I liked that I could do the tutorials at my own pace and I was able to complete it in one year. I also like that the coursework wasn’t overbearing and that I could maintain my full-time work at the same time.
Since gaining my qualification, I’ve gone onto Broadcast Journalism and now have a regular slot working with a London based radio station, as well being published in national magazines and online material to boot.
I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never seriously thought I’d be able to make money from it. After reading all about the course I decided to give it a go, and I’m very glad that I did so. At the time of writing I’m currently undertaking my fourth paid commission.
Since completing the course, I have published almost 100 features on a wide range of destinations (mostly in Asia and Europe) and topics (food, arts and culture, adventure, nightlife) and have worked on a handful of travel guides including AFAR and the Luxe Guides.
