Why Graduate Gateway?
Working with leading universities worldwide, the CIM Graduate Gateway programme gives you the opportunity to gain a CIM qualification or award alongside your marketing degree. For most qualifications, you’ll only need to take one assessment instead of the usual three.
CIM (The Chartered Institute of Marketing) is the world’s leading professional marketing body. They have been supporting, representing and developing marketers for over 100 years, and its mission is to create marketing advantage for the benefit of professionals, business and society.
- It's flexible. Graduate Gateway is tailored around your needs. You can choose which CIM modules to study and gain specialist awards to compliment your degree.
- You have FIVE years from graduating to complete additional CIM modules and would be required to register to study within three years of graduating.
- The number of exemptions for CIM modules ranges depending on the level of qualification you want to study. Contact our team to discuss your options further.
Does your university degree qualify you exemptions on CIM courses? Check this page to find out (about 120 do). If so, you could get exemptions on 2 out of 3 modules for courses like the CIM Professional Certificate in Marketing which means you would only need complete the Digital Marketing module to get the full qualification.
CIM’s Graduate Gateway programme will ensure you stand out against other candidates enabling you to:
Improve your employability
You’ll graduate with a degree and CIM marketing qualification or award that is sought after by employers worldwide.
Transfer your skills into the workplace
Recent research by the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) 2017 has found that ‘half of employers believe that graduates lack basic workplace skills’. CIM qualifications provide the professional skills employers require – meaning you’ll add value to an organisation and be able to adapt to the many roles of a marketer.
Advance your professional development
Exclusive to CIM members, our Chartered CPD Programme ensures you continually develop your skills as a competent and capable marketer.

The UK’s leading graduate employers are now offering a starting salary of £30,000 to their graduates.
