A good all-round course with lots of valuable learning points
4 5
by Matthew - December 2018

I really enjoyed the flexibility of this course - having started it in January 2017 and just finished in December 2018, it's great not to have imposed deadlines (although some users may prefer a more rigorous approach). The contents are interesting and great preparation for future career plans. The tutorial support good - and prompt. Any clarification was usually dealt with in a timely manner.

Great course and good value
5 5
by Rory - December 2018

If you're thinking of entering Copwriting or are seeking to build on your existing skills this is a good course that covers just about every form of copywriting I can think of. The assignments get more and more challenging (the writing for web, social media and blogs assignment is a monster!) but ultimately that's what you want in an online course - to be stretched. The website online learning area is easy to navigate and your tutor is helpful and quick to mark your assignments. I've only just completed the course and am now considering doing the editing and proofreading one too.
