A1“Growing up, I had always attended classroom-based learning and UCLan’s online learning was a new experience for me. I am impressed by the quality of education that I received. Despite being hearing impaired, I was able to secure a first class degree and I have to thank NCC Education, UCLan and Softwarica for that. My tutors were knowledgeable, approachable and accessible. I am also very satisfied with all the transcribed documents of video lectures and I  actually enjoyed studying them.”
