The Marketing team understands that each student is different, and will perform differently depending on how they are assessed. This is why we use a range of assessment methods for each module. They include:

•group presentations
•exams (seen and unseen)
•online multiple-choice exams
•IT-based assessment (website design, Microsoft Office work)
•written work (essays, literature reviews, reports)

You will receive plenty of personal support for assessments from your tutors, and from written guidelines, revision sessions and study support classes.

Your tutors will give you one-to-one feedback on assessments within three weeks, giving you a chance to discuss your strengths as well as the areas that may need further attention.

Want to join a fast-moving, diverse industry that's at the cutting edge of tech? Try marketing! A lot of the jobs are in London, but graduates don't just go to work in advertising agencies — all sorts of industries do their own marketing these days, and with the rise of digital and mobile technology, a lot of marketing is done in quite innovative ways using a wide range of methods. Common industries (apart from advertising and PR) include recruitment, online retail, higher education, banking and IT. A lot of jobs in this industry are handled through recruitment agencies, so if you get in touch with them early, that might give you a headstart for some of the jobs available. But be careful — unpaid working is not the norm in the marketing industry, but it is more common than in most sectors.

What about your long term prospects?
