I recently completed a Marketing Leadership Gateway course with the Oxford College of Marketing. The teaching and support was excellent and I would recommend them to any aspiring or experienced marketing professional.

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

I started studying with Oxford College of Marketing in 2019 to complete my CIM Professional Marketing qualification. The support and advice I've had in that time has been second to none. The online platform is perfect for distance learning or gaining additional support around your face to face classes.During the pandemic it has been a huge relief to have access to the online platform and support whenever I've needed it from the admin team or tutors. Without this, I wouldn't have been able to achieve a distinction in my Strategic Marketing module.It's an excellent education service which I would definitely recommend.
