Eastern promise for PR students

Course:  BA(Hons) Public Relations

Five first year UCLan Public Relations students will be visiting Singapore for a week-long industry field trip in May 2013 which is being subsidised by the International Travel Bursary Fund.

The five students will join BA(Hons) Public Relations course leader Chris Shaw for a series of activities organised by Lewis PR’s Asia division. The students will meet journalists and PR practitioners, attend briefings on social media and put together their own personal development plans.

Chris Shaw said: “UCLan PR alumnus Suelyn Howe, who is a senior account manager at Lewis PR, is keen to work with us to promote employability in Singapore. This is an excellent opportunity for us all to gain an insight into how PR operates in this important region.”
