    The course exceeded my expectations, it is an amazing course and I learned so much. My tutor Jennie was amazing, she was so helpful and if I ever needed advice or help with an assignment she did her very best to help me. She was a lovely, friendly lady.

    The tutorial support was excellent, very timely, full of detailed help and advice, with excellent feedback and pointers, as well as fast grading. Even the tests were fun.

    Emer Garry: proofreading and editing course

    The course refreshed and developed my knowledge of things I'd enjoyed in my younger days as a student. The tutor was very helpful, very fair in their assessments of my work, and very punctual with returning marked assignments.
