So I deferred uni last year and I’m heading there in September. It’s been 2 years since I did media at college and decided I wanted to work in marketing. I am now worried I won’t be as good as I was then. Do I need to know much before I go to uni? Or can I start fairly fresh on the subject?

Fresh will be fine. I expect the most you will need are study skills, research, problem solving , essay writing.
More people will be interested in getting to know each other and having a laugh in year 1.

Something like this. You really dont have anything to worry about.

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=2784071 might be of use to you - from what I can glean, it might be wise to brush up on your statistics and maybe some psychology (at least the components relevant to marketers).

SEMRush are offering free digital marketing courses via https://www.semrush.com/academy/, so you might want to look at them

Also look at HubSpot, who offer free courses on inbound marketing (i.e. directing traffic from other sources back to your website).

You should look at A-level Business Studies resources if you can, as the qualification also features a few units on marketing IIRC.

There is also https://learndigital.withgoogle.com/...ital-marketing

Quite a few other free online accredited digital marketing courses you can undertake, but just wanted to give you some idea of what is available.

Might also be worth looking into the CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing).

Hi Bananasplit101!

I'm a second year digital marketing student and when I started in first year, I had no prior marketing/media knowledge so don't worry! You are already at an advantage as you did media previously.

If you have any marketing related questions feel free to ask me!
