Success Stories‘’Studying online with Academy of York has been a dream come true; it has bridged borders for me. The studying integrated well into my daily life and I enjoyed the time I spent studying because the course material was laid out in a manageable format. The lecturer was quite amazing (his online videos were so detailed as if it’s a face-to-face classroom scenario). The student advisors played a very important role as they were always prompt in resolving any issues I had. The online student forum brought live discussions with all students and it helped to have others to discuss the concepts with. I would not hesitate to recommend online studying with Academy of York to all prospective students who wish to improve their lives.’’Tonderai Runzirai
