How to pay

We’re looking forward to welcoming you on to your chosen course. Here are some tips on paying for your studies with us

Employer paying?

Paying using a company card at the time you enrol online is the quickest and easiest way.

Alternatively, you can ask us for an invoice. We will need a purchase order before we can raise an invoice so it’s a good idea to get one from your finance people as soon as possible. You will need it when you come to enrol.

We need payment before the course starts, so act now to get everything in place.

Funding yourself?

For some courses we offer payment by instalment, or you can pay for the whole course upfront at the time of enrolment.

Remember, we need the full payment or the first instalment before the course starts.

Other things to consider

Our CIPR courses include registration and awarding body fees which we collect on behalf of the CIPR.

Make sure you check our terms and conditions for information on course cancellation etc.

Your questions answered

There may be funding available in your area, so it is always a good idea to do some research as there may be schemes that we aren’t aware of.
Its great news that your employer is investing in your development. The first thing to do is get a purchase order - you will need it when you enrol. This is really important as without it we aren't able to raise an invoice. Alternatively you can pay using a company credit or debit card at checkout - that's probably the easiest way. The second thing is to allow plenty of time! We need payment before the course starts and we know that sometimes company's payment processes can take a while. So act now to get it all sorted in plenty of time. If you need any help or advice, just give us a call and Shelley will help you.
For CIPR courses, your course fee is a combination of the PR Academy tuition fee and the CIPR awarding body and registration fee. PR Academy provides all your tuition plus an online learning centre with books and resources and marks your work. If you come to face to face classes we provide you with lots of tea and coffee and a lovely lunch. You don’t really need to buy any books as most resources are online, but you can of course purchase books if you like and we can help you to decide what to buy.
