Jonathan Routledge

I am currently studying a MA degree in Public Relations and strategic communications at Leeds Beckett University. Previously I studied a Bachelor of Arts Journalism degree at the University of Bedfordshire, attaining a 2:1 classification.

I have learned many valuable throughout the process of these degrees, mainly writing skills, covering a broad range of styles and interview skills, in both written and radio format, during my undergraduate degree.

The PR Masters is teaching me all the necessary skills to start a career in the sector. The course thus far has allowed me to practice presentations allowing me to become a confident presenter through practical campaigns pitching to professionals, as well as covering the writing skills needed and the theory behind the subject.

Through work placements over the next few months, I am hoping to gain first hand experience of working in PR, teaching me how to approach my career when the course concludes in September.
