Collobarative Marketing Projects

Project Based Assessment

In collaboration with Oxfam Ireland, our  2024 Marketing students ran a college Thrift Shop and it was a huge success. By selling pre-loved items, this initiative not only raised money for a a great cause but helped students learn about the importance of sustainability. All promotional activities were run by our innovative students including social media marketing, personal selling, sales promotion PR and poster design. A branding style guide was created for the shop and it was a real team effort with both staff and students donating stock through our collection stations in the college. This project counted towards students final grade, as part of the continuous assessment for 3 modules.

Testimonials from Our Marketing Students

Rathmines was a wonderful experience for me and what I liked best about the course was that the work load was manageable. Assignments were linked integrated across modules. I acquired IT skills, researching skills, campaign creating skills that I otherwise wouldn't have.
Khalid Bankole
I genuinely couldn’t recommend Rathmines college enough. When I didn’t get the leaving cert points that I had hoped for, I had no idea how I was going to get into university, but after meeting all the tutors and staff in Rathmines, I knew I was in safe hands! There is such a community spirit around the college, all the staff are so supportive and welcoming, and they really do prioritise the students. The digital marketing course is so comprehensive, and it has already given me so many opportunities that otherwise would never have been possible. It really did confirm just how much I want to pursue a career in the business and marketing world. If you are in doubt, take the leap and enrol with Rathmines, I promise you won’t regret it!”
