Course Details for CIM Level 4

You should have some basic marketing knowledge and at least one of the following:

  • 1+ years' experience working in marketing
  • A university degree
  • A relevant Level 3 qualification (such as the CIM Foundation Certificate)
  • International Baccalaureate equivalent to NQF Level 3 or above

If you don't have this, you could begin with the CIM Foundation Certificate, which has no entry requirements.

You'll complete a CIM diagnostic test before enrolling to ensure you have the minimum level of knowledge you need.

If English isn't your first language, we recommend that you’ve gained one of the following (or an equivalent) within the last two years:

  • IELTS Academic Module with an overall score of 6.5 or above (with a 6.0 for each component pass mark)
  • Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English grade B or above

However, neither of these are mandatory, and we're happy to review your case on an individual basis.

Your course is fully online. 

You'll cover 3 units: 

  • Applied Marketing
  • Planning Campaigns 
  • Digital Marketing Techniques 

For full details of what you’ll learn on each unit, download our CIM course guide.

You’ll be assessed through two assignments submitted online and one exam.

The Applied Marketing unit is assessed by a multiple-choice exam. You’ll sit your exam online using a proctoring service. This will record your screen and environment to ensure the exam is fair and secure.

In order to sit your proctored exam, you’ll need:

  • A desktop computer or laptop (you can’t take the exam on a Chromebook, tablet or smartphone)
  • A webcam and microphone (built-in or external)
  • Internet speed of at least 2 Mbps

The Planning Campaigns and Digital Marketing Techniques units are assessed through written assignments completed at home. They'll be based around a set realistic marketing scenario and an organisation of your choice. 

Each one will take place during one of the 3 assessment sessions set each year by CIM:

  • March/April
  • June/July
  • December

You can choose any sessions you like within your support period. Please note that CIM charge a fee for each assessment.
