University of Westminster

Course Introduction

The course is designed to help you broaden, enhance and update your practical skills, while engaging in serious study of key issues faced by the public relations (PR) industry. It is also designed to produce better strategic managers: people who can seize the opportunities presented by rapid changes in communication rather than simply follow in the slipstream. Many aspects of the course are particularly relevant to people working in the public and voluntary sectors in the UK and overseas, but the course content also relates to those working for, or hoping to work for PR consultancies or other organisations.

Course Additional Entry

You should normally have a good 1st degree qualification equivalent to upper 2nd Class Honours from a recognised university, although professional qualifications or substantial appropriate work experience may be acceptable instead. The course relies heavily on you being able to write and present effectively in English, and you are required to have a minimum IELTS score of 7.0, or equivalent score in another recognised English language qualification.
