    First impressions were great

    South London College impressed me almost immediately. Their first point of contact engaged me in a long conversation that led to the decision of registering for this course. Since, I have nothing but positive things to say about them. Keep it up!

  3. Greyson Khan October 15, 2019

    Up to standard

    This diploma which I completed a few months ago was up to the mark, and this is coming from someone who has relative experience in pathogen studies. It was a helpful course that enhanced my understanding of the subject.

    Beginner learned the ropes quickly

    As a beginner to online learning, I must say that SLC taught me the ropes quickly so that I could get a move on to the learning part of the process. I’ve never learned online before, so this was an exciting experience for me.

  5. Jan Stone August 13, 2019

    Great support staff

    I had a good rapport with the support staff from day one. They were helpful and going out of their way to cater to my requirements. The team was efficient and quick in everything they did.

  6. Danny Robertson July 18, 2019

    Would use SLC again

    As mentioned, I highly recommend SLC as a reliable online provider. I myself just completed this Diploma and plan to use their learning platform again. It was a good experience overall.

    Very professional

    The team at South London was nothing short of professional. From the get go I was welcomed warmly to the fold, and until I completed the course they made certain everything was in order.
