Course development

This course is available for purchase from now and until 31 July 2021, and examinations are offered until June 2023.

If you’re thinking about starting today you’ll study our International Marketing course, as outlined here.

If you’re looking to begin studying from 2020, you’ll be able to choose a new version of the course, redeveloped for study through our new virtual learning environment. 

Both courses are equivalent and transferrable, so your choice today won’t affect your award.

Why change? We’re in the process of moving to a new learning platform which will give you more interactive learning opportunities and newly designed courses.
