  1. Had some queries which were resolved

    I had some queries which were resolved almost immediately. I called SLC initially, and they promised to call back which they did within the hour. I was surprised at how professional and prompt they were in all their dealings with me.

  2. Helpful and prompt

    Found everyone at South London helpful and prompt. I didn’t have to send reminders, it was all taken care of accordingly. The material was also great. I would definitely recommend to my peers.

  3. Well explained

    The explanations provided were structured and organised. I found the course to be interactive and extensive. All modules were covered and discussed thoroughly. Great job SLC!

  4. Great course material

    The course material was good. The course navigation was easy and came with a great deal of flexibility. I enjoyed learning at SLC, and I’m happy to recommend this provider to other learners.

    SLC provides convenience which makes learning smooth and uncomplicated. Unlike studying in a traditional classroom, there is the flexibility of making your own schedule.

  6. Patient and polite

    As someone studying online for the first time, I had so many questions which I needed answers to. The team at SLC was polite and patient with me, and answered every single one. This gave me the confidence to register for this course.
