The study part of my course was fine,the materials were ok.I never had feed back from a tutor or even knew my tutors name.On completing my course i waited for my diploma it never arrived.Despite several e-mails on my part I have still to recieve my diploma one and a half years on. I have had to threaten legal action to try to get it.Staff are rude and treat you like an idiot.We do not pay large amounts of money(and YES we are the customer) to be treated with such disrespect.I will NEVER use… Read Full Review

I found ICS great, I had a Fantastic Course. A friend of mine was using another home learning company, I looked online into the course I wanted to do, I found ICS. ICS, i felt was offering a better service and also offered the desired CACHE qualification i needed, which is one of the desired qualifications for a Teaching Assistant role. I phoned ICS and booked the course. I recieved a great resource pack through the post from ICS everything I needed was included. The ICS team were always… Read Full Review

I am currently on my 2nd course with ICS (BTEC Mechanical Engineering) I first signed up to the Engineering drawing and design diploma 2 years ago as I wanted a course that I could do in my own time and didn't have the chance to go to a college because of my work situation. Ive really enjoyed the 2 courses and I feel like I have learn't alot from the courses, my tutor has been really great and responds to my quieries fairly quickly. Its nice to obtain a qualification in your own home at your… Read Full Review

I recently passed my BTEC Advanced Certificate in Electronic Engineering over a span of one year and 3 months. Before I begin, I would like to thank the ICS team and the course tutor for their support, advice and high level of professionalism. I think the course was very well organised and delivered. This includes the course material, duration, marking and the online portal. Their customer service is first class, which I have found very helpful. Also the course is very flexible, especially if… Read Full Review

Hello, I have had a nightmare with ICS. (please see my list of problems below) What I am most concerned about is that when I complained to Ofsted, the Ombudsman and Edexcel (The qualification body for my course) Edexcel said I was not on their records, yet i paid the fee for this around a year ago. I asked ICS about it and they gave me an ID number. When I inquired with Edexcel they said I was registered 4 days ago!! So if I had not complained to ICS would i have received a 'real'… Read Full Review

It was an easy way to get a new diploma, I shouldn`t go to school, I could spend my time with study when and where I wanted. My course was simple, the tutor anwsered back quickly and she was friendly and helpful. I would do it again and I am glad I have done it. The study time was longer, but the English is my second language. I would recomend the course for everybody… Read Full Review

I bought two courses. One was fine, but the other wasnt anything like what i was told. I had asked if i can choose my own exam centre (one dowen the road) But i wasnt allowed. I explained that i couldnt get to the ones they set-but tough luck. So i sent it back, admittedly i should have sent it recorded but they had annoyed me and i wasnt thinking staight. So i get on with the first course, which wasnt good at all-hard to understand no real suppport from the tutor and unintresting. i was… Read Full Review

personally i found the people at ics rude, arrogant, ignorance and down right nasty and difficult to deal with. from phoning to say ive been paid 3 days late and will only be able to pay them ncce im paid and getting shouted at to asking them to move the location of my multiple choice as ll their venues were at least hours from me, then fighing with me, then finally changing it to a closer venue then cancelling it an hour before i got there and took the day off work for it then t finally get… Read Full Review

I have personally been with ICS for three different courses Web Design Diploma Psychology BTEC Level 2 Make-Up Artist And I have to say they are the only distance learning company that I trust to part my money with when dealing with my education. I have returned to them because I can rely on this company to get everything I am looking for to enable me to complete my course sucessfully. ICS maybe slightly pricy but I can honestly say its worth every penny when investing into your future… Read Full Review

It was a very cost effective and flexible way of learning. For my particular course it was useful as didnt require much contact with a tutor. However, I would have found it more difficult if I has chosen a more contact-based course. It gave me the qualification I needed so I am happy and would recommend it to others… Read Full Review

i found the course enjoyable, the help from the tutor could have been slightly better, i found the response from the tutor to be revised replies to the questions asked and not personal, however the tutor was fairly quick to respond. overall i enjoyed the course… Read Full Review

I did Fashion designing and Project management course from ICS. For both the courses, the service was excellent. Tutors were there to help me when ever i wanted. Even the material was uptodate and the content was easy to understand. I am happy to recommend to my friends and also I would take up other courses with ICS in future. Thanks, Deepa… Read Full Review

I am so proud of ICS, and hereby solicit for them to run a distance learning Nursing Top-up Degree programme for oversea nurses especially, those in my dear country, Nigeria.
The fees were paid at my own pace, I chose my exam centres, my study materials were timely, I recieved a lot of support from the ICS team and they also attended my graduation for my BSc. Nursing at the Edinburgh Napier University.
The things I did not like were:
-when my first mentor was changed but the second mentor… Read Full Review

I am currently studdying for CIPD HRP course and have previously done another HR course with ICS.
The mentors are very good as are some of the tutors. Some cant help enogh whilst other totors are not so helpful and I am sure it's because they forget you are studying on your own, from a book, and not getting feedback in a class.
I do think that the workshops could be better organised - not the workshops themselves which are very good - but the organisation of them. I have had 2 postponed and… Read Full Review

I initially registered for an accounting course which i didn't understand though the course guide said there was no accounting experience needed to start the course. i later dropped it and studied personnel management instead and i really enjoyed this course. its probably because of the way the course was presented in the hand book and course book. The hand book and course were presented in a way that makes it very easy to understand. And my tutor always answers my queries right on time to my… Read Full Review

I am very very proud of myself at the moment, didn't think I still had it in me. The Nail Technician's course was AWESOME wish there was a higher level diploma or something to go with it because I am now so pumped!!! Beautiful course from a WONDERFUL organisation. Home learning and getting the marks that I got is a huge esteem booster and knowing that a tutir was just a phone call or e-mail away was a great relief. i would do it all again of I had too. Truly amazing experience. Keep it up!!!!… Read Full Review

Hi, I'm Sharon . Doing a degree course , have been with ICS for the past 3 years and am a 100% , and I mean no less than a 100% satisfied with their service. The mentors are absolutely supportive and are there for you at all times! They respond to emails instantly and resolve any possible issue or concern with no delay. The mentor team often advise as regards writing skills and time management etc. When the mentors are aware that I'm concerened about anything , they phone me to discuss the… Read Full Review

ICS is the WORST company I have EVER come across - all the good reviews are written by them!!! It's obvious by the language used!!!!
They steal your money and offer you NO SUPPORT AT ALL!!!!!
I would NEVER recommend them as they do not deliver what they promise!!!
You receive NO SUPPORT WHATSOEVER - they only get back to you when you threaten to contact trading standards!!!
STAY AWAY FROM THIS BUNCH OF MONEY GRABBING THEIVES!!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review
