CIPR Professional PR Diploma

Entry requirements

This course is taught at postgraduate level and aimed at experienced public relations practitioners who want to develop their expertise in digital communications management. A first degree is preferred, but candidates with extensive experience are encouraged to apply. All applicants should satisfy our University English language requirements.

Selection Criteria

We may use selection criteria based on your personal attributes; experience and/or commitment to the area of study. This information will be derived from your personal statement and reference and will only be used if you have met the general entry requirements.

IELTS

IELTS 6.0 with no skills below 5.5, or an equivalent qualification. The University provides excellent support for any applicant who may be required to undertake additional English language courses.

Mature Applicants 2:

Our university welcomes applications from mature applicants who demonstrate academic potential. If you have recent relevant work experience and/or professional qualifications, we may be able to consider you for entry through our ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ policy. Please ensure that you list both your qualifications and relevant work experience in your application.

All applicants should meet our standard entry requirements of GCSE grade C in English language and, where specified, Maths. Alternative qualifications suck as functional skills are accepted in lieu of GCSEs for most courses.
