How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Communications course?

Confident

While many fear at the thought of giving a speech in front of a crowd, you feel right at home doing it. You’ve never been one to shy away from the limelight, instead, you embrace it.

Creative

You’ll need to be able to come up with new and innovative ways to do certain tasks, and you can’t do that without being creative.

Good communicator

You’ll need to be able to make sure you get a short message across, to a large number of people, while conveying quite a bit of information, all at the exact same time.

Open to criticism

This is not an industry for people who cannot take criticism. Not every idea you have is going to be well-received. Your work will pass in front of many eyes before the ad campaign is released and will undergo many changes. You may have written your best copy yet, but you're asked to start over and do it again. You must handle criticism very well. Don't take offense to being asked for changes to your work
