What our students say

The teaching and method of learning at CMC - weekend attendance combined with home study - really suited my lifestyle; it accommodated my full time work, helped me manage my family, and the tutors and structure of the courses and materials really gave me the flexibility I needed. My thirst for learning was definitely re-engaged as a result of my positive experience at CMC.

I've enjoyed every minute of my studies with Cambridge Marketing College. The tutors are experienced, can discuss any Marketing issue put to them and provide appropriate real life examples. The College is excellently run and I have always felt valued. I would thoroughly recommend studying for a CIM qualification at CMC.

Emma Gooderham Managing Director Allies Computing

CMC proved to be my best option. It was a most uplifting experience in terms of excellent tutor support whenever you need it, professional study materials, and the valuable online webinars as if you are physically in the classroom. This combination is fundamental for a distance learning student.

Shafaq Sadiq Marketing Officer Johnson & Johnson (Pakistan)

The students and teachers of the CIPR qualifications at Cambridge Marketing College are to be congratulated. A 100% pass rate is a real achievement and testament to everyone’s hard work and the quality of the teaching and students. Congratulations once again from all at the CIPR.

The experience and knowledge of CMC tutors has ensured Barclays’ colleagues have a firm grounding in marketing and business theory and are able to apply this in a practical commercial environment. CMC has been fulfilling Barclays’ Marketing training for over three years, and continue to exceed our expectations.

I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks to you and the college for your excellent support and guidance without which it would have been very difficult for me to accomplish the task. Thanking you once again.
