I am studying my Diploma in Professional Digital Marketing with Oxford College of Marketing. They have been responsive and informative at all times.

Whilst working remotely at home, and in the midst of the pandemic, I was looking for a qualification to further my career development. Heartfelt thanks to all the staff and lecturers for their support. One of my criteria was to complete the whole qualification within 6 months instead of a year. The school were supportive and I've achieved a Distinction overall.
