Why Choose Our UX writing Course?
Why Choose Us?
|Accredited by ABC as equivalent to Level 4 of the National Qualification Framework (NQF).||Some courses are not properly accredited. Others offer a Level 2 or 3.|
|Unlimited time to complete your course – because sometimes life gets in the way.||Many organisations require you to complete the course in a year.|
|60-day refund period. Take your time to reflect on whether you're happy with the course.||Some organisations only give you 7 days to return your course if you're not happy with it.|
|Additional end-of-course refund. If you don’t earn at least the cost of the course within 90 days of completing it, after doing some marketing, we’ll refund your course fees. Conditions apply||As far as we know, no one else offers this.|
|1:1 tutor support. All our tutors are practising UX writers, so you get real-world answers.||Some organisations get in-house people to mark the assignment using simple tick-boxes. So you never discover the deep-down insiders' information.|
|Printed materials delivered to your door. We provide both printed and multi-media materials. Plus you have full access to an online edition. It’s easier to study that way.||Some courses are online-only. That's OK if you are happy to study online. But two-thirds of our learners prefer printed course materials.|
|Easy to grasp. We provide a carefully graduated learning experience.||Some companies make their first assignment hard, so many students give up straightaway.|
|Interesting course material. Our course is fun to do.||Others provide a dry, academic course that is boring to read and time consuming. It’s harder to do a course if the material is dull.|
|All inclusive package. There are no hidden fees. You don't need any extras (though we include an optional reading list). And delivery by courier is included in the price of our printed + online edition.||Check that other organisations won't charge you extra for tutoring or other costs.|
|Includes detailed information on how to set up and run a copywriting business.||Many organisations don't think about including this very important information.|
|You can contact other learners, so you can learn from them and share experiences.||Some organisations have no system for letting you make contact, so you're isolated.|
|You get a free business mentor for 90 days after completing the course. Your mentor will help you to set up your business, if that is your aim.||As far as we know, no one else offer this.|
|You receive regular Progress Reports and reminders, tailored to your individual progress. They will help you stay on track.
||You're unlikely to get this from other organisations.|
|A portfolio. At the end of the course you'll have a wide range of content for your portfolio. It includes web copy, a press release, a radio commercial and a leaflet.||Other courses don't result in a portfolio.|
|Guaranteed pass. You can re-submit any assignment you fail until you get a pass mark. This guarantees you'll end up with a Diploma qualification. We will keep training you until you pass.
||Other colleges don't provide this guarantee.|
And finally, you get all the advantages of home study: no classroom attendance, learn from home, study at your own pace, and no previous knowledge required.
What our students say
"Thanks for the Progress Report. This is SO motivating! I will do my best to send my next assignment to my tutor by 29 Nov. I explained to her that I have several commitments in the coming weeks but I’m now determined to complete the course within 7 months! I don’t want to be considered an 'average learner'!
Great to hear from you so regularly. I’m very impressed with the course so far."
