What our past students said


“My study experience with A.O.Y was amazing, I learnt so much and I feel empowered as a coloured woman. I encourage everyone to study through A.O.Y because they really support you through your course. I am beyond happy and no amount of words can express my gratitude.”

“I was fresh from school and could not afford to go to varsity in 2008, I was busy applying for jobs and I saw Academy of York in the paper. I contacted them and I received a package. In that same week, I got my first job and I was so excited as I could pay for my studies and work at the same time. I always received the correct assistance from Academy of York and I would recommend everyone to study there.”
