The course was superb in every way. Do not enrol with any other course provider. Julian Brouwer was fantastic. He supported me in every way, and answered all my questions - instantly. I didn't just learn what I needed to know, the course was a great adventure in itself.
WOW! This proofreading course has opened my eyes to a whole new way of looking at literature. I am looking forward to applying my new skills to my job and looking for new opportunities. Thank you CMP.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Copywriting course at the College of Media and Publishing. The course assignments were informative and creative, and covered a wide range of topics, from advertising to blogs and social media. The tutor, Justine, was excellent- very helpful and quick and fair with her marking. I learned a great deal doing this course, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their writing skills.
I was increasingly being asked if I provide copywriting services and wanted an independent view on my ability. I received some great constructive criticism and learned that copywriting is more than just being able to write well. It also gave me the confidence to go ahead and accept assignments while continuing to hone my skills. The administration was very, very efficient and the communication was excellent, even when we had an email blip. The tutorial support was excellent: constructive comments and always willing to answer questions. Initially, I thought the content might be a bit basic but it soon got much more challenging and I learned a lot. Apart from copywriting skills, I also learned a few tips on how to market my own business just from communicating with CMP and following the company on social media.
