Why study public relations with us? Public relations practitioners are the voice of organisations and corporations. They communicate between media, customers, suppliers, community, government, industry, employees and other groups that interact with the organisation they work for.

Our Bachelor of Arts (Public Relations) degree will give you important industry skills, teaching you how to create public awareness campaigns and improve organisation, public and media relations.

Our lecturers are active in the industry and have connections for referrals and internships. We also have a Public Relations Advisory Committee of senior practitioners who are always keen to provide students advice and help them gain internships.
