From a very young age, I knew that computers were definitely my thing. As much as I had gained knowledge in that area over time, I knew that it was important to pursue further studies.

I had just finished community college and started working when I came across an ad in the local newspaper for RDI. I was surprised and excited to learn that the programmes offered by RDI were accredited and beyond affordable.

Before I knew it, I was enrolled in a Computing and Design programme. What’s great is that RDI not only provides accredited and affordable programmes; students are also provided with course material, the guidance of tutors and readily available student support.

One of my favourite things about studying with RDI is the flexibility. I don’t have to get out of bed and go to class if I don’t want to; I study when it’s convenient for me. What’s not to love about that? Plus, I don’t have to give up my job, which is amazing, because I get to apply what I learn while I study.

Distance learning is definitely the way to go and RDI does it best. I would recommend RDI to anyone without hesitation.

FAQ's

  • What if I find the course too hard?

    We won’t enrol you on a course unless we’re confident it’s right for you. UK university courses are designed to challenge you, but if you feel you’ve started at the wrong level, let us know and we’ll discuss your options.

  • Will I be able to succeed?

    Many thousands of people have before you. Studying for a university qualification part-time is a big commitment, but with the teaching and support we give you, there’s no reason why you can’t succeed.

  • Will there be anyone else like me on the course?

    Definitely. More than 7,000 students are enrolled through RDI from over 150 countries worldwide. 76% of students doing a UK university qualification through RDI are adult learners. We’ve got students from many different backgrounds, but they all share the same goal of getting a UK university qualification and changing their life and the world for the better.
