  • Good course, good tutor, but not really challenging for me.

    By on 17 September 2016
    Personally I found this course rather easy and would have liked it to be more challenging. Also wish more theories were included. However I can see how this would be the perfect course for anybody with a busy schedule and who has no prior knowledge regarding forensic psychology; this course gives a good starting point to get into the field. The course gives the student a basis understanding of a variety of areas within forensic psychology.

    I have to say the primary highlight of my course was the excellent feed back given by my tutor, Adam Ellis, who always provided me with such things as further points to look into at more depth to expand my learning.
    As a whole though I have enjoyed my learning experience and will enroll in another course soon.
    Dear Amy Holder
    Thank you for your positive review regarding your learning experience with NCC.

    We look forward to welcoming you back as a return learning (with a discount for your loyalty).

  • Would highly recommend NCC Home Learning

    By on 17 May 2016
    Even though I worked full time I managed to complete the modules on time .. I found it challenging at times but my interest and motivation for learning kept me inspired and I pushed myself to fully focus and indeed I reaped the rewards with a one hundred per cent feed back on every module .. the instructions and content were very easy to understand and there was always a tutor on hand if needed .. I would highly recommend NCC Home Learning .. so much so that I'm enrolling in another course in September and I will enjoy the next just as much.
    Dear Karen Spencer
    "Many thanks for your kind words along with your 5 star review of NCC Home Learning.
