“Definitely needs improvement ”

Written on: 19/12/2016 by MonicaPruitt (1 review written)

I am currently enrolled in the AAT level 2 course and so far it has been a shambles. When I first started, everything was going fine and I had my materials on time (better than most). As the course progressed, it was as if we were forgotten about. Every question asked either doesn't get a reply at all or it can take up to a week! When we completed 1 of 2 practice assessments, we were told we could book our exam. I obviously went on to do this under tutor advisement, Only to then find out we… Read Full Review

“Deffinitely not for everyone ! ”

Written on: 22/01/2016 by tamaskrfodor (1 review written)

Very easy at the beginning but very hard over all. Definitely not recommended to those wants everything at once. The study material is okay how ever, I always and still have my blind spots in Accounting. I mean I know what is in my book, but I always aware of something I might not know. It might be part of the course I don`t know. How ever it made me to read University books about Accounting and many other so in general I know a lot more already but still confident with my self. Like I dance on… Read Full Review

“GOOD TUTOR, VERY POOR STUDENT SERVICES SUPPORT!”

Written on: 30/12/2015 by Raident371 (1 review written)

I would not recommned anyone to pursue their studies with Home learning college. Although my tutor is very helpful, the Assignements are confusing and if you need any help from the student services department in regards to finances they do not help you ! Regardless if you lose your job midway during the course or even if your are experiencing financial difficulty there is no support or financial help what so ever! Save yourself the unncessary hassle!… Read Full Review

“DO NOT TOUCH WITH A BARGE POLE”

Written on: 29/10/2015 by joannerallen (2 reviews written)

Signed up for Digital Marketing course 2 years ago. I was totally mis-sold the course. Was told someone without marketing experience would easily be able to complete it. Very untrue. The work documents are extremely confusing and I found I spent more time trying to decipher what the actual task was than completing assignments. I truly believe, had this not been the case, then I would have had more chance of completing the course in time. But, due to certain matters, I was unable to complete the… Read Full Review

“Avoid this 'education' provider at all costs.”

Written on: 29/03/2015 by Kianaj119 (1 review written)

Too many gaps in the course that need supplementing with other material. Instructions become rather vague and confusing as you advance through the course. Towards the end of my final book, so much information was crammed in what appeared to be in haste which should have been introduced gradually throughout, and in digestible format to enable one to retain effectively to memory. A threadbare set up of 'tutors' who do not appear to have university background. They are unimpressive and… Read Full Review

I enrolled with the college on advice from one agent who promised to give me a job here in England. After noting the poor customer care and I decided to drop out. They are not threatened to take me to debt correctors. Please if you enrol read the contract agreement. Even if you drop out, basing on financial position, you be made to pay… Read Full Review

“Research other education providers before parting with...”

Written on: 02/02/2015 by Ashworthwv73 (1 review written)

When I started my Basic Bookkeeping course, which involves manual and then progresses onto computerised, I felt that the material provided could have been presented professionally and of higher quality. Quite a few typos and grammatical bloopers found in the books. Explanations could have been expanded with clearer examples; I felt as if the authors were getting themselves all tethered up and this left me feeling a little panicky because I was uncertain if I was grasping the concepts clearly!!!… Read Full Review

Lilchica1982's Comment

Hi There.

I completely agree with your comment ref home learning college. I signed up to do level 1 manual 2 computerised and sage. I made it through to assignment 5 on level one and then the hlc announced the syllabus was changing. I've since found out there's been various live class recordings which I've not been able to access due to a. Having no reminders and b. Personal commitments. Despite the fact I have phoned emailed etc the tutors about this they've not really helped. The course was incredibly expensive and I also regret doing it through the home learning college. There's no chat room as such where you can communicate which fellow students and I feel for a college and with amount of technology available now they could do a lot better to support students through there studies. I have however found the ICB very helpful and supportive. Good luck with your studies

After reading previous reviews, I decided to go with Training-Link, and was soooo pleased I did!! No problems, great materials, marking was prompt, fair and informative. I'd highly recommend Training-Link if you're considering any further bookkeeping study (as that's what they specialise in).

“Never again”

Written on: 20/01/2015 by Dhanish (1 review written)

I would certainly recommend staying away from this so called college. I was told to download a software which was recommended in order to continue with the course however this didn't work as they gave me one for old windows. When i enquired about this, i didn't get much response and they even had the nerve to claim it showed on their system that it was working fine. when I replied they didn't even have the decency to reply and that was nearly two years ago. Im not able to cancel this course as… Read Full Review

Von1Uk's Response to Dhanish's Review

Written on: 23/04/2015

i had a lot of problems with them, was given the wrong books they where for a previous year i was doing sage payroll. I had a lot of problems, couldnt log into the site for a few weeks, this happened a few times.
My software (payroll) was the wrong year, i felt like the tutors wernt very sympathetic towards you if you were struggling. It took me a few years to complete my course due to this and i never passed my exam i got 83% out of 85% which was a pass and funnily enough a few others got the same results.
I took my exam in feb 2014 and havent done a re-sit as i will have to pay for current year software and a resit exam.
The exam was nothing like what we where taught either.
I would def not recommend them it cost me about £1,500 in total. I wanted to cancel a few into the course but couldnt

“Unprincipled. Unethical. Incompetent.”

Written on: 30/11/2014 by TheBoots (1 review written)

I was on HLC's "Google Squared" digital marketing course (£1,500 for six months). The course content was dismal (you could have got it from two good books and watching some videos on youtube); individual assessment from (and contact with) tutors was precisely zero; sales-people (sorry, "admissions tutors") told people whatever lie they thought appropriate to gain a sale (claiming in many cases that it was "equivalent to a masters"). HLC claimed to be working with Google on this project (a… Read Full Review

Booked an AAT accounting course then after viewing all the info and modules found out that it wasn't the right course for me. Cancelled two days later by email and by phone. Emails only returned after 72 hours. When calling they won't give you a yes it's been cancelled say we will reply to email in 72 hours. You call a few days later and it will be done you still within the limit time to cancel. No it was to be cancelled on the day but no. Call again then get an email that it has been… Read Full Review

“HAD TO PAY OVER £1000 EVEN WHEN TOO ILL TO STUDY!”

Written on: 25/06/2014 by 119Finn (1 review written)

I joined HLC and about a month after I became ill and was signed off work etc, I sent letters to HLC and proof but they continued to make me pay the balance of around £1300 even though I was too poorly to study at all. I was absolutely disgusted with this company and would never recommend signing up to anything!… Read Full Review

“Bookkeeping courses”

Written on: 09/04/2014 by 1954Lewis (1 review written)

I have recently completed my level 2 computerised bookkeeping course after a gap of around 18 months, as such the material has moved on somewhat but the older version is still available to use on the internet portal site. I particularly like the way the course has been broken down into bite sized chunks and the working assignments in the book which you mark yourself are excellent and prepare you well for the exam. I did not like the tutor marked assignments which were short answer format and… Read Full Review

“Computerised Accounting for Business”

Written on: 09/04/2014 by JanineBlack (1 review written)

I signed up for IAB levels 1, 2,and 3 in Computerised Accounting for Business using Sage 50, following redundancy from the County Council in 2011. Levels 1 and 2 completed within 8 weeks and then it was up to me to get started for level 3! Home issues held me back and in the end I was pushed to finish in time and had to ask for a one month extension to tutorial support, which was easily arranged through Student Services. However, I found the course easy to follow, and the tutorial support… Read Full Review
