Study Options and Timetable

At the core of our ethos is a student learning experience, that is flexible, people focused and inclusive. We have put in place a student support system that focuses on your development as a competent and confident marketer!

Covid-19 Update: While it is not possible at the minute, due to Covid-19 restrictions, to run our usual face to face sessions, we have put in place a new approach – tutor led live online sessions with extensive online learning materials and tailored 1-2-1 support. Study with us, and you’ll enjoy regular support webinars, assessment workshops and 1-2-1 online tutorial meetings too!

Exceptional, professional, highly informative are just a few words that come to mind when thinking of the North West School of Marketing.
