Flexible learning

We offer plenty of support – there is always someone there to help. Tutors are easily contactable and love supporting learners.

We make learning as flexible as possible so you can fit it in around a busy work and home life.

You set the pace

Our ‘join anytime’ model for CIPR courses means you can start at a time that is right for you. You then have up to either a year or two years to complete your studies, or complete the course as quickly as you like.

The bespoke PR Academy Study Hub has everything you need for a great online learning experience. Teaching is a mix of video and guided reading from our carefully curated online library, some courses have live workshop sessions too. You have the opportunity to submit assignment proposals for individual feedback to make sure that you are on course for success.

With our London Accelerator option for the CIPR PR Diploma and internal communication qualifications, the course starts with two days of face-to-face workshops in London to kick start your studies. You then complete the course on our Study Hub either taking the full time available or completing it more quickly.

At PR Academy we have been teaching online since we started in 2007. We have a specially designed online learning centre - we don't just put you on Teams! Our teaching is delivered through a mix of on-demand content, guided reading, live workshop sessions (usually recorded for later playback) plus tutor support. We have an online library that we have curated specially for our courses. Some courses offer individual tutorials that can be booked and the opportunity to submit an assignment proposal for individual feedback.
Most of the courses give you a maximum time to complete - usually one or two years, so there is plenty of flexibility. If you want to extend beyond this, then it is usually the decision of the awarding body (e.g. the CIPR)
