The course combines the acquisition of essential strategic e-Marketing theory with the hands-on web design skills to actually make it effective in application.
The course is practically focused and is taught by a combination of experienced business practitioners and professional web designers familiar with the real-life commercial challenges you will face working within this fast-moving sector.
The theory element covers the principles of marketing as specifically applied to the unique characteristics of the web environment. This includes issues of e-Market segmentation, the Google phenomenon and e-Commerce law. The hands-on element includes training in everything from simple web page design to sophisticated Flash-based graphics.
Course certifications in the Open College Network (OCN) Level 4 certificates and completion of a website project for assessment.
All modules lead towards the appropriate Open College Network (OCN) Level 4 certification and for those students who wish to continue their studies the course also offers pathways to further degree level study at selected UK Universities or upgrade to a Hove College Advanced Diploma.
Before studying at Hove College I was stuck in a boring job I didn't want to be in and was unsure about my career prospects. I chose to give up my job and take the Web Design Diploma at Hove College. In terms of my career this was the best decision I ever made. Hove College helped me gain valued and industry recognised qualifications to really put my future on the right path.
Along with the career guidance and first class staff I have managed to secure a job as eBusiness analyst for Lastminute.com. The job is fantastic and for the first time I feel I have true career prospects. Thank you to all the staff at Hove College!
