Digital Marketing (Level 3 UAL Extended Diploma) — Full-time

Course outline

This course is perfect if you’re looking for a career in the exciting and fast-moving world of digital marketing.

You’ll learn how to harness the power of social media in a digital world. Modern marketers don’t just share content – they create it. You’ll develop marketing content using industry-standard software like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and then take it to key platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to launch real world campaigns. Alongside this, you’ll learn the essential marketing principles and techniques.

You can expect to learn about digital marketing metrics and analytics, and how they can be combined with creative elements to market effectively to customers. This will allow you to gain more in-depth knowledge of specific digital marketing techniques. You will complete 90 credits in Year 1 and gain a standalone qualification. On successful completion of this, you will progress into Year 2 to gain the full Extended Diploma.

You can view the fantastic works of our Media, Photography & Performance students on our showcase website run by our media faculty team.
