Most public relations degree subjects are offered online and on-campus, so you can do one option – or a mix of both. A Course and Careers Adviser can help you work out a schedule that suits your lifestyle and commitments.
For more detailed information about the subjects offered through this course, send us an online enquiry and one of our expert consultants will get in touch.
Our courses are designed to accommodate change. So if you need to finish studying sooner than you’d expected and still want a qualification, or would like to accelerate a diploma into a degree, we can help you.
There are exit points within the degree. Upon completion of Level 1 subjects you will qualify for a fully accredited Diploma of Business. Upon completion of Level 2 subjects you will qualify for the Advanced Diploma of Business (Public Relations). Upon completion of level 3 you will qualify for the Bachelor of Business (Public Relations).
The classes are really interactive and while I've had an opportunity to study both online and on-campus, I prefer the face-to-face format as I feel the classroom environment provides a better learning experience for me.Jason Reed | Current Student, Bachelor of Business (Public Relations)
APM Bachelor Degrees are university-equivalent Higher Education courses - which means that the emphasis is on knowledge and skills-based approach to learning. All course lecturers are industry experts and experienced educators, while the Industry Placement Program and career development components of the degree provide invaluable work experience, helping you stand out to employers. To be eligible for a degree, you need to have completed Year 12 and gained a minimum ATAR of 63.4 (or the equivalent if you are from another country). You can also apply based on your relevant work experience or previous study.
APM Diplomas are Vocational Education (VET) courses, which are shorter in length than Bachelor Degrees and provide pathways to further study. These programs focus on skill-based approach to learning with more hours dedicated to applied, practical, hands-on learning. APM’s VET courses are based on National Training Packages, which are updated regularly in consultation with relevant industry bodies. They incorporate the same curriculum across all study locations, while internships, lecturers, and a high level of industry consultation help to give you the competitive edge over other VET graduates. To be eligible for a diploma, you need to have completed Year 10 (or the equivalent if you are from another country). You can also apply based on your relevant work experience or previous study.
This will depend on how many subjects you choose to study each trimester. Part-time and full-time options are available in this course. Many students who already work successfully manage a part-time schedule – especially if they blend campus and online study. A Course and Careers Adviser can help you work this out.
Yes – you might be eligible. If you have previously studied or worked in the field that your course relates to, you can apply to receive a course credit that can potentially shorten the length of your APM degree or diploma. Each application is assessed individually and your experience must match the learning outcomes of the subject/s covered. Read more about Recognition of Prior Work or Study.
Yes! Many of our students are from other countries. You can either study this course online or apply to study in Australia through the Australian government. Learn more about studying in Australia.
Timetables are confirmed at the beginning of every semester, based on your enrolled subjects for that period.
Australian students have until the third week of the trimester to decide if that subject is right for you. International students will need to talk to a Course and Careers Adviser about their situation.
