The Public Relations Consultants’ Association (PRCA) has announced a universities engagement programme by naming eleven ‘elite’ universities offering PR and communication degree courses.
The eleven, in alphabetical order are: Bournemouth, Buckinghamshire New, Cardiff, De Montfort, Greenwich, King’s College London, Leeds Metropolitan, Lincoln, Manchester Metropolitan, University of the Arts and Westminster.
PRCA chief executive Francis Ingham said:
By linking up with eleven elite PR-degree awarding universities, we are creating a new quality distinction. Now we’re not saying that every single university that we have not affiliated with provides degrees without value. Far from it. But we certainly are saying that the eleven we have chosen to associate ourselves with are deeply respected by employers. We endorse them. Employers respect them. They are of guaranteed value.
