First year

You'll begin your studies with induction. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the on-campus induction planned for the start of the programme in September 2020 will now be delivered entirely online, and we are working towards scheduling an on-campus experience in the first year when it is safe to do so, and all students can attend. 

You will then begin studying six core modules, which provide you with strategic marketing foundations. From the summer term of the first year, you will begin to study a selection of your six electives.

On-campus dates for 2020 entry: TBC

Second year

In the first term of the second year, you will complete the remaining three core modules. You will also study the remainder of your electives through to the spring term. You will then come to campus again to take part in academic sessions linked to your modules, and the programme culminates in a work-based summative project.

On-campus dates for 2020 entry: 25 - 29 April 2022
