With the Covid restrictions becoming less stringent and more businesses reopening, we were able to get some of our favourite brands back on our radar and one of them was Cambridge University. We loved their pragmatic approach to delivering courses so we signed up for their web marketing program without even thinking twice. We had heard great things about the program so we were a little bit skeptical to what extent it would actually help us in our journey. Could a degree from a well-known institution actually help us succeed as freelance web marketers? Let’s find out.
Pragmatism At Its Best
The first thing that stuck out to us was the university’s approach to teaching. It was evident that they were practical and down-to-earth and this was exactly what we were looking for. We were more than a little skeptical about the value of a degree from a prestigious university, especially since we were applying to be a web marketer. Could a prestigious degree really help us in our quest for employment? It’s doubtful. But by combining traditional education with some real-life job experience, we were actually getting a pretty decent bargain. The course enabled us to learn the theory as well as how to apply it in the real world. Plus, it was always nice to be able to showcase a little bit of our learning in a professional setting.
A University To Keep An Eye On
Another thing that made us fall in love with the program was the university’s approach to alumni relations. We were already tracking down web designers who had previously worked with us and we were in the process of creating a list of other reputable employers in various industries. We got in touch with the university’s staff to ask about alumni relations and was given a warm welcome by the person at the front desk. It was then that we found out that the university had a thriving alumni network and that they kept in touch with their former students. We were subsequently invited to join the network and given a starter kit that included an alumni card and an email address to keep in touch with our peers. It was after submitting our application and receiving a reply from the alumni relations person that we found out that we would be accepted into the program. This was a major bonus because we would be able to tap into this network of successful professionals for advice or just to find out how they got on in the industry. It is also worth mentioning that the university actively promotes its alumni network throughout the program’s website, social media platforms, and even in the classroom. So if you are looking to network, you would have access to a huge pool of graduates who are more than willing to help you get started in your career.
It was evident that the university had a clear vision of what it wanted to achieve and that they were not afraid to put this out into the world. They had created a web marketing program that they were confident would stand out among other universities’ offerings. They were also optimistic about the future of their alumni network and saw this opportunity to provide future graduates with the tools needed to succeed in the ever-changing world of digital marketing.
The Cost Of A University Education
It’s important to keep in mind that not every university is made equal. Some universities charge an arm and a leg while others don’t even have the fees covered by the government. But as long as you are gaining access to a quality education, you can’t really put a price on it. In our case, we found the cost to be fairly minimal. It doesn’t have to be. There are plenty of private universities that charge an arm and a leg. But as long as you are gaining access to a quality education, you can’t really put a price on it.

You have to remember that even though we are comparing the cost of a university education today versus nearly a decade ago, the price of tuition has increased tremendously. Back in 2006, a degree from a prestigious university like Cambridge cost £14K a year. Today, that same degree will set you back about £25K.
So, while it’s always great to get a quality education no matter where you go, it’s worth thinking about the cost vs. benefit analysis of different university choices. Just because a university is prestigious does not mean it’s built to help you in your career. It’s always a case of pragmatism at its best. Is the education really worth it?
