What do employers think?

The Foundation Degree in Creative and Professional Writing sounds really interesting and diverse in scope. It is important to gain relevant writing skills that transfer easily into the professional world – the course seems as though will it enhance vocabulary, creative skills and literary knowledge. Through the many modules students can learn to develop skills that are invaluable in professional environments – such as persuasive language and in particular, knowing your audience. Differentiating your tone of writing to suit a spectrum of status/countries/professions is extremely important and will transfer effortlessly into any working environment.
