5 5
by Emily - July 2018

Completing this course has been something I've been wanting to do for a long time. It's filled with so much information about the areas surrounding the topic and how to apply it to your own work. I had such a lovely tutor, Justine, who promptly marked my assignments with great feedback. Thanks so much CMP for a great course!
