The discount has been running for quite some time now in various forms. I signed up for £29 plus I added 4 additional personalised assignments for an additional charge last year. I initially signed up at the same time as my friend as I have been teaching him photography and thought I'd work through the course with him as it was cheap. The main bulk of the course is fairly basic and easy enough to work through. The personalised assignment at the end and any additional ones added are tailored to your level and are designed to push you outside of your comfort zone in order to improve your photography. The course work is well laid out and detailed enough and Mark and Connie are always on hand to help if needed. Very worthwhile for a beginner but for more advanced shooters it is recommended that u add additional personalised assignments from my experience. I am not affiliated with them in any way either, just my experience of dealing with them and doing the course which I have not yet finished due to other commitments. I have a couple of assignments to complete then my 4 additional ones.
