I loved doing the Digital Marketing course. I was really supported by the tutors, staff and my classmates. I received a Distinction at QQI Level 5 and I am now studying a Business Degree in USA.

Throughout the year all of the lectures were very supportive and the various modules were well structured and enjoyable. The coursework proved very manageable with constant help being offered from all the staff. The next step for me is Digital Marketing in TUD. I would strongly encourage anyone who might be interested in beginning a marketing career to consider Rathmines College.
