Diploma in Digital Marketing

Amazing. I've recently just completed the Diploma in Digital Marketing & Social Media at The Fitzwilliam Institute, Dublin. Over the course of 3 months, I was thought all things Marketing & Social Media and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. From the super intuitive lectures to the location of the Institute, I would highly recommend this course to anybody looking to up-skill in their career or simply to just gain a wealth of knowledge in this booming industry.

Diploma in Charity, Fundraising and Sponsorship Event Management

From observing trends in the non-profit sector and wishing to keep my skills fresh and relevant for any opportunities that may arise with my own employer (disability service) or elsewhere, I noticed that public engagement, fundraising, corporate partnership, sponsorship and event management were on the up. I researched far and wide before settling with Fitzwilliam Institute's Diploma in Charity, Fundraising & Sponsorship Event Management - my personal circumstances (full time employee, mother of two small children, distance from educational institutions) together with their reputation, course structure and cost were my deciding factors. As the year went on, I found working at my own pace very beneficial as well as getting to apply my learning at work, which I had not expected and had me feeling much more confident in my job. It started turning into the best year ever - I was enjoying the variety at work - in 14 years, it was the best so far. Then a lifelong dream of writing and publishing a book for Jane Austen's bicentenary (2017) came up (which has received international acclaim), together with curating a Jane Austen/Georgian Festival in Limerick. While these are totally separate from my career - the skills I learned re event management and sponsorship have been invaluable and I have no doubt but I may not have ventured into this festival of theatre, screen, regency fashion, afternoon tea and workshops without it. In fact the book launch and the media attention I have received have required excellent project and event management skills. I highly recommend Fitzwilliam Institute - you never know where it may lead you!! - Rose Servitova - Job Coach, Author & Festival Curator

As a PR and marketing professional in the sports industry, the Fitzwilliam Institute's Digital Marketing Diploma has really helped me across the range of communications disciplines. Digital media and advertising are where I'm investing my resources, and the quality of teaching I received over the 10 week course is really beginning to bear fruit for me now in these business areas.

Diploma in Event Management

I researched Diploma Events Management Courses, this seemed the best , and it was an online course. I learnt how to put together a plan for organising an event, and how to plan this from budgetary, advertising, registration, sourcing the most cost effective for the event, disability access, registration etc to the actual event taking place and evaluation meeting after the event,  providing me with confidence and ability to undertake any event. This course benefitted me enormously with my job, as I am now the event’s organiser for my team. I would recommend the course to others. I was able to complete the course while still working, it fitted into my work schedule, as you complete the modules in your time, it is then sent to be marked and comments are made of how to improve each module, and then finally submit the final portfolio to the examiner for your final grade. I passed with a distinction grade. Natalie Wilmot, National Implementation Service

Diploma in iPad/iPhone Application Development

I pretty much do everything i love on the internet and I always wanted to create. So I joined the online diploma for iOS application development course and i was worried that i would disappoint but then it was just too cool not to talk about. I mean, I AM MAKING APPLICATIONS! I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking for a career in app development. Everything top to bottom was flawless explaining bit by bit, leading to the bigger result. I am so happy for making this choice, and I would once again recommend this. It helped me understand various perspectives of coding it taught me patience, and eventually helped me make a reputation out of it and soon hopefully become a coder. Thank you Fitzwilliam Institute Group!

Postgraduate Diploma in Public Relations with Arranged Work Experience

In 2014 I decided to go back to college after a few months of travelling and it was the best decision I ever made. After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from NUIG I wanted to specialise and looked at the PR & Event management course in Fitzwilliam Institute. The lectures were incredible in this course and got me thinking outside the box every day. Zoe Healy, one of the lectures, set us an assignment of setting up a blog and I started http://www.pureirishsugar.com  that day. Last year I won Best Beauty Blogger at the Aussie Hair Awards and now write a second blog called 'Where to next darling..?' which is all about travel. Along with having two blogs I work full time as part of the PR & Marketing team for Benefit Cosmetics Ireland. Going back to college and studying with Fitzwilliam Institute was one of the best decisions I have made and has shaped my career. Through that course I made incredible friends who still all work in the PR industry - Kate Kelly, Benefit Cosmetics Ireland.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Event Management with Public Relations gives you a good understanding of the Events industry. The most beneficial part of the course for me was planning a real life charity event. This alone gives you great insight into how much time, effort and planning goes into an event. Additionally, the 3 month work placement is a vital part as you are able to get your foot in the door and get some hands on experience. Without completing this course I may not have the job I have today!

Postgraduate Diploma in PR with Arranged Work Experience

Fitzwilliam Institute Postgraduate Diploma is a great gateway to the world of PR. The course is extremely relevant with current industry case studies and topical PR trends at the forefront of every lecture. It’s so reassuring to know that your lecturers are industry professionals, meaning that every course topic is approached with authentic knowledge of the subject and first-hand experience in mind. The standout aspect of the course for me was the arranged work placement. The placement challenges you to put your knowledge to the test whilst growing and learning in a real working environment and is paramount in developing a true understanding of the ins and outs of PR. The experience gained whilst on work experience plays such a pivotal role in your approach to the exams and perhaps even more importantly, the road to future employment. I did my placement at Elevate PR and was lucky enough to be hired once i finished my internship. I'm happily still working away at Elevate PR as an Account Executive.
