What our students say

After working in Marketing for a year already; I’m thoroughly enjoying this apprenticeship, it’s already taught me lots of valuable information that I use on a day-to-day basis. The coursework is easily accessed and allows me to work at my own pace whilst balancing my job at the same time.


Dylan Cooper Marketing Assistant Apprentice, The Parts Alliance

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

CMC Alumnus

Working with Thomas McAlinden my tutor has been fantastic. The feedback I received on my draft was seriously impactful and helped shape my assignment in the final weeks. The greatest benefit to me was that Thomas was always on hand to help. Every phone call, email or text was answered and responded to without delay. 

Brenton Williams Foundation Certificate Student, Gilead Sciences Inc.

Really good. I am enjoying it very much”: It’s opened my eyes to things I didn’t know” such as “how I shop as a consumer. My Line Manager is very helpful and supportive and my tutor is lovely and helpful. It’s reassuring to know I can reach out to him.
