Entry requirements

You need to meet our English language requirement - a minimum of IELTS 5.5 for each of the 4 individual components (Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening). Other equivalent English language examinations will be considered.

You also need academic qualifications at the same level as UK applicants. In some countries where teaching is in English, we may accept local qualifications.

We offer pre-sessional English language courses if you do not meet these requirements.

You should have an honours degree (2:2 or above) from a UK university or equivalent. We may also offer you a place based on relevant experience or training, normally from within the work environment. All applications are considered individually.

Course content

Communication is right at the heart of our lives.

Today, communication systems and tools are increasingly complex, sophisticated and extremely powerful. However, their effectiveness depends on knowing how best to use them creatively and strategically, in a time where sustainable and transparent communication practices are becoming an utmost priority.

Our course seeks to provide a student-centred environment which is continually updated by current industry practice. We are actively committed toward creating engaging and intellectually rich learning experiences so you can leave the programme with a solid understanding of key concepts, methods, theories and practices you can immediately apply to the workplace.

Our PgDip in Advertising, Branding and Communication could provide you with a competitive edge over those without this higher level of creative and strategic research competencies that are becoming more and more relevant in the creative industries.

You may be fully equipped for rapid career ascension, being able to demonstrate critical analysis, creativity, and complex problem solving. You will be guided so you can provide evidence of originality when it comes to branding solutions, advertising campaigns and communication-related strategies or models.

At the same time your own thoughts and individual initiative will be informed through a thorough design thinking process of Discovery, Definition and Development.

The expected contact time is 1.5 days per week throughout the year – but just as in the vertiginous and vibrant advertising, branding and communication sectors, you will be working hard!
