Professional qualifications

Whether you're starting out in PR or are managing a team and want to work more strategically, take your career to the next level with CIPR qualifications.

Five reasons to become CIPR qualified 



1 Secure the job and the salary you want.

A CIPR qualification speaks volumes to employers. Our recently published State of the Profession research shows that those with professional qualifications receive higher salaries than their non-qualified counterparts.

 2 Earn global recognition and respect.

A CIPR qualification isn’t just the UK benchmark when it comes to professional development in public relations – there’s a global community of #CIPRQualified professionals. In 2018 we awarded results to our largest ever number of international students based in 20 countries worldwide. 

3 Transform your work.

Your qualification will have a positive impact on your work from day one. You’ll be able to immediately apply your learning to everyday tasks and challenges, bringing a broader perspective and new ideas.

4 Be confident in your capabilities.

Your deepened understanding will boost your confidence - the knowledge you gain will allow you to back up your decisions and grab opportunities to move up.

5 Study flexibly around work and home.

Our qualifications are taught flexibly so you can be confident your studies will fit around your busy lifestyle. Choose weekend classes or online learning and access a wealth of resources in our Study Hub.
