Options in subjects around the internet of things and creative disciplines, delivered in state of the art studios, will equip for life in the fast lane, after graduation. Skills and experience The course is designed to develop both your transferable skills and subject specific knowledge. You will learn to think critically and analytically about important ideas and issues, and to produce plans for companies within the industry, in response to active marketing problems. Through executive style workshops, guest lectures, case studies and real world projects, you will develop problem solving capabilities for a range of scenarios. Leaving Destinations This degree has been developed with input from a range of industry experts and we anticipate that there will be strong demand for our graduates. The anticipated employment opportunities will be with communications agencies (advertising, PR, sponsorship, market research, social media, digital, etc), in paid and organic search roles, with employers who require work ready graduates to manage their digital marketing activities.
The first year will introduce you to the contemporary marketing environment, with an emphasis on the digital channels of communication and the pillars of business management (law, finance, human resource management, IT, decision making). Year 2 develops your knowledge in areas of customer insight, digital media, digital communications, project management and relationship management. The marketing content in year 2 will introduce you to branding within the luxury sectors, a focus for local businesses. In preparation for gaining a placement for Year 3, and a graduate job once qualified, you will study interview techniques, how to prepare for assessment centres and how to brand yourself in a competitive market. The final year brings together your previous study, with modules on how to personalize the customer experience, as well as strategic and global marketing, delivered alongside a module on agency life, to prepare you for the fast paced nature of the digital marketing industries.

English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
