My CIM qualification is currently being completed at the Oxford College Of Marketing, and although there has been a lot of navigating , the support team are incredible, especially Rebecca Wagner! From prompt responses to detailed explanations, their support has been invaluable. I highly recommend using them.
Just completed a Level 6 Apprenticeship with the college. Highly recommend!Both my tutor and the office team were great and really supportive throughout! I've been so pleased with the quality of everything here that I'm now going on to study further for marketing and digital marketing diplomas through the college.

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.
