  • Student reviews

    Student testimonials

    The course was excellent overall and there was a lot of learning material which was really useful and will continue to be in future too when I take up a job. I can always refer to the learning material whenever needed.

    Shwetha Krishna: proofreading and editing course

    The course was better than expected, with real life assignments to complete. Very helpful feedback that was both constructive and informative. I enjoyed the course so much.

    Jim Matthews: freelance photojournalism course

    The course was informative, easy to follow, and structured well. I learned a lot not only about writing but also about SEO. The tutorial support was second to none.

    Clare Robertson: SEO Article Writing

    The course fully met my expectations. The support was great. Honest, helpful and timely. I learnt how to better plan social media activity and not to over complicate content. Less is more!

    Jess Milton: social media marketing foundation

    I thought the course content was varied and interesting. Each lesson focuses on a different area of proofreading and editing. I was impressed with the tutorial support as I always had a quick response to any queries.
