What our past students said
“I can only say positive things about A.O.Y. The post office returned my study material, no problem to A.O.Y who promptly dispatched a new batch of material. When I dealt with A.O.Y telephonically, I was dealt with in a very friendly and professional manner, they did not at any time make me feel like: “oh no not another one with questions”. The payment structure suited me and payments always reflected on all statements. Even though I have finished the course and am not currently studying, I still receive updates which makes you feel as if A.O.Y has my best interests at heart. THANK YOU A.O.Y!!!!!”
“It was very good learned a lot. Thank you, Academy of York.”
