    I choose The Career Academy, because it was an affordable short course! I had started a diploma in Business administration with a different College which was difficult and not at all suitable to what I needed but I was left with a huge debt. The Career Academy course was 100% better with easier to follow instructions! If there was one thing that needed fixing it would be using Debit Success for payments, they are inflexible and do not have facilities for direct credit, which is sad because I enjoyed this clurse, Me would like to further my studies but will not be doing so!

    I think the course is very clear and easy to follow, i really enjoyed the course.
    It would of been great to learn a few more basic things in Outlook. ‘Out of office’ message could be introduced in the course as this is used quite a lot and would of been great to see it in there. I liked the convenience of studying at home.
    Payment options was the big deciding factor, fantastic set up. Great course, great tutors.
