    National Open University is the best. Admission is very easy. The first day I was at Noun that I went to make an inquiry on how to be a student, after some few minutes with the student counselor; I went to the bank to pay for the Noun form. When I came back to the study centre at the ICT all my details were filled and to my greatest surprise - I was offered an admission, after reading the letter I could not believe it, I had to ask a lady standing close to me to read the letter again for me and she also shows me hers. Studying at Noun is very Nice affordable and reliable. And today am a graduate of Noun. (Samerah Abdul - Data Management)
