Helani Maluleke

“I enjoyed studying online, after studying a teachers diploma in 1994 and doing a certificate in SDF in 2016. I have referred my daughter to study through you, she is currently doing 1 module in HR. I wouldn’t have made it if I didn’t get the help from a kind person, Michelle Germishuys. She made my studies very easy. Keep up the good work Michelle. When I struggled to understand certain questions you had a way of explaining them to me. When I panicked about time, you were there to assure me that I will make it in time to submit the FISA.”

Phindile Nkambule

“I had passion of working with people helping them to find solutions in their problems. But without skills you cannot do well that’s when I registered with you to gain knowledge about life. As a life coach you don’t need to stop studying. You need to have knowledge in all areas of life because we deal with different people.”

Mbekezelwa Jackson Mzindle

“I really enjoyed studying with AOY. The student advisor was always there for me, whenever I call for assistance, she will go extra mile and I will definitely register for another course. Studying especially at my age with lots of family responsibilities can be very strenuous and stressful sometimes, but Academy Of York offered me an opportunity and didn’t hesitate to grab it and I am now encouraged hence I’ve registered for my Bachelor Degree and I am currently studying and I have no doubts that I will make it through.”

The course itself challenged me and the depth of the content was of high standard. All that I learnt I am now applying it to my day to day work. The course itself has added not only knowledge but value to my work.”

Mswati Abram Tshabalala

“I had passion of working with people helping them to find solutions in their problems. But without skills you cannot do well that’s when I registered with you to gain knowledge about life. As a life coach you don’t need to stop studying. You need to have knowledge in all areas of life because we deal with different people.”

Zanele Sseninde

“My story goes like this: At first, i was sceptical of doing a course online. I am an old school (a behind the desk student and a lecturer in front of me) kind of a person. Doing a course online was a giant leap from my side. I registered anyway, continued with my studies, contacted my lecturer for clarity. It hasn’t been easy at all because I work all day. When I’m home it’s homework time for my child, and I’m a single mother, I have to assist. So, by God’s grace, I managed to research for information, submitted my assignments even if it was last minute at times. It has been a rough and challenging ride, but I guess when one has purpose in their life and they want a qualification so bad, miracles happen. Honestly speaking, having passed my course, it’s a miracle from God. I would like to encourage those who want to do this course, to go for it. I have learned a lot. Today, I am a better Employee Wellness Practitioner with a qualification from Academy of York.”

Philile Percy Biyela

“I would like to thank Sally Havire for her assistance on my modules
especially FNST it was the hardest subject but she made things to be much
more easier for me I passed with 84% thank you so so much sis Sally I really appreciate your help.”

Hosia Phiri

“I started the Health and Safety Practitioner course in 2017, few months after that I lost my father. After losing my father I received a promotion from my former employer, that transition was frustrating. I couldn’t cope with my studies and the work load. I would like to say thank you to my student liaison officer Mr Benjamin Makholo. He was so patient with me, he gave me all the necessary assistance and encouraged me. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t think I could’ve pushed hard beyond boundaries to finish the course and pass. To the Academy of York, keep up the brilliant work, your customer service is awesome. If I had known about the Academy of York during my varsity days I could have been far by now, but it is never too late hence I took a step to enrol and upgrade myself.”

Jo-Mari Ungerer

“Fast, easy and great service. Got my certificate today. The best place to do accredited long distance learning. I will be sure to return for another course shortly. Thank you Michelle and AOY team for the support and helping people further their education.”

Ndwamato Redani Moses

“The presentation of the course was done in a very professional way and the time schedule was worked out to perfection and allowed enough time to ask questions. All questions and concerns that arose during the course were handled professionally and answered in a way that was understandable. The course coordinator Mr Benjamin was really very patient and helpful. The course material covered all facets of Health and Safety that will assist me to perform my duties as our company’s Safety Officer. I really enjoyed the course and course coordinator was excellent and knew his subject by heart. I will recommend Academy of York at any time.”

Ndwamato Redani Moses

Hlanganani Khosa

“I had the most amazing time while doing my Advance Project Management course, in the beginning it was difficult to adjust since I work full time knock at five sometimes late. However, with the help of my coordinator Michelle I was challenged to think out of the box. She was so supportive sometimes I would pass with average marks, she will return my script demanding that I can do more/ better. I am now running my projects with confidence and hope to move into a new job.

Thank You, Thank You Michelle for your patience and support keep up with the excellent service. You made my study easy as if I was attending daily classes, I enjoyed my studies with the institution hope to come back for more soon. Thank you”

Nicchi Pillay | HR Diploma Online

“I thought that attempting to get a qualification, at age fifty, meant that I was completely insane or a daredevil, but Academy of York’s online studies has made my studying experience a walk in the park. I can work in my own time, at my own pace and from wherever I am. No regrets. Thank you AOY”

Nicchi Pillay | HR Diploma Online

Candice Thompson

“Online has been a different experience to the traditional correspondence I am used to. It is a much faster paced environment but the AOY online portal is user friendly, easy to navigate and super-efficient. Also the assignment submissions are very basic to submit. It saves a lot of time and money by enabling us to directly upload to the portal instead of going and posting etc. All in all, I think, online is definitely the way of learning in the future”

Candice Thompson

Cathy Oberholzer

“After studying for my Life Coaching certificate with AOY I find I use what I learnt on a daily basis, at work, at home and during social interactions. I’d like to thank the Principal and his amazing staff at AOY for their support, guidance and the professional way in which they treat their students. A special thanks to my student advisor who was wonderful and really put me at ease. Should I decide to take up another course I’ll definitely do it through Academy of York! Thank you all for the great experience and good luck into the future.”

J.J. Bronkhorst

“I am a 52 year old male and have done the walk in life already. I thought I’ve seen it all and cannot be taught anything more till I enrolled with Academy of York. I was guided by professionals such as Mike and Vuyelwa, who I thank from the bottom of my heart. The Facilities/Operations Manager qualification I obtained will surely add to my qualifications and also made me realise one is never too old to study. So to all the young fellow students out there………good luck and remember”knowledge is power!”

J.J. Bronkhorst

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you for offering a great site and more importantly, investing in great people like Mike. He was kind enough to send a message about courses, available items and explaining the how’s, what and when. He answered all of my questions promptly, about my Course details and what my options were; since Without any hesitation, Mike was very efficient and quick updated me on all AOY have to offer me. In this day and age it’s difficult to find people who genuinely care about real customer service. It is pleasantly apparent to me, that you have someone who does, in Mike!.”
