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.
The course was well put together, easy to follow and the forum was user-friendly.

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.
I signed up for this course in order to be more professional with my writings skills. I am really amazed by the content as it meets my expectations, honestly at first all online courses were challenging but once I familiarise myself with the concept of distance learning method I realized that there is no difference between online course or the traditional one. In fact, online learning is more effective than the old-fashioned techniques where you don't need to memorize materials instead, you go through challenging assignments where you conduct some research and gather the right information for better writing.My tutor Justine 's feedback set me on the the right path with excellent instructions all throughout my course.
