Many of our students every year send us feedback describing their ADL online distance learning experience. It’s not possible to list all the testimonials, as the list is too extensive. So below are a few samples.
We welcome all comments about ADL, our courses, administration and support services. Listening to you, the learner helps us to continually improve our services and enhance your learning experience.
See what our students think!
I enjoyed the course and learnt some new things. How, to structure client meetings as
well as to ask open questions. Considering clients perceptions, motivations, barriers,
and working with people as individuals.
Some things I knew already but felt that it clarified what I already did. etc. and enjoyed
some of the challenges that I met within the modules.
The tutors were very good and gave me plenty of food for thought and challenges.
As I am an employment support worker for a mental health service, I often experience
other concerns, challenges, and barriers with the clients that I support back
into work or volunteering.
I enjoyed the way the course was structured and gave me enough time to research
and did not feel under pressure to complete within a certain time scale.
Most of my course I was supported by Iona Lister and the last two modules I was
supported by Tracey Jones.
Both tutors were very good and thorough. Work that I submitted was completed in good time.
As I did not feel that I wanted to continue to the next module until the previous module
was signed off.
Both gave really good feedback on my work that I presented and also information
and comment to inspire me, that I may not have thought about which I will keep
with me for my future reference.
Enjoyed the course and found it inspiring and enabled me to challenge myself.
All staff support was very good from start to finish and all paperwork and payment
went smoothly and quickly. My account was very easy to understand and access.
I am SNEHA , a student of ADL. I have completed my course in ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN CHILD PSYCHOLOGY.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my tutors Mr. Lee Raye, Mrs. IONA Lister and Mrs Tracey for being my guides in my journey of learning. I have become rich in knowledge under their great guidance.
I would like to thank the entire support staff who have been there with me and for me whenever I needed any technical assistance.
I thank the Administrator for designing such a wonderful course material for students like me, who need flexibility in study time.
THANK YOU – Warm regards
I have completed my landscaping course and received my certificate and transcript.
I wanted to thank you for being a wonderful tutor. I would eagerly look forward for your remarks because they were so thorough and detailed and helped me immensely in understanding my shortcomings.
Thank you for all your guidance and support. If ever you plan to come to Delhi do let me know.
I would love to meet you and show you the gardens and parks around.
Wishing you all the best in life,
“The course was definitely a valuable learning experience for me.
The course met my expectations because I am more informed about the weather patterns and how they are connected to climate change and also I was taught how to do a climate change project.
My tutor was Sandie Bowden. All of my assignments were marked really fast and returned to me with excellent comments and she pointed out my weaknesses and how to improve on my assignments going forward. I did not have any difficulties with any of the modules.
I received excellent service from the school administrative staff. All my questions were answered really fast.
I think it would be a good idea if you guys can offer an associate degree in the environmental field in the future”.
“The course was a valuable learning experience as it provided me the opportunity to expand my
theoretical knowledge when applying it to academic journals and research.
My tutor, provided good feedback when it came to grading my assignments and answering any
inquiries I may have had. Grades and messages via the communication board were
Pleasant experience that afforded me the opportunity to work things at my own pace and
fit learning to my own schedule while receiving good feedback from my tutor and administration alike”.
“The modules within the course covered a vast number of areas required to be a competent Career counselor and will anable me to offer my students the very best advice regarding their careers and how to put this into action.
I have completed many home study courses in the past. This from ADL is without a doubt the most intense learning that I have completed. I felt that because of the amount of research I had to do, to enable me to fully meet the criteria, I have learned so much.
The option to do a small project instead of an exam was brilliant for me, as it is a long time since I had to do exams, and find that I am much better when the work submitted is attributed to gaining a certificate.
I fully intend to take another ADL course and Cara has been very helpful in pointing me in the right direction.”
“Simply to say thank you ADL and thank goodness I found you! It’s been so much fun and so informative throughout my time with you, and to have learnt so much and been so well supported whilst also working a job was fantastic and so rewarding.”
Thanks so much for your reply, I have attached the assignment to this email. I believe I will start on Vertebrate Zoology next Cara, thanks so much again, it has been a delight.
Yours kindly – Philip
Thank you for the feedback on my latest Assignment (number 7). Your feedback is
always relevant and I find it really helpful in giving me direction.
Hope you have a nice break!
That’s great, thank you very much.
I learned a lot from this class. and was able to share what I learned for every lesson I took with my fellow colleagues.
More power to ADL and it has been a great learning experience for me and an honor to be part of this class.
Without your encouragement, I would have been giving up at the very beginning. With your thoughtful support, I really enjoyed my learning journey with ADL. Please accept my sincere gratitude for your support available to me in the past 2 years.
Hope you all well with you. Best wishes, Wing.”
“I hope this email finds you well.
I just want to inform you that I have completed all the assignments for my Operations Management Course. I would like to know what the following steps are?
Also, based on the very helpful feedback given by the ADL team, I have decided to move forward with obtaining a BSc in Computer Science. The modules I have completed with ADL have allowed me to successfully enroll in an ATHE certified programme for a Bsc where I will then complete a top-up BSc programme with Arden University.
I would not have been able to do this without the help and qualifications that ADL has given me, and I truly appreciate it.
All the best”
“The course was an excellent learning experience. I gained many techniques to be able to help children and adults who struggle to express themselves verbally.
All the lessons were interesting and easy to follow and understand. The feedback was very personal and enjoyable to read with many great comments.
I would like to thank anyone involved in this fantastic course.”
That is fantastic news. I have never studied with an institution, so efficient and focused on individual needs. Well done to all of you! “
“I have been opened up to the things that I never thought I would know.
The course was well structured and detailed – easy to follow.
I received good service, especially from Mama Cara Gage. She is Awesome!
I wish that ADL could offer modules up to a degree level!!
Wishing you all the best!!
“I just wanted to say thank you for the feedback you have given me on my
assignments so far.
It is lovely to complete a course where the feedback is not just a generic
‘Congratulations you have completed this module’ so I really appreciate the
time you have taken, and your further insights into Play Therapy.
I am really enjoying the reading and the research. Have a good week. Kind regards, Emma”
I appreciate all your ADL courses very much, because they are very practically oriented. (University programmes ought to be like ADL courses!!!)
I have been admitted to a MSc International Criminal Justice programme and I will try to tackle it as well as possible. If everything else works out well (after this programme), then I will come back to ADL.
Meanwhile, I wish you all the best for your future!
Thanks very much. Yes it has been a very interesting program and because I am working in a related field it became more enjoyable.
I liked the program because we do psychological assessments almost on a daily basis and it is the reason I opted to take a study in it.
Your resources have been very good and I have compiled them so I can be able to train others and will recommend some of our staff to also take the similar program.
“I also want to thank you, Iona Lister, and the rest of the team for organising the course. It has been an amazing learning experience that I have valued so much and the course content was incredibly engaging and enjoyable to work with”.
“The course was designed in such a way as to encourage lots of research and real-life experiences. It was also good at getting me to prepare in case I would like to practice as a horticultural therapist.
The lessons were informative and then the set tasks forced me to test my understanding of the lesson. I did receive good feedback from my tutor Susan Stephenson and felt very much encouraged by the notes she gave.
Cara (Student Support) was always polite and extremely helpful consistently throughout the course.
I really enjoyed the course and feel proud to have completed it. I love the transcript and feel it is such an excellent bonus as it validates all the work that goes into the final award. I manage a therapeutic garden in a homelessness charity”.
“It was the best online platform and support I ever used. It was also great and very comprehensive.
Iona Lister was my tutor and she was great! She provided great support and guidance. I am very pleased I got to study having her as a tutor.
I cannot praise Cara (Student Support) enough – very attentive and polite, always helpful”.
“The tutors were experienced, knowledgeable, and committed to providing corrections and suggestions to my assignments. Not only are they friendly and kind, but, they are also willing to take time to assist me in the process of my novel writing.
I like the quizzes (self-tests) to check our understanding at the end of the lesson/topic”.
“All four courses provided very valuable information. Research had to be done in order to write the assignments, had been most valuable for understanding and enhancing the topics the assignments complemented the lessons significantly and stimulated profound work. It was an enjoyable journey.
I learned much more than I expected when starting and I am really happy with the outcome.
For courses Bag205/6/7 I worked with my tutor, Alison Pearce. Her deep knowledge in this matter was always helpful. She was really pushing me to get the most out of the courses. I honestly enjoyed the work With Alison.
BAG212/103 I worked with Susan Stephenson. I am very happy about her feedback and additional input in these courses. I liked her fast response.
Support was always perfect. Amanda, Cara, and Luke were great support.
I am very positively surprised by how much I have learned in these months. I used the time to work consistently on the material daily. I must honestly admit that I like the way it works and the cooperation with a tutor. Perfect!”
“It was definitely a valuable learning experience to get one step closer to my dream of workings as a professional dog trainer. The course and the Certificate that comes with it can allow me to do that.
I liked having the lesson in pdf format and I enjoyed the self-evaluating tests that came with it.
I really enjoyed writing the assignments and I found that the tasks and questions were more comprehensive than the lesson, meaning that one has to carry out further research on their own to be able to write a complete assignment.
The relationship with the tutor surpassed my expectations. I absolutely loved talking to my tutor, Iona Lister, and I wasn’t expecting to get such tailored feedback on my assignments. I came with the expectations that her answers would be ‘standard’ to the assignment, but I could tell she was referring to things I wrote. She was also credibly supportive and encouraging, she made me feel proud of my work.
Overall, I’m extremely grateful to the Academy for the experience and for coming out of the course with such high grades and confidence”.
“Thank you very much for your corrections and advice here and there.
In order that you understand me a little bit better: I have taken this course Environmental Assessment just for pleasure and I wanted to get to know the content of Environmental Assessment.
I was not so much interested in the layout, references, grades, etc. but I wanted to learn what Environmental Assessment is all about. I am not searching a job anymore in the future. I am already theologian (MTh, USA), teacher of the German language, anthropologist (PhD, France), and crime researcher (MSc, UK) and 68 years old.
This Certificate in Environmental Assessment course, is now the second course which I pursued with ADL and I earnestly believe that people taking ADL courses learn more and more intensively things (because of the courses structures and practical applications) than in every University programme which I have got to know so far. I like ADL courses very much. Have a good day!”
“First few assignments but so far so good. The portal is brilliant, it’s like my old university one. Friendly tutors and really quick marking. Course is great and assignments are challenging. Top class!”
“It was a valuable learning experience. The theory provided a very good base for future practice. My tutor was Vicky and I received good feedback from her.
Cara Cage gave excellent service and always available to help. I want to thank Vicky and Cara for their help and good advices”.
Thanks a lot, It was my pleasure to be with you all. Any future opportunity of studying with ADL will be intimated accordingly.
“Thank you for the certificate. I really enjoyed the course and wanted to say thank you for the great tutorials and feedback on assignments“.
“It was useful to undergo as it confirmed that I had the knowledge and understanding to pursue a career in Business Coaching. It also provided insight into some of the requirements potential clients will have from a Business Coach“.
“To say thank you for your support, your tutelage, your encouragement and mostly for believing in me.”
“The course was extremely valuable: it was enjoyable, challenging and relevant to my needs.
My tutor was Iona Lister. I could not have wished for a better tutor: very efficient, very encouraging, very knowledgeable. I always looked forward to receiving her comments and always learnt a great deal from them.
Everything was well organised and seemed very professional”.
“The course has enabled me to get a grounding in supervision practice and models, and how best to establish a supervision structure for services within the organisation I work for. The course met my expectations. The content was clear and the level of work was as it was advertised.
I received useful feedback from my tutor Iona Lister, which was constructive and also positive. I was able to derive clear ways that I could improve my work when needed.
The service was prompt and responsive to my needs. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have found it very helpful”.
“Yes guys, address is correct.
And again many thanks to my tutor Iona Lister.
I really enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it.
“The course was of huge value due to the comprehensive topics covered in all modules, with a great mix of research work, reading materials and set tasks to complete which when all added together complemented each other very well. The level that was expected of you, made you put the time and effort in with the studies and so at the same time enhanced the learning knowledge gained.
My tutor for most of my modules was Juliette Harris, and what a wonderful lady, awesome support throughout, quick to mark returned assignments with great feedback and encouragement. I cannot thank Juliette enough for her continued help and guidance.
Also, both Amanda and Cara from student support team have been amazing with quick responses to questions raised, emails back within the day sent and great student support. Thank you both for your help, it made my studies so much easier.
Great value for money, great course with so much learnt and has more than prepared me for a new career and a course I feel that has truly reflects the qualifications earned. Any would be be student out there considering the ADL for their studies and development you won’t go wrong by taking this route. ADL once again a massive thank you”.
Thank you so much for your email. I am delighted I did the course with your organisation and what I have learned is unparalleled.
It even surpassed my expectations. Not only was I taught about roof and walls, but the fact that I had to write 14 plant reviews after every assignment gave me an opportunity to study plants. It was extra value added.
I believe the course was value for money and if I had to do another course online, I would be most delighted to take it at ADL”.
“Dear Manny (tutor)
Just wanted to say a big thank you for being so supportive and motivational. I was not expecting to enjoy Environmental Assessment, but in the end found it very interesting and wanted to do well. Very best wishes.” Claire
Thank you very much for the call yesterday. I highly appreciate the time and effort you put into giving me more details about the Pre-Medical programme I enquired about.
I felt satisfied with the outcome of the call, knowing more about the course, and I left with a good impression of ADL based on their representative – you! All my questions were answered and you were most helpful.”
“Kindly find my 8th and final assignment on Playground Design course.
I can’t wait to receive your comments and mark as usual. What is my next step? There is an exam?
I would like to thank all you all. It takes too long for me to finish the course but I enjoyed every chapter on it and I would like to thank you all for your help and support.
I will not stop here, I would like to register in new courses with you that is related to landscape and gardening. Thank you again and have a nice day day.”
“Greeting from the Seychelles Cara.
Thank you for sending my certificate and transcript. I was looking forward to receiving them.
It was a pleasure to learn and study with ADL.
Regards to all my tutors on my several modules. They were amazing and their comments were valuable.
I definitely will contact you if I pursue another course. Yours, Gerard Lim S, Director of Psychology and Counselling, National Council for Children”. – Seychelles
“So happy to have completed this and thanks for everything you guys have done over the past 3 years. Please can you pass my thanks onto Susan. Wonderful tutor and look forward to receiving my qualifications at long last. Kind regards.”
“This course has enabled me to consolidate my knowledge of certain aspects of Horticulture. Which has led to me teaching students at Pershore High School, RHS Introductory Level 1 and Level 1 in Horticulture.
This opportunity has led to exciting opportunities within the Horticulture Industry for both students and myself. Which has involved us working with Peter Seabrook MBE with a display at the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show where we won Silver Gilt, we find ourselves involved in RHS Chelsea again this year but in a different context but also Gardeners World Live at the NEC Birmingham.
This course met and exceeded my expectations and pushed me to learn new terms and knowledge. I just wish I had thought of doing this earlier in my life and not wait till now.
Having feedback from the tutor after each assignment was so useful and helped to calm the nerves when I thought ‘I can’t do this’. It was actually quite exciting waiting for marked work and grade to be sent back to me.
The assignments were marked usually within 48 hours of been sent in, which I was impressed with.
It was also nice to know that if I had any question/queries over the content of the unit, my tutor would respond very quickly to my emails.
Excellent service and always dealt with quickly and with humour, which I loved.
I would just like to thank the tutors and staff of ADL for making what was a new experience for me of adult study an enjoyable experience.”
Thank you for your correspondence and admission to your institution. I am happy to have joined the ADL family and I’m looking forward to reaping beneficial fruits from studying with you. It is the beginning of great things to come for me and those around me. I am going through the documents that you have sent me and have already accessed the course material. It looks super interesting and I cannot wait to begin fully with it.
Thank you for everything. I will contact my tutor and ensure that my journey as a student is a tremendously interesting one. Kind regards”.
I have passed all three RHS theory exams. Thank you for all the education material, and particularly for helping me find an internship in France by helping me with some needed French admin last year (‘Convention de Stage’). The experience you helped me attain was what enabled me to apply for the traineeship I’m currently enjoying at Osborne House via the Historic and Botanic Garden Traineeship Programme. Thank you! This is what I did in France thanks to your help and this is what I’m up to now.
The course helped me with the background knowledge of when to reach for chemicals and was correctly biased towards natural pest elimination. some of the ideas on natural pest control and indeed weed control were great.
Highlight of the course was the manner in which Cara assisted , she was timely and extremely helpful and I would not have made my finish date without her valuable assistance. She is an asset to ADL!
My name is Confideus R. I took a certificate of Hotel Management BTR 202, in 2014. Now I am working in Serengeti TZ, as the Camp Manager (thanks to ADL) . I want to take Diploma course.
You are all welcome to Tanzania Serengeti National Park to sojourn camp. Thanks for ADL. My boss is very proud of my work here.
It has been and always an excellent opportunity to study at ADL. I will always be grateful for your ADL support. I will send the evaluation form soon. Thank you very much.
Many thanks for your support and excellent material, Regards
It was lovely to speak with you. No wonder the students like you – you’re so warm and friendly to talk to. take care and all the best.
I liked the fact that as I progressed through the lessons I felt there were many links, and that I could build on prior knowledge gained.
I received good feedback, and had an efficient turnaround of assignments, useful comments and grades to analyse.
Sir I would like to take this time to thank you and all my tutors for all the help, encouragement and support given to me, while I was studying.
Thank you for these sweet encouraging words. You have no idea how much they mean to me.
Thanks for all the great feedback! You’ve really inspired me to give it 100%
The course was well structured, involved a lot of practise and offered very detailed feedback. My tutor was Ione Lister- her feedback was amazing. I wish I had such tutor in every course I’m doing!
I’ll never forget the service I got from the college. ADL are always co-operative to my problems.
This course was thoroughly enjoyable and informative
I really am impressed with the way the course is run and I look forward to the rest of it.
I liked the way it was presented. I find that all the units are made in a good way and I enjoyed having the course.
I thought the course was outstanding, the lesson packages were informative and the assignments were an excellent method to encourage further research. I have recommended this course to colleges.
I can already express that I am very happy and I predict much more studies with you.
The subjects were explained in an easy and clear way for anyone to understand. The used language was light, even for the people with other mother tongues.
Thank you for your help and I really feel the course has been a good choice for me and i am glad I chose to go through your institution.
I’d like to say I’m very pleased and feel that I made the right choice in choosing ADL. I have found your customer service to be excellent, friendly and professional. The course I have started on is also extremely well written and is very effective at ‘committing’ the lessons to memory.
This is a useful qualification for my future career development.
The course was a valuable learning experience for me because I was able to to learn about the technical aspects of the information technology of. I like the way the course was structured because one can learn a lot at a convenient time as there are no deadlines to submission of assignments. It’s very flexible and convenient.
I am finding [my course] very practical for my present and future both professional and personal environments.
Thank you so much for all your help and support, I could not have done it without you!
Although my main interest in Earth Science is Geology I found this course excellent. The course notes were very interesting and useful throughout the course. Thank you to the ADL staff for their excellent service.
I have learnt a lot during this course and I have met many people who are engineers and gave me clues on how to deal with machines. I am willing to take a Diploma with this Academy in order to continue with my experiences and get a high grade on them.
I do find your comments most useful, nudging me in the right direction on any particular subject. You’ve been of great help and encouragement.
I found putting my course into practice was very satisfying, but it was harder than it was going to be, but this was not a bad thing as I like a challenge.
Thank you is not enough
This course will be a great help in my professional career but it also adds to my general knowledge of trees and enhances my interest in trees.
The course text was very well written, and easy to understand. I was happy to see that my head was not going to be stuck in the books all day, but rather with doing research for assignments.
Thanks forall the great feedback! You have really inspired me to give it 100%
This course exceeded my expectations. It was more comprehensive than I expected. I will recommend this course and ADL to my friends and colleagues.
I want to thank Daryl and Juliette, and others, for all the help and support whilst I’ve been completing the Pre-Med Diploma. I really appreciate the way you all helped me get through all the topics smoothly and get the required number of credit hours at the end. It’s been a brilliant course, and was a good refresher for the knowledge I need to learn for the USMLE.
Thank you so much. It has been such a great course and have learned a lot. It was really great to meet you too and all the staff from the ADL Academy whom I came across in the building.
Thank you so much for all of your support, your help has been invaluable. I am really enjoying the course so glad I decided to sign up. Doing the course has made me feel a lot more confident in my current job and who knows, it might even lead me to a better one.
I am very happy with all at ADL- you guys are great
The course was a valuable learning experience, giving me a good insight into the Nursery Industry and Propagation. The course was clear and concise, and set out the aims of the unit at the start.
Iona Lister was my tutor and gave me excellent, helpful and thoughtful feedback- because of this I really enjoyed my course and would do another with ADL in the future.
Currently I am working on the next subject “Psychology and Counselling”, finding it very practical for my present and future both professional and personal environments.
Just to let you know the course material was indeed waiting for me when I came in tonight – hooray, hooray- and it looks really excellent!! Thank you so much for all your help and for such speedy processing of my application so that I can get started on hols. I greatly appreciated that you took time out of your day to talk to me at length about course possibilities – and the care you take to make sure people choose the right option.
Just a quick email to let you know I passed my Level II Bookkeeping exam with a result of 100%. Very pleased and now covered in certificates. Many thanks again to you, the college and tutors for your help during my course. It was very much appreciated.
I just wanted to let you know that I was very excited to see all my course material arrive in the post today. I am truly impressed by how quickly and efficiently my application was dealt with! I am really pleased to be embarking on something that will enhance my CV and hopefully my job prospects!
I am very enthusiastic about this course, and it feels really nice to be welcomed and feel supported from the very begining.
The course is perfect for me for many reasons: the professionalism of the staff, the knowledge of the staff, the superb communication.
Since the day I started this course, I feel more confident and optimistic for the projects I want to do. If I started all over again, I would definitely choose the same course and the same academy.
I am delighted to report that I passed the exam and received a “Pass with Commendation”. I appreciate very much the detail that you went into, in the correction of my assignments and I found your advice and extra subject information invaluable in advancing my interest and knowledge in horticulture. Go raibh mile maith agat! (a thousand thanks!)
Sir, I would like to take this time to thank you and all my tutors for all the help, encouragement and support given to me, while I was studying the Pre-Medical programme.
Yes – The course, the tuition, and the whole experience exceeded my expectations. I found I was very comfortable being re-educated after 20 years+ of being in the business world. My uni is OK, but nowhere near as good, as professional or as personal as Warnborough. I am seriously thinking to come back and do a Adv. Hon. Dip. as well as continuing the current degree.
Theresa Kahn was the facilitator, and I feel her warmth and passion was expressed in all her communication and commitment to the course.
Thanks for opening this gracious door of learning experience to Zimbabwe. Will tell others, because I already feel that we will be together for a very long time.
I have found this course very challenging, thought provoking and given me a goal to reach in my spare time.
Paul Evans was so helpful throughout the course and with providing useful tips for the exam as well. It made a big difference to the course.
I am pleased to have discovered ADL (recommended to me by one of the zoo keepers who has been working with ADL himself). The level seems to be the right one for me at the moment as I am exploring new ground.
We are just writing to let you know we have received a very positive email from one of your students, Atu Patel. He was very pleased with the quality of his course material and the support he receives from his tutor Paul Evans. It is always great for the ICB to hear of such kind comments from students who are happy with their chosen training provider – keep up the good work! Kind regards.
I just thought I ‘d let you know that I passed all my exams! I got one Commendation out of the four. I am completly shocked as it was far too much to do all four in one day and I found it quite a challenge.
Thank you for your encouragement and support.
I’d like to say how much I’ve enjoyed tutoring for ADL so far. As you may remember, I have tutored for other colleges previously, and the UK accreditation system of NCFE and their equivalent agencies seems to have dumbed down much of distance learning these days. It has become a succession of box-ticking exercises, producing well-oiled robots, rather than people enthusiastic with new skills. ADL seems to stand alone in its values of the enjoyment of learning, and self development instead of the regurgitation of course material. I’m sure your students appreciate this.
I have the invitation,and am really pleased and thrilled to how swift your outfit handles matters concerning students. Indeed am grateful.
Thankyou for your gift card, it was very kind of you.
I look forward to hopefully succeeding with my Pre Med studies with your college, enabling me a chance to study medicine one day.
I am delighted to report that I passed the exam and received a “Pass with Commendation.” I appreciate very much the detail that you went into, in the the correction of my assignments and I found your advice and extra subject information invaluable in advancing my interest and knowledge in horticulture”. Go raibh mile maith agat! (a thousand thanks!)
The certificate has arrived and I feel very proud of it. Can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the course, learnt a huge amount. I have got involved with the British Trust for Ornithology, which is the organisation that does surveys on the bird life in Britain. I now hope to get more involved in their survey work, this is the direction I want to go. Thanks again for all your encouragement.
Upon completing the Interior Plants Course I was offered my dream job. Taking this class was one of the best decisions I’ve made, the information I received was invaluable. Thank you ADL.
I learned lots of new things about plants and how to grow them, and I have gained a lot of confidence to try things out.
You should also know that thanks in part to the courses I have done with you the University of Edinburgh has accepted me to do a Masters in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health thru distance learning, and the University of Oxford have accepted me for a short course in Data Analysis in Ecology. So thanks for the service you provide.
I’m currently studying the module Wildlife Management and I’m so glad I found ADL, since their style of education evolves around PBL (Problem based Learning), which is a learning method that really suits me.
The contents of the module are very interesting and thought-provoking. I just love it! I’m nearly finishing it. My next module would be… Primatology? or…Nature Park Management? They are all so fascinating!
By the way, my tutor is great and very inspiring, always available to answer my queries.
ADL is the answer. Go for it!
Although I had a fair knowledge of Bushcraft before, the course has widened my knowledge and also made me look at things from a professional view in Bushcraft.
I enjoyed doing the assignments very much and learnt a lot from them.
My tutor was Katie Freeth. Everytime I messaged my tutor she always responded back quickly and always answered to help me understand more. I am very pleased with my grades and feedback I got.
Whenever I emailed [email protected] they always emailed back politely and promptly especially when passing on my video and picture emails to my tutor.
I loved doing my course and very much want to take another course with ADL!
Last weekend was a time of surprises:
There was a very nice envelope waiting for me on my return pm Saturday: it was your package full of all the information and course work for my course.
Thank you so much, Amanda for your package: I was both very grateful and very impressed with what I received. I have started with the Students Manual. This I found it to be very compressive and informative. It is something that I will refer back to on many occasions.
The other manual was the complete course work for the Basic Level in Bookkeeping: what a surprise and eye opener! I have had a quick look through and was really impressed with its content, layout and how in-depth the subject is dealt with. I can see how ADL achieve such high exam results.
I am very grateful to you, Amanda, for the speed with which you dealt with my query; truly appreciated with the support received so far. From today I will be focusing on the coursework an hope to do it justice. I am really looking forward to it. Again, many, many thanks for your support.
The course was extremely valuable and I have been able to commence Bereavement Counselling already. I am able to put into practice, the valuable lessons I have learned during the course.
The course was excellent and better than I expected. The structure of the course was excellent.It was very well presented and easy to follow.
I received excellent feedback from my tutor Iona Lister, who returned marked assignments very promptly. This was a very important to me.
I have absolutely nothing but praise for the professional and friendly manner of the administration staff, who were always very helpful when I needed guidance.
The course was very comprehensive. I was very impressed with the course, the website and admin and would dearly love to study with you at some point in the future, when funds allow.
It was better than I expected. Very professional and my tutor was encouraging and excellent – I always received the best feedback on assignments and ways to improve. My tutor also made difficult modules more clearer to me.
Thank you very much and thank you very much for existing! I have 2 degrees, but ADL is one of the best things that has happened in my life.
I want to thank you for the course – Hotel Management- I’ve just finished now. The course was comprehensive and well edited. For sure it can give a new worker in the hospitality industry the basic theoretical and practical knowledge required.
A very productive and useful course which has progressed my field of work.
I enjoyed the course and developed a good understanding of learning and behaviour disorders. I feel this will be helpful in my role as a Clerk at a local primary school”. The course met my expectations and I enjoyed the challenge of learning about conditions i knew little about. The presentation of the course and the opportunity to communicate with my tutor was valuable. I enjoyed the course so much , I am planning to do another!
It exceeded my expectations. It was more comprehensive than I expected and the assignments really stimulated deep study of the subject. Thank you for your guidance. I am delighted with my certificate and will recommend this course and ADL to my friends and colleagues.
The course was a valuable learning experience as it provided me with the knowledge and understanding for me as a Careers Advisor. The feedback was very good from my tutor, and allowed me to build upon my assignments that were marked. The comments were very informative and very useful. Well written course material.
Thank you so much. It has been such a great course and have learned a lot. It was really great to meet you too and all the staff from the ADL academy whom I came across in the building. Everyone is so nice and friendly. wonderful experience. Thank you once again.
I have worked for a few colleges and I find your support both for me as a tutor and students really good – just thought I would pass that on as sometimes it needs to be said.
Thank you so much for your advice and support for my first assignment. It is very encouraging, as I did get a bit confused about the different concepts and terminology. I will build on this for my next assignment. I will focus more in the future in getting the assignments in and not get side-tracked trying to learn latin and everything and worrying that I don’t understand things completely.
I was really worried about doing this course but your advice and comments have really encouraged me.
I undertook this module last summer as I needed to cover the requirement to be accepted into a Biomedical Science Degree course. I managed to complete the coursework and exam for Biochemistry I and III modules in just over two months(200h study time). It was very intense mainly because of my deadline to be accepted into the university course. I guess it could been easier if I didn’t have to complete it within such short amount of time. My tutor was great, I spoke to her from the start and explained I needed to work at a really fast pace. She cooperated and clarified my doubts whenever I needed it. Overall I had a really good experience studying with ADL. When doing distance learning study, you really need to focus and be disciplined, but it is all worth it at the end. I was accepted into my course, I’ve completed my first year and about to start the second one. Thank you ADL and my tutor Juliette Harris for your support.
Its with great pleasure I am announcing you my new job as ‘Park Manager’ for a 5 star hotel in Reunion Island. Its definitely my courses with ADL (Botany, Agronomy and Tree for Rehabilitation) which were decisive for my nomination. Accordingly, my sincere thanks goes to all the ADL team.
In this context, I will appreciate if you could kindly send the certificates for the courses (copy by mails for the time being) I have completed with ADL so that I can present to my new employer.
Thanking you in advance and waiting for the pleasure to hear from you soon. For the meantime I will continue with Biochemistry of Plants
I have been loving the material and my tutor Iona Lister does a wonderful job, the feedback I’ve been getting has been very useful.
Fantastic Teacher. Well organised modules. Assignments force me to learn and research more so I can prepare well for exams. I really enjoyed studying via ADL. I can now continue to study at Ulster University which accept my certificate from ADL
I would like to submit my Horticulture I BHT101 assignment 10 on Landscaping for marking please to my tutor, Sue Stephenson.
This assignment has been a really interesting one for me and has taken me much longer than normal, but, I’ve enjoyed working on it as I’ve never ‘attempted’ to put together a garden design before – very thought-provoking. Thing is, it’s like a painting isn’t it, how do you know when it is finished!
Thank you for your feedback on assignments 6 and 7. I find your comments to be both constructive and motivating.
Thanks Andrew for checking up on me, things are going great, my teacher is awesome and I love the content of the course. My experience so far is outstanding.
Thank you so very much for your lovely email. I am so very grateful and I really appreciate your very kind words reassurance which means so much to me at this moment in time. Thank you so very much also for offering me the opportunity to change my course if I wish to do so. Thank you, I shall look at the courses and will advise you if I should decide to change my course.
I should like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at The Academy. I am so very grateful and overwhelmed by the all the kindness, support, and help I have received from you and all the staff.
My Very Best Wishes to you and all the staff.
Working in an education setting, I learn’t new things which I can use in the workplace. Very engaging course! My tutor, Iona Lister, she was brilliant. Easy to communicate with and always happy to help. Always a quick response to emails.
Thank you very much for that.
I have already got the job, Tier 2 Area Field Manager for Somerset and part Devon for the National Milk Records group, which is the UK largest milk recording company, who also provides services to farms to ensure their cows are as profitable as possible. I will be in charge of about 220 farms and overseeing the services that the company offers these farms. It is a job, I could never have gotten without the course ADL has provided me… so a big thank you for helping me get to where I am now.
A massive thank you in regards to the course I have enjoyed it immensely so far and have been extremely lucky to have had Juliette Harris as my tutor, who has been supportive throughout. One module to go and so looking forward to finally achieving my level 6 diploma.
Thank you very much for this. I enjoyed my course very much and am very pleased with the result. I am keen in upgrading my qualifications and I will be sure to contact you when I am able to. Thank you very much again and I hope to be working with you again in the near future. Best regards.
I would like to say thank you for all your help, it is much appreciated. I have had a look at the culinary herb course, it is a bit scary, but will give me an new challenge, looking forward to starting it. I am not sure if Stephen will be happy to have me as a student again, after having ploughed through marking my assignments on the last course! but I am quite happy to continue having him as my tutor, he was very supportive and gave excellent feedback. Kind regards.
If you’re ever looking for testimonials for ADL I’d be very willing to give one. I’ve found the course and resources very thoroughly put together, and the personal tutor and administrative team incredibly helpful and responsive
Have thoroughly enjoyed this course, the support was excellent and I have learnt so much. Very friendly and helpful.
Thank you so much for your email. I am delighted I did the course with your organisation and what I have learned is unparalleled. It even surpassed my expectations. Not only was I taught about roof and walls, but the fact that I had to write 14 plant reviews after every assignment gave me an opportunity to study plants. It was extra value added. I believe the course was value for money and if I had to do another course online, I would be most delighted to take it at ADL
