The CIPR Diploma starts in September

Home » The CIPR Diploma starts in September

nesma will start teaching the new CIPR Professional PR Diploma from September 2018 in our study centres in Newcastle, Edinburgh, Carlisle and Glasgow. This master’s level course will enable you to evaluate a wide range of PR concepts and techniques, as well as giving you the opportunity to apply these practices to your own sector of work.

The Diploma boosted my condidence to push my ideas, challenge the status quo, and provide strategic guidance at a senior level.
– Emma Duke MCIPR, Dip CIPR, Oxford University Press

The new syllabus is based on professional practice, underpinned by core PR principles, models and concepts. The three units will incorporate PR strategy and the planning process, communication and engagement, and the leadership of PR activities, with an added emphasis on the management of projects or campaigns. The course will also be underpinned by references to the ethics and code of conduct surrounding each concept.

The Diploma helped me to take a more strategic approach. I was able to take on a regional role as a result, and also inspired colleagues at the Bristish Foregign Office to collectively improve comms best practice.
– Mark Logan MCIPR, Dip CIPR, formerly British Consulate General Shanghai

This qualification is the perfect choice for you, if you’re already an experienced PR professional, if you’re ready to progress towards a senior management position or if you have studied a previous CIPR qualification. On successful completion of the three units, students are awarded a CIPR Professional PR Diploma, which depending on the time of enrolment, could be within as little as 10 – 12 months.

The Diploma consolidated my approach to communicatons strategy at a time when my career really benefited. I now apply what I learnt in a new gobal role.

After the CIPR Diploma I assumed a much broader role in a new organisation where I’m putting my learning to good use.
