I did the course over 18 months while holding down a full-time job abroad, first in Portugal, and then in Poland.

Enrolling was easily one of the best decisions of my life. The result of it is that I am working as a subeditor on a magazine.

This course not only brushed up some of my journalistic skills that had become rusty, so it did a great job of refreshing the skills I already had.

The flexibility of studying with CMP is what makes studying with them so great. I responses to my questions within hours of asking them, and sometimes within minutes, and always got marked work back quickly.

I found my tutor’s feedback constructive and insightful, particularly on the law side of the course.

In addition, I was given assistance with rewriting my CV, and looking for jobs and work experience placements.

Enrolling on the course was easily one of the best decisions of my life, and the result of it is that I have got back in to journalism and I am working as a subeditor on a magazine, Travel Trade Gazette, that I love.

I have already been sent on a week-long assignment to Hong Kong. There are not many jobs in the world where you get perks like that.

Distance learning can be hard at times, but with a bit of perseverance and support from CMP, it is easy to reap the benefits that it can bring.
