The Advertising and Marketing Communications programme offered by the Durham College prepares you with the knowledge, skills and experience for an exciting career in the advertising industry. 


If you want to create and evaluate successful advertising and promotional campaigns, the Advertising and Marketing Communications programme offered by the Durham College is for you. We live in an age of digital disruption. In order for advertisers to compete for ‘screen-time’ they must develop engaging content with the power to connect with consumers. As marketers work to increase their share of consumer attention, they need to know how people are spending their time across multiple devices and platforms. When you understand consumer markets and behaviour, you can create great advertising.

You can work at an agency, research or production firm, and we will help you make the right choice. You get experience as an account manager and production artist for campus media, and have the opportunity to work at the college advertising agency.
