What our students are saying...

The course was really useful and informative – we could all see that you had made great efforts to structure it in the most beneficial way possible. It exposed me to formats of writing and career options that I had little knowledge about before, and instilled confidence in me to consider this as a serious career pursuit. I’m sure it must have encouraged other members of the class in similar ways. Having Tanya as a mentor was an amazing experience – her passion for good writing and enthusiasm made the course all the more engaging and fruitful.

Sharon Sabu

thank you very much for the short course. I have gained knowledge in the types of writing and it developed my writing skill at the same time. I like to thank Tanya a lot , for being extremely patient in explaining about questions we raised on the activity and lectures. As well as, giving a handful of tips on how I can improve my writing skills when English is my 2nd language. Appreciated for her understanding, and positive encouragement as well. Not to forget as well, ArchitectureChat , you have really provided a very good platform for me to have a chance to learn this specific course. Honestly, it is not common to find course especially tailored to such specific skill, not even in most university. Thank you very much, and that too, on the student discount you have given to me. Appreciated that very much.
