I thought to occupy myself whilst waiting for this relocation to happen I might as well do my top-up degree. So decided on online or correspondence studying. ICS offers one I have to do 3 modules. Then I also tried this one.

CAMPILE UNIVERSITY. Anyone heard of them? They sound too good to be true. Filled their form online then they started calling me like crazy last week everyday about 3 people /day.

Anyway decided to go with ICS for GB 1049pounds 3 module.

This CAMPILE were calling me for payment so I said but what will I pay for coz I never got any infor on what modules and how much... They said the Panel/Committee sat and reviewed my experience and my qualifications since graduation and I qualify for Bachelor of Nursing Degree I just have to pay GB549pounds and they send it in the post within 7days. So I thought let me check this BODY that they displayed on their site as Acrreditation Body

ABHEI( accreditation Body for Higher Education Institutions). They have contact emails and no telephone number. I emailed and they were bouncing back all 3 of them. I thought dubious.

So when I called them they were pressing me to pay there and then. So I said I have no credit card or debit card but will send them a cheque if they give me the address. So 20 minutes later I got the detalis.This is to inform you that you have qualified for the Bachelors Degree in Nursing that you applied for at Campile University.

No way in hell. Get an education from someone whose credentials you can actually check.

If you are still wondering, ask them for names from their graduating classes, if their credits are transferrable, and if they are, call the educational institutions they mention and ask if they are actually accepting their credits.

Thanks for the replies. I was so suspicious especially when they were calling me so much to pay. I won't waste my money for sure coz they sound too good to be true.

I got the same address. I was told this was for Rochville University. I asked them about a bachelor's degree in business administration. Is this legit?
