The Business (Public Relations) course at Queensland University of Technology  brings the real world into the classroom. You’ll learn how to build organisational relationships, write for, and liaise with, the media, and make public relations decisions across the corporate, government, agency and not-for-profit sectors.


What’s distinctive about public relations at QUT is that the course builds two career paths: public relations in-house practitioner and public relations consultant. 

In the in-house practitioner path your final year at QUT develops your skills to become a public relations manager, and to be able to manage issues, respond to public opinion and work to protect reputations for real-world organisations. 

In the public relations consultant path, your final year at QUT involves a project where you pitch an idea to a real-world client and prepare a campaign to address their needs.

You will graduate with a portfolio of work to demonstrate your skills and potential to employers.
