Justine was a wonderful tutor. She always replied swiftly, and was patient if I didn't understand. It has been a pleasure to be tutored by her.

I had previously done a similar correspondence course with Chapterhouse and I found this one to be far superior on many fronts.

It exceeded my expectations. Excellent tutorial support. The course content covered everything required from start to finish. I particularly appreciated the sales, marketing and promotional ideas in the final lessons.

The tutorial support was excellent - the feedback was clear and helpful.

There were some great tips about writing better copy. It's made me keen to keep writing my blog, now I have a better understanding of how I should write for that in particular - and it's given me a better understanding of how to write for different channels at work.

The course was very well structured, I was able to complete lessons and assignments in my own time, and there was plenty of support. It has exceeded my expectations, right from the very first interactions.

The content was very well structured and easy to follow. The links to articles and other sites were especially useful. The course has taught me everything I could possibly need to know about proofreading and editing.

The lessons were interesting and informative. The assignments were challenging and rewarding.

The tutorial support was excellent. Julian Brouwer always replied in a timely manner and was extremely helpful and encouraging.

I learned where I am currently going wrong, how I can improve my approach and communicate more effectively.

It taught me a great deal about grammar, style and referencing that I didn't know. It was good that you were always able to get a speedy and accurate reply to your queries.

The content explained all the aspects clearly and succinctly. There is an awful lot more to proofreading than spelling and grammar.

There was good depth, particularly towards the end of the course. Our tutor was clear with his feedback and offered valuable insight. A tough marker, he encouraged me to work harder to produce better work, which is a real compliment. The tutorial support was excellent. Quick to respond, clear and in-depth feedback.

The course met and exceeded my expectations. I thought the assignments were great and I feel like my copywriting skills have improved massively since beginning the course.

I thought the course content was in-depth and covered the necessary areas of copywriting. I found the SEO and social media assignments particularly useful as this is an area I am currently venturing in to in my job.

Highly professional tutorship. Learning material is very good, clear and easy to understand. If you do not study, you do not pass. This means that online learning is not "free". The support is rapid and efficient

In my case, the tutorial support was the best I could ever have. Professional, highly qualified, available and communicative.

I would say the course exceeded my expectations

Tutorial support: Excellent. Valuable comments and advice. Fast response. I learned to be thorough. Learned to assess strengths and weaknesses.
