    Im finding the course interesting but im forever fustrated that it takes a long time for the assignments to be marked and the moodle portal is always playing up, therefore it hinders my study capabilities.

    It was easy to follow,in structure. was easy to understand and comprehend. Loved that there was always someone willing to get back to me straight away whenever I needed help on any subject whether it be on course material or site issues, not that there where any. I fully enjoyed this diploma and would recommend it to others in the future. thankyou to everyone who helped me. I’m very proud of my self and appreciate the guidance from you all.

    I found the comments really useful from tutors in terms of their feedback. I liked the fact that you could do the course in your own time, as I could juggle it around a full time job.

    Only done about 3 or 4 weeks so far but honestly it’s going pretty good and I’m working on the Intro to Psych paper at the moment and it’s really quite interesting.

    The resources available have been useful, and mostly the questions were clear. There were some times where I felt they were a bit ambiguous or confusing, but then again, that could have just been made. Maybe getting more involved with the on-line discussions. It’s hard being a full time worker. And maybe I should have emailed or called the tutors more when I was feeling that I had missed a point.
