A distance learning course studentI enrolled on this course because I enjoy proofreading, and I have an eye for detail. I wanted to gain a certification in proofreading and editing to further my career opportunities, and potentially enter the freelance market. I chose this course because it is accredited, government approved, leads to a certification, and the reviews I read were all extremely positive.

The course exceeded my expectations. The tutorial support from Dr Rachel Finnegan was excellent. She responded to messages very promptly and was always really friendly and supportive. My assignments were marked swiftly, and Rachel’s feedback was always really constructive, with helpful advice.

The course content was much larger than I expected, very thorough, with some suitably challenging assignments. The lesson on legal checks was very welcomed indeed, and the final lesson, finding work, is really helpful; thank you!

I have learnt the basics of proofreading and copy editing skills; I look forward to putting those skills into practice, both on paper and on-screen. I have also learnt how to further improve my English language skills, and the importance of checking for accuracy and facts; assume everything is wrong until proved otherwise! The course has strengthened my aspiration to pursue a career in proofreading and copy editing.

I don’t think the course requires any improvements; I’ve been really impressed with all aspects of it.
