Public Relations with Foundation Year

We were one of the first UK universities to offer a course tailored to the needs of the public relations industry, and as such we have finely tuned the programme to give our students the most practical benefits. The many hands-on elements of the course and our deep-seated links to real PR agencies will ensure that you have several opportunities to work on genuine projects, get work placements and even secure full-time work. This Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) approved course includes core business subjects modelled around real-life activities and is taught in our new facilities, the Business Pods, which emulate a modern office. You will learn how to run press conferences, handle interviews, perfect your presentation skills and pitch to industry clients. In your final year, you will actually be involved on a real brief and present your work to senior management in a PR agency. By putting you in direct contact with industry professionals, we will help you to make the transition from a student into the working world. The skills you learn will be applied to genuine client briefs and you will have the opportunity to get your talent recognised by key employers even as you study.
