Recognised university courses

A university course recognised by us is one where we have looked at the content to ensure that it covers essential public relations skills and knowledge, and checked who is teaching on it to ensure a suitable background in PR.

We also look for evidence that the course tutors are working with PR networks and employers in their region, both to keep content fresh and to offer opportunities for students to meet professionals and work on real projects as they study.
