The College of Media and Publishing. We offer more.

We offer our students more than any other UK distance learning college.

This is why we have 23 pages of positive student reviews and 28 Google 5* reviews

We provide every student with an unrivalled personal service.

They get marked work back within two working days, and often quicker. We usually deal with their queries the same day.

We give them unlimited career support, even after they have completed their course. We help them find jobs, improve their CVs and apply for jobs. There's no cut-off point. 

And we provide guaranteed paid work when they qualify. Many participants recover their course fee - minimum. Some earn hundreds, even thousands of pounds.

Service like this sets us apart. It's why global corporations like Sony and Intel use us.

And it's why people are prepared to put their names to those reviews.

  • Student reviews

    Student testimonials

    My experience of the course was wholly positive and I enjoyed every minute of it. At times I felt as though I was the only student, receiving limitless individual attention! The quality of tutorial support was fantastic.

    Dr Rachel Finnegan: proofreading and editing course

    After the disappointment of doing a proofreading course through another distance learning provider I was about ready to give up with learning proofreading. But I learnt more in the first assignment than anything I had learnt on my previous course.

    Tiffany Shand: proofreading and editing course

    The course was excellent, and exceeded my expectations. I am now brimming with ideas for my blog. CMP really do make you feel like you’re the only student they have. I enjoyed the course so much I’ve signed up for two more courses!

    Beverley Duddridge: fashion blogging course

    The course went beyond my expectations as it covered many different types of copywriting and also included a bit about web writing and PR. Cleland Thom was the best tutor I’ve ever had through distance learning.

    Tiffany Shand: copywriting course

    Within three months of beginning the course I secured a job as a journalist for a local newspaper. The course met my expectations in every way. This is my second distance learning course - an Open University course, did not live up to my expectations.
