How to get started

Before Enrolment

To help you find a starting point for your studies, we have organized our resources into six separate schools all of which are fully accessible on our visitor Campus.  Simply roll your cursor over the name of each school and you will have immediate access to information about the learning opportunities available within that school.  If you are undecided about precisely which school to enrol with, we encourage you to focus on the General Management School initially as all subjects can be studied at an introductory level with this school.  You can also study to higher levels, for example to qualify as a Chartered Manager or Chartered Fellow, through this school.  However, if you are interested in more focused studies in a particular area, our other five schools will provide this for you.  You can still use these programmes as part of your studies for Chartered Manager/Fellow if that is your goal.

Remember you can start your studies with Marshall Gurney Institute for as little as £150 for a four month licence which gives you unrestricted access to all our learning resources.  You can also enrol for a full 12 months for £300 or upgrade your four month licence to 12 months for a further £150.

After Enrolment

Once you have enrolled with Marshall Gurney Institute, you have access to some powerful tools to help you identify a starting point for your learning.

Again you can browse each of the six schools to look at the greater detail provided on studying their learning programmes and if one of these meets your needs, you can start immediately or contact the school directly to request access to the further resources provided.

Alternatively, you can also use one of the following processes to identify a specific starting point that matches your needs:
