And Our Students Says

So far, what I have experienced in Athena Global Education is impressive, especially regarding people to assist me with my academic challenges. I have been experiencing health anxiety and this Covid-19 era made it really worse. It was impossible for me to even concentrate on my studies. I almost wanted to quit and get rid of my anxiety but seeing the patience and willingness of student engagement officers and course leaders to guide me through my assignments gave me so much relief that I was able to go through my therapy counseling and learn at the same time. This is the first time in my life that I have experienced such a level of patience from a higher education institute. So all I can say now is thank you everyone for your desire to make sure I pass my assignments with flying colors. I am certainly overwhelmed.

If you fail on your resubmission, then you may have to pay the dissertation fee again and you will need to start over on a new project.
