    I think if you can its always best to do the course in college. Depending on cost/time etc. Can you get an advanced learner loan?

    If you cant then there's no difference between the online version and the college one.

    ok thanks , i think college would be better instead the online courses dont provide an advanced learner loan.

    Having just completed my access course I would recommend doing it at a college rather than online. You can get an advanced learner loan for an Access course at college and it is paid off automatically if you further your studies with university.
    It's a fair bit of work that requires plenty of effort but also support from real people that know what they're talking about. Also an advantage of college is that you will have access to their library, laptops/computers and probably get print credits also so you don't waste a fortune printing things out.
    It depends on how you learn really. I love to read and online might seem okay but I can be distractible and it's one thing to read what you're supposed to know but entirely another to have a conversation with someone about it. For me it resonates more having a teacher led class than online.
    Hope you enjoy whatever it is you do anyway

    Has anyone out there used Aspire? Distance learning is the only way forward for me but I can't find any reviews for this company.

    I'm doing an access course via distance learning centre which accept advanced learner loans! I'd recommend them they're really good

    I do like the look of Dimensions, but all their science courses are biology-heavy. The Aspire course is science and engineering which is more in my line, I'm hoping to go on to study computer science. If I can't get a line on Aspire then I might just have to do natural sciences and try to pick up a maths AS alongside it.

    What Access course are you doing with Dimensions Training Solutions? Do you get enough support/help from them?
