I started my Digital Diploma in Professional Marketing with CIM in late 2017. Sponsored by my then employer, I learnt everything from how to make strategic decisions based on data and how to find that data, to the importance of the customer’s experience and their ever-changing journey. Completing the course has since made me consider all factors and touch points before making any final decisions towards marketing activities.

Most of all, the course has given me the confidence to contribute towards a business’s marketing strategy, to discuss key points whilst giving my opinions to peers and senior stakeholders. All this has led me to a new position in the legal services sector where I now have the chance to write up and deliver my own digital marketing strategy.

As I didn’t go to university, I was nervous that this would restrict me when applying for jobs. However, part way through my CIM qualification, I had the opportunity to apply for a promotion for a marketing executive position.

I personally feel the knowledge gained throughout the course, and the professionalism it allowed me to show, helped me to become the successful candidate.

I have learnt so much from the course and I have been able to integrate this back into my work as both an apprentice and a marketing executive. I have been able to apply learning from the Mastering Metrics module when reporting and evaluating campaigns, which has not only been valuable for myself but also the wider team.

Digital Strategy allowed me to introduce and implement an influencer strategy for the first time at the RNLI. Finally, Strategic Marketing has allowed me to look at marketing in a wider context at the RNLI and as an industry. I am now able to take a step back and evaluate marketing as a whole rather than working through specifics.

I feel that my course has truly been invaluable to my career progression and would consider the Marketing Leadership Programme course in the future. As well as this, the support OXCOM provided, guided me through the course and I would recommend the evening courses to help understand further!

Being part of the CIM Level 7 Marketing Leadership Programme has been a fantastic experience in which I met some great marketers and found the material very engaging. Undertaking the assignments based on my organisation has given me fantastic insight into what makes my company tick and the strategic direction we are headed. It’s a benefit to both myself and my company, as I am finding myself constantly reviewing work and highlighting only the most critical points.

I am extremely proud to have been awarded the prestigious CIM Top Worldwide Student Prize for the Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing. Studying for this qualification has helped me to formalise and deepen my understanding gained in my professional career.

My undergraduate degree was in Sport and Recreation Management so studying for professional qualifications has been a brilliant way of upskilling myself and providing knowledge of effective high-level strategic marketing.  Working in a higher education institution, industry recognised qualifications for professional staff do help to provide an increased level of credibility in what can traditionally be a very academic influenced organisation.

All modules focussed on real-world, applied marketing, but specifically useful for me were the topics of risk and change management, maximising competitive and sustainable marketing and relationship strategies and the impact of reputational perception on organisational performance. These have certainly influenced the strategies I have adopted to overcome business challenges.

Being a CIM member also provides access to a network of thousands of other marketeers and industry insights on the latest trends.

For my postgraduate qualification, I studied remotely through the Oxford College of Marketing. This worked for me as I needed a way to study that could be totally flexible and that I could manage alongside my demanding job. Whilst this method does require a fair degree of self-motivation, I found that the structure of the course, knowledge of the tutors and the support available through the Oxford College of Marketing was excellent. I can’t thank the centre enough for all their help.

Sue Pimblett

Since starting my Diploma in Professional Marketing, I have found myself go from strength to strength at work. I am now in my third role at my current employer as Marketing Manager, having started in 2016 as a Marketing Officer and beginning work towards the Diploma in 2017.

I am thrilled to have recruited a strong marketing team of three people within this time, and I have been heavily involved in key projects for the organisation which include being the brand ambassador for two new sub-brands under the Group umbrella. I was able to practically apply my newfound marketing theory and metrics knowledge to contribute towards the strategic positioning of these brands.

I was very proud to graduate with a Merit this year and would not hesitate to recommend the excellent tuition I had from Oxford College of Marketing.

Katie

Oxford College of Marketing is very professional! The team has always been friendly, helpful and available, from the support staff to the tutors. The contents of the course is excellent, with very good books recommended to extend our knowledge. I highly recommend Oxford College of Marketing to anyone considering a career in Marketing!

Elodie

I have just completed the Professional Certificate in Marketing course, via distance learning and intensive weekends, at the Oxford College of Marketing. I highly recommend them. It can be very difficult to juggle training and a very full time job but they were so supportive and flexible it became a pleasure. They are a great team and always so helpful, I would not go anywhere else. In fact I enjoyed it so much I have continued on to the Diploma via distance learning with them. Thanks OXCOM!

Claire, Regional Marketing Manager

This is a fantastic course which really broadens your knowledge of digital marketing techniques, the digital environment and developing a digital marketing strategy. This diploma is suitable for anyone who works within the marketing/ sales/ fundraising arena, whether commercial or third sector. The support you receive from OxCom is brilliant and the online tools to facilitate your learning process are outstanding. I just want to keep learning!

Hayley, Head of Income Generation and PR

Currently I am studying for my second module for the Professional Marketing Diploma, and I really appreciate the relevant and practical know-how that this course provides. The workload is quite high and demands significant focus, but the benefits are tangible, in terms of practical knowledge, up-to-date coursebooks, and access to world-call information databases.

Mihai, Marketing Manager

I highly recommend studying the CIM Professional Diploma through Oxcom. The online learning resource and helpful staff made distance learning allot less challenging than I ever thought it would be. I’ve carried straight on with the Postgrad and the team are as supportive as ever.

Liz, Senior Marketing & Communications Officer

CIM Professional Postgraduate Diploma student Helen Frances has recently achieved the highest marks throughout the world for the Analysis and Decision (A&D) module which she recently completed at our Bournemouth Centre as part of her marketing course.

Emma, Writer

I have just completed and passed the first module on the Professional Certificate in Marketing with Oxford College of Marketing. I love the fact that on top of all the materials you receive free with the distance learning they also provide intensive weekkends and revision days. The team are really supportive and are available around the clock. Every query is dealt with professionally. The study materials are great. I am so pleased I chose this college for my studies. Thank you.

Debbie, Shared Services Communications Advisor

I am studying this course as a distance learner who is trying to veer away from B2B telemarketing and I am finding it totally absorbing. There is good reading material, podcasts, webinar’s, help lines and powerpoint presentations. I feel the unique thing about the course is that because it is structured to “roll” i.e. as a module ends it starts over again, but changes according to the ever changing world of digital marketing. So, overall excellent value for money.

Paul, Internet Research Marketing Executive

The team at Oxford College of Marketing are professional, friendly and supportive, and will help you to plan the course around your work/lifestyle. The tutors are supportive and insightful, and will push you to succeed with their carefully planned out lessons and podcasts. I could not recommend Oxford College of Marketing enough to anyone who is looking to further develop their career in marketing. Thank you for all of the help and guidance so far.

Brad, Marketing Executive at Premier Paper Group Ltd

If you are looking to take any CIM qualification I would highly recommend you study with the Oxford College of Marketing. This programme is very challenging and demands a lot of time but with discipline and the expert tutors at Oxford College of Marketing you will be successful. I tried various institutions before and none measured up to Oxfords’ standard of tutoring. I was also impressed with the detailed study guides, regular podcasts and quick responses by tutors. Special thanks to Tim Lane.

Kate, Senior Public Relations Officer

I have just completed my Professional Diploma in Marketing through Oxford College of Marketing and have been really impressed with the level of support they have provided me with throughout my studies. The teaching staff on the course have been exceptional and have been a credit to the high grades that I was fortunate to receive. There is no doubt that the course is highly challenging, but with a lot of hard work and dedication I have found it to be highly rewarding and very worthwhile.

Sarah, Marketing Co-ordinator

I would recommend the Oxford College of Marketing for anyone looking to study the CIM Postgraduate Diploma. As a distance learning student I have found the online support and materials fantastic – a huge support for this demanding course which enabled me to achieve an A grade in my first module. I look forward to the next few modules with you!

Sue, Sales and Marketing Manager

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Oxford College of Marketing to anyone. I started my distance learning course with another provider and switched to OCM half way through. The team at OCM have been fantastic in supporting me with my studies and the tutors are extremely helpful and encouraging. The online course material is very well set out and easy to use, with the content broken into manageable chunks. All in all, an excellent course and nice people to deal with!

Sarah, Marketing Executive

The Oxford College of Marketing has been a fantastic way of learning for me by using their distance learning program. Each module of the course is delivered to a timetable allowing you to fit the learning in around your work and personnel life. The modules consist of downloadable podcasts, and PowerPoint presentations which are also delivered in a weekly webinar by the Distance Learning Manager with amazing delivery. I would thoroughly recommend this course and The Oxford College of Marketing to everyone.

Steve, Product Manager
I cant recommend these guys highly enough. i was unfortunate enough to have a family bereavement right at the start of my course and I felt they went out of their way to help me rearrange learning schedules and not fall behind. Excellent support all round.
Lesley Drake, Altus Services Ltd. Oxford, United Kingdom

OCM for me was more than a course provider. It helped me deal with and passed two modules from the Professional Diploma in Management in the context of a very busy personal and professional life. Their constant and constructive feedback was essential for understanding the tasks of assignments and their flexibility and the wide range of resources made me pass the first modules. I never felt the distance between Romania and UK because of the close communication between us.

Roxana, Business Development Manager

Thanks Oxford College of Marketing for helping me through my CAM DME and MCB exams! The support received and the excellent study session contributed to my successful results so far! Highly recommended!

Annalisa, Segment Marketing Specialist

I’ve just finished studying the Diploma and I’m very impressed with the Oxford College of Marketing. Their tutors (some are CIM senior examiners themselves) and teaching material is very comprehensive and you do actually get responses from your tutors – unlike other colleges. Make no mistake – it is a lot of work so this is why it’s important to choose the right college. OxCom’s results speak for themselves. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Emma, Marketing & Communications Co-ordinator
Oxford College of Marketing provides a real support to students to succeed with the CAM Digital Marketing Diploma. Tutors, courses, webinars and online resources are excellent and help me also for my work. Thanks!
Lola Rivero, Business Development & Communication Senior Director

The Diploma studies are challenging yet achievable with the hard work and dedication. The lecturers and tutors are absolutely amazing, with their help and guidance I managed to finally snap out of the academic University thinking and started applying strategic Marketing to my organisation. Would recommend Oxford College of Marketing to anyone, wishing to progress effectively in their careers!

Ingrid, Senior Sales and Marketing

I’m studying this programme through Oxford College of Marketing. The intensive weekend approach works really well around a full-time job. The course tutors are all very well experienced and provide excellent support. The support from the team at Oxcom is also first class.

Hugh, Executive Director of Marketing

Excellent course and great support. Recommend highly.

Mathew, Administration and Operations Manager
I shopped around extensively for the best fit college to support me through this qualification. As a distance learner I prioritised the level of support – and I have not been disappointed. I would recommend Oxford College of Marketing to anyone.
Kate Dennehy, Sales and Marketing Assistant at RehabWorks
I studied my CIM Professional Diploma in Marketing with Oxford College of Marketing, and I can’t recommend them highly enough. The quality of the tutors and the level of support throughout the course is fantastic. I chose to take the route of evening classes rather than distance learning, and although its a big commitment to attend a 3 hour class each week, the level of support and hands on approach from the tutors makes it really worth while.
Belinda Rounce, Guest Marketing Manager Europe at InterContinental Hotels Group

What a great team! Helpful and knowledgeable, the staff at Oxford College of Marketing made me feel so comfortable as an international student. Thanks for all the support!

Vashtie, Marketing Analyst

I have really enjoyed my year of study with Oxford College of Marketing. All the tutors have exceptional levels of knowledge and enthusiasm, and I am considering returning to the College to do the Diploma level next academic year. I studied in the weekly classroom environment and found the discussions with the other students to be very beneficial to my studies.

Ruth, Marketing assistant

Great support during my studies in Digital Marketing. Dedicated tutors, professional approach, highly recommended.

Irina, Consultant
Fantastic online resources to support you with your studies and lots of help and advice when you need it. The intensive weekends have allowed me a great opportunity to meet other students and share experiences. Great course.
Elaine Wills, Marketing Capability Manager at AstraZeneca

The course offered by OXCOM is packed full of information, the tutor’s an support staff are extremely helpful and cooperative. If you are thinking about studying marketing in my opinion there isn’t a better course or place of study. It isn’t for the faint hearted and is a lot of work but it wouldn’t be rewarding or worthwhile otherwise.

Rebecca, Accounts/Market Res

I’m half way through the Diploma, and have had one set of results back, which have been most pleasing. Found the quality of teaching and materials very high and it is a well organised college, which goes a long way for a time-pressed and stressed student.

Taryn

The team at the Oxford College of Marketing have always been, in my experience, very friendly and helpful and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The intensive weekends are extremely helpful and provide a great opportunity for meeting fellow marketers. The selection of webinars offered for each module are really useful and it helps that you can watch a recording of a webinar if you cannot attend the live streaming.

Jennifer, Marketing Officer

I have studied with 3 other institutions (well recognised) for different qualifications but Oxford College of Marketing has been outstanding on all levels the Diploma qualification and is of a very high standard and although I am a long distance learner the virtual platform is convenient and doesn’t feel that distant at all. Thank you for high professionalism, efficiency and excellent customer service. I give your brand a ten out of ten!

Melorine, Marketing Director

Completing this course as a distance learner wouldn’t have been possible without the outstanding support of the OXCOM team. I was able to complete all four modules within my 10 month timescale thanks to the help of the team. Their up-to-date online course content was also invaluable including the regular engaging and relevant webinars. I would highly recommend Oxford College of Marketing to anyone who wants to complete a marketing qualification in a time frame that suits them.

Emma, Marketing Assistant

I already have the postgrad diploma but used Oxford College to top up with a digital module. Somehow I got a distinction and that’s less of a boast and more of a recommendation for Oxford College’s patient guidance and support I think!

Anna, Internal Communications Manager

Oxford College of Marketing have been completely brilliant throughout my course so far. The support and help on hand by the support centre and tutor has been first rate. I am a distance learning student and the online resources and webinars have been excellent offering first class support throughout my MCB and DMP modules. Just DME to go! Highly recommended!

Jackie, Information Specialist

I have studied all four modules for the CIM DipM and I have found the support from OXCOM outstanding. I have studied via intensive weekend however there were more options available. IW were perfect for me and access to the online portal along with a personal tutor has been key to success. All tutors I have had have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable, in particular Diane Cotton and Clive Lunn. I would recommend this course for anyone wanting to take the step into managing marketing.

Danielle, Marketing Communications Executive

I recommend the Oxford College of Marketing. The staff are great, from helping me with letters to my employers and scholarship discounts before starting the course, through to checking on my progress, answering queries along the way and congratulations on achieving a ‘B’ in my exam, they have made me feel that each individuals’ progress really matters to them. My thanks especially to Dave, Cathy and Ray.

Fiona, Marketing Coordinator

I’ve just achieved this qualification after studying at Reading. It’s a demanding course but the Oxford College of Marketing provided superb support throughout, helping us all manage the course around our workload.

Paul, Marketing Ninja

Oxford College of Marketing have been helpful and flexible throughout my studies for the Professional Certificate. Changing from part-time evening courses to distance learning half way through the course was hard but OXCOM were supportive and helped me achieve this qualification.

Rebecca, Content Executive

The Oxford College of Marketing provides great support to its students. The lectures are well organized, providing theoritical as well as practical information via various methods – from presentations to webinars, podcasts, video lectures, etc. Moreover, the tutors are professionals and always ready to support each assingment project. Therefore, I would highly recommend the Oxford College of Marketing.

Mira, Marketing & Communication Specialist

The Oxford College of Marketing has been instrumental in the development of my strategic understanding of marketing concepts. The teaching and support is exceptional, the lecturers are highly knowlegdeble and the study tecniques equip one for academic success. I doubt I would have had as much success with any other CIM provider. I higly reccomend the Oxford College of Marketing for anyone thinking of undertaking a CIM qualification.
