    Student testimonials

    The course not only helped me to enhance the quality of my writing but also, with tutor Paul Clark’s sage advice, to understand each of the fundamental aspects of principles of blogging. To my mind, it was very comprehensive.

    Stuart Campbell: sports blogging course

    The course was great; it made me think of every aspect of social media marketing. Andy Carter was very supportive; his feedback made me think more deeply about my assignment responses. The content was clear; the learning material was easy to understand.

    Amanda Bate: social media marketing course

    Happily, I managed to secure regular work as a proofreader during the course, and this valuable real-world experience helped my progression in the course and gave me confidence for the future. It also meant the course more than paid for itself

    Tom Pritchard: proofreading and editing course

    I have been told I was good at proofreading and I wanted to reach a recognised standard. The course content was good. It is excellent that it is reviewed often in order to reflect realistic standards.

    Gweno Hugh-Jones: proofreading and editing course

    The course went a lot deeper into the nature and workings of media law than I thought it would. The tutorial support was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I learnt all I need to know about any potential legal difficulties when writing news

    Matt McAdam: media law basics course
