Here at APU, we train our students to be confident and communicative through practical learning experiences such as industry visits, campaign planning and tour planning that are incorporated within the syllabus.

Media & Communication Studies explore on getting the right messages across, be it mass communications or corporate communications. You will be trained under an internationalised & diverse environment on the concepts & applications of communication techniques, as well as strategies that can shape you into competent communications professionals.

International Relations is an exciting and important discipline of study. It addresses key issues associated with the way countries of the world co-exist in the face of rapid change. We are seeing huge technological changes that affect conflicts, communications, trade and culture. There is a mass movement of people and a growing sophistication of global economic networks, while the world is politically and territorially divided into states there are great inequalities between them. Through the international learning experience at APU, students will become more prepared to become global leaders by interacting with students who come from different cultural backgrounds, as we promote cultural sensitivity and cultural exchange within our multinational students' community.
