About the course

Do you want to progress your career as a marketer? Would you like to study a part-time marketing course at degree level, without committing to complete a full honours degree? This module in marketing is a level 4 certificate awarded by the University of Plymouth. It will enable you to investigate the principles that underpin the marketing process and how they apply in a business. This marketing course at City College Plymouth can be completed by studying for a late afternoon session, one day a week for 17 weeks. The programme provides a broad, general overview of marketing and is a great foundation for further specialist study.

The use of the marketing mix; product, price, place and promotion, will also be investigated for different business structures and organisations.

Entry requirements

This module will be assessed by coursework only.
