The Marketing Gateway Programme is a free* course available via Intensive Weekends or Distance Learning and is unique to the Oxford College of Marketing. It is a non accredited course which is designed to help students (who do not necessarily meet the strict CIM entry guidelines) to fast track onto a higher course by providing an overview of marketing theory needed for the higher levels. The course prepares students for the CIM level entry tests. The test along with advice from the College, should help you decide on your level of entry.

It may be possible on the basis of work experience and/or qualifications to enter at the higher levels when combined with the MGP. We will be happy to make an assessment of your entry level, according to any supporting evidence you can provide, and will help you with your application.

The Oxford College of Marketing offer gives students the opportunity to save a year of study and get a higher qualification. Self financing students will also save money.

* The Marketing Gateway Programme has a cost of £250 +VAT which is fully refundable when you sign up for a full course.
