Tia wanted to study sociology, but struggled in school. With our online A Level Sociology course, she got the attention she needed to complete a two-year qualification in one year.
I chose to study A Level Sociology because I was interested in understanding how human thoughts and actions are shaped by and influenced by surrounding cultural and social structures.
The other A Levels I studied were Economics and English Literature. Studying all three was hard as there wasn't any overlap but I thoroughly enjoyed all three.
I struggled in the mainstream schooling system as I often found myself ignored by teachers with class sizes being so big.
With ICS Learn I didn't have the same issues as I felt as if I could get all the attention that I needed to help me meet my goals.
ICS Learn also appealed to me because it enabled me to work from different environments provided I had Wi-Fi access which meant I could study a lot more at my own convenience.
I did initially have some reservations about studying with ICS Learn as I had wanted to take a 2-year course within a year, however, ICS Learn was perfect as I was able to accelerate my learning knowing I had constant support.
I also knew that if I struggled to get my qualification within the year, I had the option to extend my learning across the 2 years.
I found that the course structure was easy to follow, and all the resources were detailed enough.
At the start of my course, I was given a recommended list of textbooks and other resources to complement my studies.
I found this multi-channel approach amazing as it meant I had more than enough material for revision and consolidating my learning.
I also liked how the online platform would reference to different pages in the textbook.
My tutor Jane was amazing and extremely supportive throughout the whole course. She responded promptly to any queries I had and provided in-depth feedback on all my assignments.
Now I have obtained the grades I needed, I will go on to complete an apprenticeship in London. Without ICS Learn this wouldn't have been possible!
I would recommend ICS Learn to anyone who is interested in online learning. I have had an amazing experience and wish I knew about it sooner!
