Francisco has recently finished the Level 4&5 IT and Computing course and got accepted by the University of Derby to top up his studies. Read below Francisco’s experience with Online Business School.
Why did you choose to study with Online Business School?
I’m living and working abroad and I wanted to study a Computing degree. I had to find a formula in order to combine everything together and then I thought about distance education, did research and OBS offered the best track, format and I was right when I thought about the best student support.
How would you describe your experience of studying with Online Business School?
Having finished the HND equivalent degree in Computing and Information Systems now I can say that the experience was excellent and the support from the college was brilliant. Both factors are needed when doing distance learning and I’m very happy I chose OBS.
I was able to arrange my studies according to the available time I had everyday allowing me to combine the studies according to my daily needs.
What did you like the most about the course with Online Business School?
Honestly, what it makes OBS stand far beyond other alternatives, the real full support from the staff, so needed when studying by distance. Obviously the materials, structure of the program and available tools were top class but as mentioned above the staff, solving doubts, support and flexibility made my efforts more effective.
Do you have any advice for current or prospective students?
Yes, I would encourage them to pursue their goals and wishes not mattering the circumstances. Nowadays technology allows us opportunities, distance learning is growing and it is for a reason, people as in my case, find that time is priority and with hard work and the right studying institution as OBS is, we get a winning formula to improve and grow our lifes.
What are your plans now?
I got accepted by the University of Derby Online to top up my studies with OBS to a full BSc Honours degree in Computing and Information Systems. And it will be very useful everything I learned not just about computers but about online education from OBS.
Finally I would like to say thanks to everyone there, Laura with her great assistance, Yusuf at the technical side and Matt for guiding me on my studying path.
