They aren't heavily academic. We still discuss theory because that’s what makes us better practitioners, but we show how to apply it in practice. We call it applied learning. (CIPR qualifications have been refreshed in recent years so they are now much more about applying theory to practice.)
It isn’t essential, for example you can study while on a career break. For some of the higher level courses you will need some experience. Some of the assignments are designed to be based on your work but if you aren’t currently employed a tutor can help you with other options.
It varies according to the course and the stage you are at. As a very general guide, think about allowing between two and four hours a week, but this can be more when you are doing an assignment.
All our courses provide unlimited tutor support. We want to support you every step of the way.
Yes, most of our students are working full time and many have family commitments too. While the courses are demanding – they wouldn’t be of value if they weren’t – the pace of learning and the flexible options make it possible.
