The Business and Public Relations degree will prepare you for a career in a public relations role within corporate communications, internal communications, event management or areas relating to online public relations, such as search engine optimisation and social media strategy development.
The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Business and Public Relations honours degree programme yet.
Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).
This Chartered Institute of Public Relations-approved degree gives you an appreciation of traditional business functions such as finance, organisational behaviour, marketing, human resources, management and corporate responsibility, combined with the study of the tactics, tools and strategies of PR. Practitioners deliver sessions and guest lectures so you have the opportunity to learn about real issues and to make the link between theory and practice which you can apply if you choose to take up the option of a sandwich placement year.
