Hear from our Students- 

’Having always wanted to work in the ad industry, the Postgraduate Diploma in Advertising and Digital Communications was a perfect fit. The strength of the lecturers and course content attracted me from the start, and it did not disappoint. Having the opportunity to work with a dynamic group of people, from many different backgrounds, was both a fantastic learning curve and great preparation for agency life. Pitch night was the highlight of the year, and although it was hard work, it was extremely rewarding. This programme has given me the ability to move from an in-house Marketing Executive, to a Senior Account Executive in a creative agency, and I feel it was the skills developed and connections made through this programme, that facilitated this move.'

I would recommend this course for anyone who wants to make a move into the advertising industry from another area, especially those who cannot commit to a full-time course. Having previously completed an online course in advertising and PR, I felt I needed to further my knowledge of the industry and this course was exactly what I was hoping for. For me, the most important consideration was that the lecturers were industry people with plenty of experience, which they were. I have worked in the television industry for over ten years and wanted to upskill in the area of digital /online content advertising in particular, and this course has certainly allowed me to do that.
