Communication

Watch graduate Veronica Watson's story

Communication skills are essential for most careers. Whether your job involves writing reports, proposals or business cases, or preparing presentations and speeches, the ability to communicate clearly and effectively is vital.

Our communication qualifications

Our communications qualifications will give you practical skills and knowledge to apply to communications and public relations roles. They include certificates, diplomas and degrees. You can also combine a major in communication with environment or psychology degrees.

Course only study options

If you have specific study or professional goals, our course only study option may be for you. With course only study, you can enrol in one course or a few, to gain the skills you need.

We have courses to teach you writing, business and organisational communication, public relations, and communication management. We also offer courses in interpersonal and intercultural communication. 

Go to the Course only information linked to below to find out more about this study option. Check the choose courses tab to see what communication courses you can study.

 

Good communication is still undervalued in New Zealand. There is often a ‘she’ll be right’ sort of attitude, but good communication is a science that is really important to success in any organisation. To have a course like the Open Polytechnic has, is perfect.
