awaiting my certificate , the course was very in depth covering areas from Early Years, SEN, through to proffessional self development. The online college site us very easy to navigate and submit your assignments at any hour, and if you need any questions answered you have the support of a online… Read Full Review

“Higher Level Teaching Assistant Course.”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by Shonabaker65 (1 review written)

My Distance Learning College experience has been great, any problems you just email and you get a prompt response, either from tutor or college. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends. You can have a hard copy of the course, but it does cost extra, but it's not a huge sum. The course informs you of any other qualifications you may need to complete. The work is at your own pace, no one hassles you for assignments, they are clearly explained and easy to understand. You can send… Read Full Review
