What our students say

“Studying at London Met was a great chance for me to step away from my day job and to meet, talk and learn from lecturers and students from diverse backgrounds. This inspired me to look and think differently and not be afraid to try new ideas at work.” - Ayo Abbas, Marketing Communications Manager

“Studying for the CIM postgraduate diploma is a real commitment and it's important to make the right choice of course provider. I switched to the London Metropolitan University after a false start at another university as I'd heard they had high pass rates and the teachers were of a high standard. I wasn't disappointed. The location and course dates were really convenient and the tutors were passionate about their subjects, often bringing their own experience to bear and encouraging other students to participate. I enjoyed the supportive working environment and went on to study business at master's level so found the CIM course a great help both professionally and academically.” - Abigail Brown, Head of Health Marketing

“I thoroughly enjoyed studying for the CIM qualifications at London Metropolitan University. Working full time in the City, the location was convenient and I was impressed with their prior pass rates. Although initially wary of being back in a classroom situation, I enjoyed the networking it provided and found it gave me extra motivation to complete the course. I appreciated the practical experience of the tutors, and found them very approachable.” - Caroline Wright, Marketing Manager

After the course

You will acquire skills and understanding to perform at management level, and students have gone on to become heads of marketing at a wide range of organisations, such as market intelligence specialist S&P Global, international construction company Mace Group, and the charity Cancer Research UK.

Attendance options

Typically students complete this course in twelve to eighteen months but the new modular pathway qualification has been structured to reflect the need for a flexible approach. Therefore each module can also be taken as a self-contained award which can be built up to attain the full certificate.

Evening classes take place at our Moorgate campus from 6pm - 9pm. These can be taken as a full course or as a self-contained award. There are seven weekend classes.
