Our range of CIPR qualifications covers public relations, internal communications, crisis communication and public affairs. Whether you are just starting out or looking to take the next step in your career, there is a qualification to suit you. You can study online or at face to face classes in central London.
The CIPR Foundation in Public Relations is taught at A-level and is over about eight weeks, the CIPR Advanced Certificate in Public Relations at degree level over about ten months and the CIPR Professional PR Diploma at Masters level also over about ten months.
The PR Diploma is the CIPR’s flagship qualification. It is a ten-month course covering a broad range of theory and practice. While the CIPR Internal Communication Diploma, Public Affairs Diploma and Crisis Communication Diploma are also taught at Masters level, they are shorter courses. Either of the short diplomas can be substituted for the final module of the 10-month PR Diploma, making it that bit easier to obtain two qualifications.
The Advanced Certificate is a great choice of course if you want to gain a deeper understanding of PR and to develop your strategic skills. While the CIPR Internal Communication Certificate is also taught at degree level, it is a shorter course and can be substituted for the final module of the 10-month Advanced Certificate.
