I recently completed my CIM Diploma with Oxford College of Marketing and had a great experience with them. Their online learning facilities are fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone looking to complete a CIM qualification.
I completed a Diploma in Professional Marketing (Level 6), and following my positive experience, I highly recommend Oxford College of Marketing . Very professional and kind staff too. Thank you for all your great efforts!
Last year I decided to take the Level 3 certification in Digital Marketing with OXCOM and I am so happy with my choice. They provided so much guidance, even if I was a distant learner the support I received was priceless. I landed on my first ever Marketing job and now I am looking forward to completing the next step. They teach you from scratch and after taking the course you have the confidence to apply the knowledge. Outstanding service provided!
I'm currently studying the CIM Certificate in Professional Digital Marketing at the Oxford College of Marketing. I have been very impressed with everything regarding my virtual learning: Jane Adrain has been the tutor on my modules so far and she teaches the topic in every engaging and knowledgeable way - having breakouts so topics can be discussed with other students in the class, giving the online learning a social element; tutors are also very helpful and available for questions during assignments; college staff are very responsive and friendly; lots of learning resources are provided and reading materials suggested. Very positive about my learning so far and I highly recommend the Oxford College of Marketing.
I really appreciate the way Oxford college support in all communications and the material shared by them is really fantastic which is quite friendly and easy to grab and understand. I highly recommend this college.
I picked Oxford College of Marketing from the list of CIM study centres I originally contacted because they were able to answer all my questions and provide guidance from first point of contact. All their communications were prompt and genuinely helpful instead of a sales pitch.In my studies with them, I have found the same level of support, especially during the Covid pandemic. The tutors and the support team truly go above and beyond. No question is left unanswered and there are a number of extra resources you are given access to, as well as curated reading lists and online articles which are relevant to the module you are studying.I recommend the college and most importantly the staff.
