22 September 2023
Find out why our graduates chose to study an online master’s in Marketing and Digital Communications.
From our supportive community to the flexibility of online study, graduates Pamela Taylor and Ben Miller explain why they chose to study an online master’s in Marketing and Digital Communications with Falmouth University.
Why did you choose to study online with Falmouth?
Pamela: I chose Falmouth because I’m a mature student; I work and I have two children. Studying online seemed like the more practical option for me and I wanted to study marketing as it ties in with my job. The only master’s I could find that really suited what I wanted to do happened to be in Falmouth.
Ben: I chose Falmouth because I’d been looking around a lot of different online marketing communications courses and it seemed to have the best balance of practical skills, creativity, and cost. And Falmouth is an institution that speaks for itself!
What was the highlight of your studies?
Pamela: Marketing is already my career and I am very, very passionate about it. I loved doing the live seminars that we did together online once a week. There was a lot of engagement with all the other students on the course, and it was a really enjoyable experience
Ben: The highlight of my studies was how committed the academics and the support staff were. You could be forgiven for making an assumption that by doing an online course you’re not going to get the same support as an on-campus student, but they were absolutely magnificent throughout the whole thing.
What advice would you give to future students?
Ben: Take it seriously, but have fun with it!
