Whether you are an experienced practitioner, just starting out, or still thinking about a career in public relations or public affairs, we have a course to suit you.

If you just want to find out more about public relations, there is our free online Introductory Public Relations Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).

If you are already working in PR, we run courses at all levels that are accredited by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) – from the Foundation Award (taught at A-level standard) and the Advanced Certificate (taught at degree level), to the CIPR’s flagship Professional PR Diploma qualification (taught at master’s level).

The shorter CIPR Diploma courses in Public Affairs and Crisis Communication (both taught at master’s level) are great if you want to specialise.

NEW PUBLIC AFFAIRS COURSE

For those looking for a practical public affairs planning and management training programme, we will be running a new Public Affairs Management and Practice course from 2017 . This is one of three PR Academy-run courses taught at postgraduate degree level and accredited by the University of Chester (UoC). Complete this course successfully and you will receive credits towards the UoC Postgraduate Certificate in Corporate Communication via the University of Chester’s work-based learning framework.
