There are 3 types of recognition that can be applied for. The CIPR will consider applications from courses and certificates at all levels.
- Full recognition will be granted to PR/Communication subjects that can demonstrate that their content encompasses all 5 of our criteria.
- Partial recognition will be granted to PR/Communication subjects that meet 4 or less of our criteria. This can be upgraded upon meeting the final element at any time. This includes joint honours programmes.
- Module recognition - Courses in any subject with a module covering PR/Communications may apply for recognition of 1 or more modules.
There is no limit to how many full, partial or module recognitions, and combinations, that may be held by any University or institution.
