What our past students said


“To the world, it’s always a bonus point when they find out that you are busy with studies. They will respect you and will treat you differently. I’m feeling confident and equipped with much more experience. Most of the people believe that it is a difficult thing to study, which it might be, but with Academy of York, the assistance and the fact that the fanatical support team of A.O.Y actually ” bend over backward ” is a great thing. Always friendly and respond immediately with your necessary needs. It was a pleasure to study at A.O.Y.”

Henry Klaasen


“The assignments were very helpful, it helped me focus on my work knowing exactly what to do because whenever I come across challenges I will go back and refer to my study guide.”
