What our past students said


“Well! Studying in the comfort of my couch is interesting. It also helped me to realise that I have potential to conquer, thrive and fly higher than an eagle. Though, when I started I thought it was going to kill me but I had to believe in myself first and enjoy what I’m doing for my future – then I started to have energy and confidence. I realised that believing in yourself can get you places.”

“I enjoyed studying with A.O.Y, in that my level of education/understanding in the course I registered was improved immensely. I am in the process of approaching different companies to present my proposal on performance management because I know it is one of the challenging aspects in most companies and I am confident that they are going to love the angle at which A.O.Y has approached this subject.”
