How do the online writing courses work?

Our online writing courses do not run in real time and you do not have to be online at a set time or day. Your tutor will email you a new module (text lesson) and assignment once a week. You will have one week to complete the weekly assignment. Your tutor will provide written feedback on all assignments.

Our online writing courses are flexible and you can participate at any time, from anywhere in the world.

Do I need to be good with computers to participate in the course?

Our courses are user-friendly. You just need internet access. The tutor will email you a new module and assignment every week. You just need to read that email, read the module, write the assignment and email the assignment for feedback.
