“I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I had not studied for the past ten years and was a little apprehensive.

The staff were very supportive, their feedback was always valuable and response time was extremely prompt.

This course has given me a new desire to keep learning. I never knew learning could be so enjoyable. I am looking forward to my next learning experience through Simply Learning.”


“Absolutely, the course was a valuable learning experience! Gave me confidence and knowledge to start my own small business and help others with health and weight loss.

My tutor was brilliant! She replied to questions promptly and my assignments were always returned quickly with useful critique. She was extremely helpful and supportive and I cannot thank her enough!

I am very impressed with the school from start to finish! I have attended other tertiary institutions before and attended university and have never had such a smooth and positive experience as the one with Simply Learning.”
