I signed up for the MA in Photography early this year and paid the discounted price. From then on all I have received from them in regard to the MA course is a stalling process telling me that they want to get the course just right and that it is with one of the UK leading universities.
I have requested a refund from Shaw Academy and as yet not received one. Has anyone else had similar experiences.
Your reply actually gives no further re assurance as to when thing will happen. saying 2020 is a very good way of standing off an actual date. Perhaps listing here who will be the crediting university and an actual availability date may go some way to reassuring people.
As to the EQF level 5/7 certificates. I already have them down loaded......
I also note you comment of "if and when the program goes live" This implies a degree of uncertainty on your part. Have you considered refunding the fees payed by all those prospective candidates who signed up for it and then giving them the option to re enlist at the same cost "If and when" it does materialise.

Advertising "free" courses that turn out to cost €40 a month. Do not use this service.

Terrible customer service.
I cancelled my account in November and then, last week (January), they took $60 out of my account!
I’ve been trying to contact them for four days, but no one is getting back to me.
They shouldn’t even have my payment information anymore.
Highway robbers. Avoid at all costs.
Response to Shaw Academy’s response from Mayel. S
I can’t respond to your comment, so I’m adding this to my original review.
Thank you for getting back to me.
I’m not sure why I didn’t get a response until I posted my review here, and on Facebook, but nevermind.
I find it interesting that you’re so surprised about your service being questioned, as Online Study Australia literally had to make a separate page for people wanting to complain about no response and scams from Shaw Academy. You can check that out on there website (which I can’t link to in here).
Anyway, thank you for processing my refund.
You mention that the terms are outlined in all comms, and I was aware of the terms, hence why I cancelled my account before the free four weeks was up so I didn’t have to pay. I also never used the service at all. I signed up and forgot about it.
Also, I did not reactivate my account in December, or ever, and every piece of comms I have received, I have ignored or tried to unsubscribe as I don’t want to take part in this service anymore.
I don’t even know what a “Toolkit and eCertificate” is so there must be either an issue with your servers, or I have been hacked.
Lastly, just while you’re reading, I wanted to let you know that it was really hard to cancel my subscription. I looked it up and my profile just wouldn’t let me do it on my browser, or in the app, it was really glitchy (the app). I had to email you guys in order to get it done. You might need to get IT to look into that.
Anyway, thank you for your response.

SCAM - signed up for free 30 day trial. Cancelled almost immediately having reviewed the abysmal course content.
Despite getting various text messages confirming my cancellation and giving me offers to restart my membership they started taking money from my account without any authorisation.
I have been trying to get in contact with them for 2 weeks but they have not replied to my emails or twitter messages and they appear to have closed down thier UK contact number (although I have a feeling it may never have existed in the first place). I have had to get my Bank to block them and have reported this company to trading standards who said they will investigate my complaint.
I cannot believe there are positive reviews on here. I can only assume most of these are fake! If you filter for the lowest rated reviews you can see for yourself what this company is really like! Please, please, please avoid and do not fall victim as I have!

ShawAcademy is indeed one of the best place a person can gain techskills even if such person have a pre-novice knowledge of what he's to dive into.
From my experience: having been a student of ShawAcademy just for 2hours in 2days, I have a great understanding of the foundational concept of GraphicDesign, on Element and Principles, their uses, meaning and applications.
Though its a free lecture to attend for a short period, yet what we the student are receiving, have received and will receive have been the best.
Thank your ShawAcademy for this opportunity.

Signed up for a free trial, cancelled within the trail period. Took €40 off my card over a month later. Do not use this company, they've been in financial trouble before and just look at the recent reviews.
Review by Romeandback Toulová3 weeks ago
Hello, I want to be positive about this because I invested positive energy into Shaw's courses and for a long time held them in high estime as online educators. The video format is great; I was able to finish my diploma in photography at my pace over many months perhaps a year. So there is some stability to their offer. I paid for a lifetime membership and have had no issues about that. I did have to call in about my diploma not being properly transferred to their new interface. They settled that after a few emails but after a year maybe they are telling me I have do redo assignements for a diploma that I completed many years ago. Also, you hope that by paying for courses you will have minimal interaction with an educator. I never received any responses to messages I sent to the educator. Was it worth the lifetime membership? Is it worth pursuing with them? Well, the courses gave me a boost in confidence, and the teacher is a genuine photographer, I have no doubt but I could have followed the table of contents of any intro to photography book and just found matching videos on you tube. You would have the structure and the content without the hassles and through youtube you have access to online free courses by some of the most reputable photographers in the world and the quintessential benfit of multiple points of vue. Bottom line, legitimate structured video lessons by practitioners in the field but little evaluation and support outside of that, a shaky infrastructure and a lack of transparence which puts this organization closer to an online scam in terms of objective criteria and the way they function and present themselves; a rather impersonal approach (the only thing saving them is that they eventually respond to some emails and are easy to reach on the phone, if you have the time to chase after them, and they're always friendly and usually respond to the actual question)

this is the great course which help a beginner from a scratch to understand the concepts. The way of teaching is very good and able to relate the things to normal life we can see so much of graphic desig in our daily life.
I gave four stars because the course is free for 4 days so atleast for 4 days everything should be made free for us.review

The instructors are really great and i love the way they remind you about your classes with a call. It makes me feel special and then the live class makes you focus and commited to the class.
Review by Odgg3 weeks ago
The classes have been great so far. Only challenge is the details of the pricing plans are not really clear on the app for a first timer and wasn't really addressed in the FAQ section
