About the course

This is a broad-based diploma course that covers Public Relations, Advertising, TV Production, Journalism, Media Planning and Marketing. It gives students a wide area to explore and discover where their true passion lies, with hands-on assignments backed with theory, so that it is easier for them to choose a major for their degree or decide on a career.

Students will have the opportunity to gain experience through structured internships during this programme. We also bring the industry into the classroom, allowing students to understand and work closely with the industries they will be part of in the future. By implementing Employer Lecturer and Employer Project initiatives, we bring the gap closer between the industry and students.
