Campus Taught

The world of Digital Marketing is ever changing, so this course is forward-thinking. It’s exciting, challenging, and designed to future proof your skills.

Digital marketing is at the forefront of today’s media landscape – always introducing the next innovation and developing new ways to engage target markets. This course will equip you with a well-rounded understanding of digital marketing principles as well as providing you with the latest tools and techniques through a balance of creative and technical modules.

Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly join an Honours programme. It’s entirely unique, and a great stepping stone to degree study.

Our programme is flexible and a range of module options allows you to customise your degree and specialise your learning for your chosen career path in digital, content and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

It’s an exciting blend of real-life experience, underpinned by academic rigour to ensure you’re ready for the industry.
