CIM Courses are designed to challenge the student and are rightly difficult to pass. We have excellent pass rates at Intensive Marketing. If you don't believe us then here's what our previous students say...
Rowan Martin: Marketing Manager EMEA,
InterContinental Hotels Group
"Sue and Paul taught me when I studied for the Professional Diploma in Marketing and I never found them anything but supportive and constructive. I found that their business experience meant that they could apply the theory within the context of a present day business example. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, although it was hard work – as you would expect of a Chartered Professional qualification. I achieved the Best Student for the Thames Valley Branch of CIM for my year."
John Wyer – Product Manager, Microsoft EMEA
"If you are looking for a refreshing approach to learning, where you
just have that feeling you’ll pass your exams, then I can’t
recommend Intensive Marketing enough. I found the teaching style to
be extremely informative but also fun, Paul has an amazing ability
in the way he delivers the course material whilst highlighting how
the concepts and methods are used in real world situations. I also
enjoyed working in a small group where you can feed off each other’s
ideas and thoughts, this being positively encouraged by Paul and
enhancing the learning experience even further.
Every time I left the Arlington Arts venue I was buzzing with creative thoughts and energy, just waiting to be put into practice. And it's because of this that I fully recommend Intensive Marketing to anyone looking to gain a CIM qualification."
Ryan Rubertazzi : Product Manager, Vodafone
"I completed the Professional Diploma with Intensive Marketing and
while the course was by no means easy with the help and support
offered by both Paul and Sue either online through Moodle or in
person during one of the regular study sessions meant the work could
be broken into manageable sections.
A really important factor to me was that the study sessions were held on a Saturday making it easier for me to manage coursework along with my work commitments. Overall I’m really glad I decided to complete this qualification through Intensive Marketing as I felt the quality of teaching, individual attention and overall support provided could not have been bettered anywhere else."
Paula Boyden: Corporate Marketing and Business Development Project Manager - Intervet / Schering-Plough Animal Health
"As someone with a science background, I struggled with the concept approach of marketing. However, with Paul and Sue's guidance my knowledge and understanding has fallen into place.
For me this was an ideal method of studying to achieve my goal and balance my commitments; directed reading leading into the Saturday sessions which consolidated knowledge, brought a practical edge to the subject and were an ideal discussion forum.
Arlington Arts Centre is easy to get to from all directions and provides a relaxed learning environment."
John Twining: Sales and Marketing Director, One Bite
"Paul and Sue's tutorials were always alive with active real world
that were clear and packed with a passion and enthusiasm for marketing. I always felt I had learnt something highly valuable, totally appropriate to passing the CIM modules and it was fun, too. Highly effective method of teaching that is packed with passion and desire to drive every student to pass the course."
Martyn Hagger : Product Manager, ALK-Abello
"I studied with Intensive Marketing during 2007/2008 and was
delighted to pass the Professional Postgraduate Diploma in
Marketing. I found the support and insight of all three tutors, Sue,
Debbie and Paul to be excellent. Not only did they have a great
understanding of marketing principles but they were able to apply
this in not only a practical sense but most importantly in a very
The Professional Postgraduate Diploma was a very challenging qualification but with the level of support, tuition and on line resources made available I found the course to be not only very worthwhile, but also good fun as well.
I would highly recommend Intensive Marketing to anyone who wishes to further their marketing career or indeed break into marketing."
