What our past students said


“I have gained a lot of knowledge and improvement throughout my journey at A.O.Y. The fanatical student support team have made it easy for me to understand. They were patient with me regardless of how many times I’d asked questions. They are well trained to interact with students.

Finky Mashaba


“I chose to study at A.O.Y because I needed a course that could accommodate my schedule. A.O.Y has been the best college for that. They are extremely student-centered. Between the consistent check-ups, the helpful interactions with the fanatical support team and even the convienient payment method, everything that I experienced was beyond excellent!”
