Gain the extra qualifications and knowledge to get ahead in the Public Relations (PR) and communications sector and discover what it takes to create award-winning campaigns.

Learning from lecturers who have come straight from industry, you’ll develop the expertise you need to communicate effectively across digital, social, broadcast and print media.

Influencer-targeting, video, social media, copywriting and more are taught alongside the strategic public relations and campaign planning skills you’ll need to succeed in the modern workplace.

We also work to live client briefs on some of our modules in areas such as content creation and campaign planning which all help to provide on the job-style experiences.

You’ll have access to facilities described by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council as among the very best in the country – our Media Centre includes professional-standard film, TV, music and news studios as well as editing suites, Mac equipment and production galleries.
