BOURNEMOUTH, England, September 1, 2011 -

The Oxford College of Marketing has long been recognised as the leading provider of Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) courses, and has 14 centres in the UK. Graduates without marketing in their degree but who have marketing experience, and experienced marketers without a degree, will be able to do a Graduate Foundation Programme in order to improve their potential level of entry.

The Centre Manager at Bournemouth, Garth Vaughan-Brown, says, “The Graduate Foundation, combined with the CIM level entry test, will help students enter at a higher level as this will save them both money and time by bypassing the certificate level.”

The Graduate Foundation marketing courses is a short marketing course designed specifically to help marketers revise basic marketing theory normally covered in lower level courses and prepare them for CIM entry level tests. By completing the Graduate Foundation Marketing Programme, available only from Oxford College of Marketing, marketers will be better prepared for their preferred level of study. Potentially, lower levels of study can be bypassed, saving valuable time and money.  

The Graduate Foundation Programme Intensive Weekends covering essential marketing theory will be held throughout the year. The Graduate Foundation Programme (including distance learning material) will cost £250 of which £250 will be deducted off course fees should delegates enrol on a course with Oxford College of Marketing. So, this course is essentially free to anyone who enrols with Oxford College of Marketing.

Oxford College of Marketing also gives all their students access to their Digital Course Materials as they believe that no marketing strategy is now complete without a digital component. So now anyone studying a Chartered Institute of Marketing and CAM course with the Oxford College of Marketing will be given access to the 6 digital modules of the CAM Diploma. This means that you can learn now and take the assessments with us later.

Please come along to learn more about our courses, as there will be a briefing on the new syllabus and advice for students so they can save time and money by entering on a course at the right at the level. Please check OPEN evenings dates and times at

From September 2011 Oxford College of Marketing will be using the rooms at Bournemouth University to deliver the CIM courses.
