Hence, over your years of study you will have opportunities to gain work experience; listen to industry speakers; deal with real world problem scenarios; undertake international field trips; engage with international collaborative projects; and study abroad. Your learning journey will be further enhanced by our modern teaching and learning spaces, which has a growing number of specialist teaching rooms, such as our DigiComm Lab, which replicates the feel of working in a contemporary marketing agency using relevant industry software and tools.

A key indicator of the quality of our courses are the number which have been accredited by key organisations, which in some instances also offer the opportunity to gain additional qualifications. For example, the accreditation by the CIM (Charted Institute of Marketing), means students can study for a dual award; students on the Advertising and Marketing course have the advantage of studying on a course which has gained accreditation by EPAS (European Foundation of Management Development), which is a globally recognised business management organisation; students studying HR can benefit from our status as a CIPD (Charted Institute of Personnel and Development), which provides the opportunity to gain CIPD qualifications alongside their degree; and for the sport and event management courses, these these have been accredited by the CMI (Chartered Management Institute).
