How to study

Cambridge Marketing College offers very flexible methods of study to suit your needs or availability. View all study options.

Distance Learning UK (18 months)

Download our Guide to Distance Learning

We have successfully taught distance learning to thousands of delegates over the last 20 years. Distance Learning is available anywhere in the UK and also overseas via our World Service. One of the key benefits of distance learning is the flexibility. You can start when you want, choose when and where you study, and set your own pace. If you want to complete your course quickly you can have tutor support at the same time for as many modules as you need. If work or other pressures mean you need to slow your studies down you can extend your support and even upgrade to attend taught sessions.

We have a specialist Distance Learning Course Director, Kiran Kapur, who will help you get started on your studies, work out a personal study plan with you, be there to answer questions and help you keep your studies on track.

Our distance learning options include:

Specialist tutor support for each module - our tutors are practising marketing professionals who bring current business experience and proven teaching skills to our courses. Many are Chartered Marketers and they consistently deliver excellent pass rates. There is no limit on the number of times you may contact your tutor by Email.

Study Guides printed and available electronically -  allowing onscreen reading, highlighting, and annotation - making them a truly portable resource. The Guides include links to the syllabus, reading references, self test exercises, real life examples and assignments to be completed and marked by your tutor. Feedback from your tutor will help you monitor your progress and see how you can improve your assignment or exam technique.

Set of Handbooks and/or textbooks for all UK based delegates - delivered to the workplace so that you do not have to spend time and resources finding the right materials. Recommended reading lists are provided for World Service delegates to access locally to keep their courier costs to a minimum.

A key benefit of studying by distance learning with us is that we also teach courses throughout the year.

Upgrading to taught sessions costs just £100 + VAT per day.

You should allow between 8 and 12 hours a week for home study if studying by distance learning.

I just wanted to advise that my study books have arrived today. Wow! That’s very impressive. I wasn’t expecting such a volume of professionally presented publications and study aids as part of the fee - this already way surpasses the support I experienced with a previous marketing college, and I haven’t even logged in to my course yet! As we know, customer experience is paramount and, as a new student and ‘client’, the CMC has made me feel very valued indeed. Thank you. Looking forward to my bedtime reading! Many thanks indeed.
