What our students say

It had been over 12 years since I had undertaken any further education so the though of study filled me with dread. Juggling a new job, family commitments and studying for my Diploma took a lot of hard work but the support and assistance from the College, lecturers, PSMG and fellow students was fantastic and a great team spirit rapidly built up.

Pippa Corbett Marketing Manager, Peters, Elworthy & Moore

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..

Allie Mae Taylor Director, Have Design & Marketing

CMC Alumnus

This is my second course with the CMC and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality, informative and, most importantly, usable marketing course.

Nicola O'Loughlin Marketing Manager, Woodfines LLP

The tutors were fantastic and all the materials provided were great. I always recommend Cambridge Marketing College.

CMC Alumnus

I found the whole organisation, content and quality to be exceptionally high. The coursework was challenging (especially balancing with a demanding full time job!) but provided great insight to enable me to take the next steps in my career. The tutors were also very helpful indeed.

CMC Professional Services Alumnus

You really have been so so helpful, and I really appreciate it. CMC are lucky to have such wonderful staff who really go the extra mile.
