Many of our courses are accredited by the Institute of Data & Marketing (IDM).

IDM is Europe’s leading training and qualifications organisation for the digital, direct and data profession. It is the UK’s only government-approved institute for this activity. The IDM is a modern, forward-looking institute, alert to new and emerging applications of technology in marketing. It is dedicated to keeping the profession abreast of new techniques, new media and new practices to educate you in additional areas of marketing alongside your degree.
