    So I was looking for accredited online courses and found this one course in business management on reed provided by Inspire London College. It normally costs 595 but there's 87% off on reed.

    Not gonna lie 87% off makes me wanna pay the fee now and just start studying, but I'm thinking it may be a scam. Has anyone used reed before? Or should I get the course through Inspire London College's website and pay the full fee?

    Reed as an organisation is legit.

    No idea about London college.

    The 87% off how does that compare to others people offering the course? It might be a very inflated price. Do some research and see if theres any feedback on London college.

    Well I can't find many reviews about Inspire London College (ILC). They do exist because the company is registered with companieshouse since 2013, but I can't find any feedback about their courses. On their website they say they deliver fully accredited qualification by Ofqual and that they do it since last year. The price (595) looks legit comparing to others as it is quite long course (it lasts 360 hours) and 87% off is only available on reed.

    Do your research. Pay with a credit card.

    Look up the course and find the provider, contact them and ask about it.
    Google things like "Reed Inspire London College scam" to check there are no negative reviews or reports of it being a scam.
    Make sore you pay with something that gives you protection if it is a scam (I think credit card or paypal do- check though).

    Nope, didn't find any evidence of ILC being a scam. Moreover, they actually offer campus-based courses and you can google their location, so I think it's safe to assume they're legit. I didn't sign up for their course, though. I'm looking for online courses for which I can get UCAS points, atm.

    Hi There,

    Inspire London College is a total scam. They are delivering spammy course content copied from different websites. I have checked my course materials and they have been copied from various websites. All this has come to big shock to me. Reed should have checked their authenticity before letting them sell the courses through their website. They only started in August' 2017 after changing the name of their IT company to Inspire London College. I am in contact with Reed and definitely want a fee refund. It is my honest advice to all others, please do not enrol with them they are totally scam.

    I was studying construction management course with them, found that course content was spammy. It was copied from Pearson's online sample units and from some other websites. I am so much disappointed. I want a refund and some compensation as well because they have wasted a lot of my time and involved me in the stressful situation. Please suggest what should I do?
