*Please be aware that I was gifted the NCC course*
Regular readers will know that I am having a bit of “arggggggggggh” as I am about to turn a certain age (no, I still can’t quite bring myself to say the actual age) crisis! As a result, I made some March resolutions. What can I say? I’m always late to the party. One of my aims was to complete some sort of course for myself. Therefore, I couldn’t quite believe my luck when NCC Home Learning approached me and asked if I would like to try one of their courses in return for a review.
NCC Creative Writing Diploma Course
Obviously, I took this as a sign and promptly agreed to try their Creative Writing course. I am hoping that this course will finally give me the confidence to crack on with my novel. It would be nice if I could get the novel finished before my birthday. However, it’s not looking likely, but I can dream. I’ve been trying to write a novel since my university days…..
A big part of the reluctance has been my lack of confidence so I am hoping that the course will arm me with all of the skills I need to complete the novel. The NCC website is brilliant and you will find a fantastic range of courses. They have media courses, marketing courses, environmental, beauty, the list is endless and you will probably find that there is more than one course that appeals to you.
They have courses that will enable you to top up your existing qualifications, help you embark on a career change or pursue a hobby. The great thing about distance learning from home is that I can fit it in around my family and work. It means that I am able to gain a qualification without even having to leave the house. Best of all is that I can study at my own pace. If I am unable to study one week it’s no problem as I can simply pick it up the following week.
NUS Card And Student Discounts
You don’t have to feel like you are completing the course on your own because you will find plenty of support from the expert course tutors and student support team. Completing a course with NCC might also mean that you are eligible for an NUS card. Getting an NUS card is well worth it because you can make some really good savings. For example, you can get an NUS Extra card which means you are then able to get Amazon Student Membership. This entitles you to 6 months free membership. For this, you will get unlimited one-day delivery, unlimited instant streaming of over 15,000 titles with Prime Video.
How Have I found The NCC Creative Writing Course So Far?
So far, I have just completed one week of the course and this week has been about exploring my experiences of writing and my expectations. It has made me really think about what I am hoping to get from the course and how I am hoping to progress with the course. The course will allow me to explore different texts and genres, examine writing for different settings and hopefully build my confidence in all kinds of writing. It will also help me with approaching publishers etc.
I have high hopes for the course and I will let you know in the coming weeks how I get on. I’m excited to get started. So far my March resolutions seem to be going well. Now if only I could sort out my foot and start exercising again.
*Please be aware that I was gifted this course in return for my honest review. However, I will be completing this course as a student and all words and images are my own.*
