What our students say

I just wanted to say thanks very much for all your support during my Digital module. I passed with distinction which obviously I wouldn't have achieved without your help. On the back of this, I have now decided to complete the rest of the Diploma and will be in touch with your admin office to take that forward.

William Lee Business Development Manager, Said Business School

Cambridge Marketing College has amazing tutors, friendly administration staff and great teaching material.

CMC 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.

Felicity Dale Associate Director, International Strategic Development, Global University Systems

 I have received notification last night from the CIM regarding my Digital assignment, and I am really very excited to let you know that I have achieved a score of 78%, obtaining a Grade A ! This has been a very pleasant surprise and a nice one to start the weekend with! I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being such a wonderful teacher, I very much enjoyed the summer classes you taught. I really am grateful for your time in guiding me and providing the very useful feedback on my first draft, without which it would not be possible for me to achieve my grade.

Su Ann Khoo GPO Marketing, GSK

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