The positive aspects are the small class sizes, allowing us to talk through assignments in detail, and allow us to be very hands-on with our teacher/other classmates. The negative aspects are the very long hours of the course, from 9am til 5pm.
My advice to future students is: Pay attention to what your teachers tell you, and don't be late to classes! Every little bit of information is very important.
Positives: lots of friendly students, teachers and staff
Negatives: they cut our printing budget :(
My advice to future students is: Don’t leave your homework to the last minute
Positive: I have learnt more from this course than any other I’ve done. My skills as an editor and writer have improved significantly. My course is very well equity to help struggling students as well to ensure everyone gets equal opportunities to pass and achieve their goals.
Negative: the work load can become incredibly overwhelming especially if you haven’t properly prepared yourself.
My advice to future students is: Keep track of your assignments, ask your lecturers for help when you need it. Don’t be afraid to speak up in class and make sure to always attend every class you can on time.
The course as a whole is quite good if your interested in following a career path in writing and/or editing, for me at the time, i was interested in journalism however the course was more focused towards author type writing, so in the end i was very bored of the course and was very happy to have just finished it as it wasn't what i was looking for, but like i said if want to become an author or an editor, it is quite an extensive course that covers a wide variety of topics
My advice to future students is: Always take on the advice given to you by the teachers in regards to your pieces of work as you will definitely see improvement in writing if you do
