A professional course in the field of journalism is usually only a targeted choice and not connected to immigration strategies. Public Relations Professionals and Journalists are professional figures who have a university qualification that could be in journalism or in international relations. This type of course at a vocational level is perfect for integrating existing qualifications or refining your profile with new skills. The profession of journalist is well paid in Australia (average $81,000 a year) and studying this discipline in a foreign country is certainly perceived as a bonus as it can add diversity to a report.

The student also chooses from fields of particular interest, such as news, economics, politics, events or sport.
