Who should do this course?

This course is designed for anyone wanting a high level grasp of digital marketing. While it is tailor-made for matric-leavers, the course is also suited to postgraduate marketing or Business Administration students wanting specialist skills to build a career in digital marketing.


How long does the course take?

The course is a year long (from February to November) and is structured into two semesters separated by a mid-year vacation.

The time needed to complete the course is roughly 3 – 5 hours per day (week days only). This includes watching video material, online forum participation, practical application and assignments.

What career roles or opportunities will this course equip me for?

After completing this course, it’s advised you apply for a 6 month internship with a local agency (Webgrowth can help connect learners with digital agencies and/or recruiters).

Each semester we will host a meetup in Cape Town and Johannesburg where you will be able to meet your fellow students, and we’ll be able to put some names to faces. We have created a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application, which prepares our learners for real world digital agency tasks, making them job-ready.

What our students are saying

I thoroughly enjoyed the advanced Web Analytics module. The course taught me how to use Google Analytics data to make better business decisions for clients. It also taught me how to take data and make it actionable. I found that the Webgrowth one-on-one support added another dimension to online learning.

Onboarding new account managers was made much simpler thanks to the integrated approach that the Foundations course offers. Our technical staff who completed the advanced courses also learnt practical skills we could never have taught in-house. We look forward to the ongoing support Webgrowth has to offer our staff.

The Foundations course covered not only the basics of digital marketing but so much more. I feel I have obtained a series of actionable principles and techniques that can be applied immediately. I look forward to refining and building on these skills soon as I work through the advanced course.
