Why study this course?

London Metropolitan University has been successfully delivering CIM qualifications for over 25 years. Its Moorgate campus is based in the heart of the City of London, a convenient location for many of our students.

Our experts offer valuable feedback and advice to enable students to maximise their time on the course.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

To gain entry onto the Certificate in Professional Marketing one or more of the following is required:

  • CIM Level 3 Introductory Certificate in Marketing qualification.
  • Any relevant Level 3 qualification.
  • Any UK degree or international equivalent.

We also accept students on both courses who have experience in professional practice.

To gain the full qualification you are required to complete three of the four following modules:

  • Marketing (Mandatory)
  • Integrated Communications (Mandatory)
  • Customer Experience (Elective)
  • Digital Marketing (Elective)

All classes take place at our new refurbished Moorgate campus with evening classes running from 6pm - 9pm and can be taken as a full course or as a self-contained award for each module.

Students who have previously completed ‘Marketing Essentials and Assessing the Marketing Environment’ after 2008 as part of the previous Certificate will be exempt from the new ‘Marketing’ module.

The CIM Certificate in Professional Marketing will help to develop and enhance your knowledge and prospects within your current company and marketing career. This qualification gives you the practical skills and knowledge to devise and execute tactical marketing activities and gain marketing credibility.

On completion of this course you may wish to progress further with your CIM studies by undertaking the CIM Diploma in Professional Marketing.

When you enrol for a minimum of two modules, each module is charged at £650 each. Alternatively if you enrol for just one module it will be charged at £700. Please note additional fees are payable direct to the CIM for their studying membership and for each assessment undertaken.

Typically students complete this course in twelve to eighteen months but the new modular pathway qualification has been structured to reflect the need for a flexible approach. Therefore each module can also be taken as a self-contained award which can be built up to attain the full certificate.
