It’s signup week at Oakgrove University until the twentyfifth of this month. Here is what some of the 800 students who started studying with us last year hav e to say.

I did my undergraduate degree and Masters with Oakgrove, so I knew their courses were topnotch. It’s a modular course, which is great as I wasn’t sure how much time I’d hav e available f or study. Voice 3 Being a young mother meant I had little choice but to leav e school early. Oakgrove’s f oundation courses gav e me the chance to get on a degree course without going through the traditional qualifications system. Now, I’m in my first year of a f ulltime law degree.
