Student Profile(s)

Frederic Belinga

Studying with OBS has been a stellar and rewarding experience enhanced by the school omnipresent student assistance ( Thank you Miss Laura et al.) as well as a consistent support from a truly empathetic and responsive staff who have advised, directed & guided me every step of the way, even in my graduation stage ( Thank you Mr Yusuf). You can trust these professionals to be there for you, or to at least give their best to help you. Moreover, I really took advantage of the freedom to work and study at my own convenience, which helped me dive into chapters I didn’t quite understand at first hand. Studying at my own pace free of any pressure and stress has truly facilitated my studying experience and has helped develop as an independent and confident thinker. Overall the experience was immersive, the studying platform was easily accessible via an app or from my laptop, thus it was practical, easy to use with solid features enabling me to navigate effectively through the course materials.

I chose OBS for its flexibility of learning as I’m working full time and it is difficult for me to attend any lectures . Online Business School has given me the flexibility to complete module and assignments online. My learning experience was very enjoyable and I had great support from the supervisor and admin team. The learning , content of the course, support both from supervisor and admin team. Most importantly, they are prompt and worked on time in every task. Always keep focus and explore novel option. The next step will be to upgrade my Level 7 Strategic Management (Masters equivalent) qualification to MBA level

After researching various providers of online diploma’s, the Online Business School provided the flexibility, relevant course content which would benefit my job role and the value for money. OBS were very enjoyable with expert help from the course tutors and admin staff, support and communications were fast and effective. Course content was perfect and demanding in a good way and helped me in my job role. The flexibility of learning was one of the main things I liked about the Online Business School. The learning platform was also very easy to use and intuitive. If you are currently studying, keep up the hard work, the benefits of knowledge and confidence will be worth it at the end. If your thinking about studying with the Online Business School, you won’t be disappointed with the journey and you will be very proud with what you have achieved at the end of it. I plan to top up my Diploma to an MBA, I will be using one of the recommended Universities by the Online Business School hoping this will give me some continuity in learning. I am looking forward to this next step.

The reason why I chose to study with OBS because of its rating and flexible option to study in your own time with other work commitments. My experience with OBS is good but at times hard as well when you have to put lots of efforts to do your assignment up to the standard because the marking criteria is very strict by the assessors. My advice to potential students is if you are thinking to do course from OBS then do keep in your mind that it will be not very easy journey and you have to thoroughly study to gain your certificate because of the high standard set by the assessors and awarding body. My future plans are to set my own business and use my strategic knowledge that is gained through this course in order to achieve best results.

There are many advantageous reasons to choose Online Business School, such as more subject offerings, flexible scheduling and independent learning opportunities, University top up program and very good accreditation as well. My experience was great really wonderful and thanks OBS.OBS staff were helpful. Especially Laura I really appreciate the way she try to help every student. Additionally, OBS has great tutor support like Mr. Alan; his feedback sometimes made me angry, because he would analyse every detail of the assignment, however, later I realised that everything was in my advantage as he was just pushing me to study harder. I really appreciate this! My advice to OBS students is to always remember that study is your work. Consciously choose to show up, absorb wonderful content available to you, schedule in assessments, lectures, tasks, and really set and keep those boundaries. Have a successful mindset. Implement firm boundaries. Keep a schedule like you depend on it. My plan now is to top-up my MBA at a UK university. Learning always makes a difference.
