I have recently been accepted onto a Bachelor of Commerce Degree programme in Curtin University (Western Australia). The one-year Digital Marketing course in OFI helped me confirm that this career pathway was right for me. I really enjoyed studying Marketing, Social Media and Advertising and applying creative, original approaches to promote businesses/events. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in OFI and I would definitely recommend the Digital Marketing programme to others.
