What our students say
I would highly recommend the CIPR Diploma course run by Cambridge Marketing College. It has allowed me to reflect on and understand what guides my practice, and has vastly improved my strategic thinking. Applying some of the learning has directly contributed to bringing additional work and funding into my unit.
Thanks to the CIPR diploma, and therefore thanks to you, my salary has just jumped considerably and my future career prospects are better than I had ever hoped. I start work on Tuesday. Thank you!
The tutors were fantastic and all the materials provided were great. I always recommend Cambridge Marketing College.
Cambridge Marketing College has amazing tutors, friendly administration staff and great teaching material.
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.
If anybody ever questions the value of PR theory, please let them know that after only two sessions of the CIPR Diploma I was able to use it at a job interview to justify the creation of a PR (rather than a marketing) position at one of the UK’s biggest wealth management firms and to argue that the best person to do it would be me.
The CIPR Diploma has provided me with excellent theoretical knowledge needed in this ever increasingly demanding and competitive communications environment. Working with CMC provides a platform to apply my learning directly into my profession, where both my employer and I have benefited. Going back into education was always a daunting prospect, but the CIPR Diploma course has provided me with first hand support whenever it was asked for, giving me the best possible chance of securing not only invaluable knowledge, but a good grade too.
Thank you, Alan, so much for your brilliant tuition and support throughout the course. I thoroughly enjoyed the days at Nottingham – they were always extremely well-planned, engaging and full of detailed content – and I felt you were always there for valuable help and feedback whenever we needed extra support out of lesson time.
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.
