What is a Digital Strategist
Getting in and Qualifications
There are a range of possible routes into digital strategy jobs.
- Computer Science
- Social studies subjects such as media
- Business studies
A Foundation Apprenticeship in Creative and Digital Media could be a useful first step for pupils in S5/6.
Entry requirements for courses can change. Always contact the college, university or training provider to check exactly what you’ll need.
Digital Strategists often have degrees in marketing, business or data analytics.
Many of the roles also require previous experience, so a common path is to spend a few years working in another digital role before moving on to become a Digital Strategist. One way to do this is through an apprenticeship.
