We’ll take the time to meet your academics – understanding your USPs, real-world impacts, and what differentiates you from other providers. We’ll create easy-to-read page layouts (much like this page would make a good course description) – all drafted in your house style, and then turned into fully functional webpages if you’d like us to.

“Tim is a great copywriter. He is particularly skilled at working with academic colleagues to identify the distinctive features of their programmes. Tim is tactful, reliable and hardworking and I would recommend his services.”

“Your seamless integration of student and academic stories into content is crucial, giving far more inspiration and reassurance than buzzwords can. You also have a knack for creating tone-of-voice guidance and rewriting jargon into plain English. And your attention to detail is impeccable!”

– Beth Hayes, Director of Marketing and Communications

Does your website have paragraph after paragraph? One of our specialisms is rewriting website content into accessible formats. This makes them easy to read and navigate quickly, while removing some of the daunt future students might feel from scrolling through large amounts of information.

We’ve completed many website rewrites, at all sorts of levels. from creating simpler layouts in Word or rewriting into a new tone of voice to starting from scratch and building the pages ourselves in your CMS.
