” This correspondence learning did help me a lot, as most of the time was struggling in a classroom. So, to do correspondence I did not have a pressure of class teacher. I was doing it at my own pace and I managed to get my diploma. I was so excited when I find out that I have completed my studies. I will definitely recommend Academy of York to my family and friends. Thank you.”
