- Our typical offer is:
- We will consider applicants with professional and vocational experience.
- If you are suitably qualified, we will invite you to an interview to assess whether this is the right course for you.
- We may ask you to undertake a short course that covers essential skills and knowledge, before you join the main Masters course.
- We also require three passes at GCSE grade C or above, which must include Mathematics and English Language, or an equivalent qualification, for example; a minimum of Level 2 Key Skills in Communication and Application of Number. If you have studied for a new GCSE for which you will be awarded a numerical grade then you will need to achieve a grade 4 or above.
If English is not your first language, you should have an IELTS (or equivalent) score of at least 7.0
Postgraduates are highly employable and, on average, earn more than individuals whose highest qualification is an undergraduate degree. On completing this course you will be equipped for roles throughout the PR and communications industries.
Recent Sunderland graduates have set up their own agencies or are now working in PR consultancies, as well as in the PR departments of organisations such as Giorgio Armani, the Environment Agency, Durham Cricket Board, Tyne and Wear Sports and AA Press Office.
During the course we encourage you to gain industry experience which will enhance your skills, build up a valuable network of contacts and boost your employability.
A Masters degree will also enhance career opportunities within Higher Education and prepare you for further postgraduate studies.
