News and media

Setting our priorities in line with the University’s strategy, we promote University news, events, research and achievements across a range of platforms and channels. We also handle all incoming media enquiries and manage access to our academic experts.

We work with colleagues across the University to share stories about our world-leading, impactful research and can arrange media training.

The team has many years of media and public affairs experience and can help prepare content for the wide range of platforms the University uses to reach key local, national and international audiences, in line with the University Strategy 2022-2027.

We prioritise requests based on:

  • whether there is potential to tell a compelling story
  • whether promoting the project will further the University’s strategic objectives

We have compiled some blog posts based on our frequently asked communications questions:

  • Publicising your research
  • Media release guide
  • Good publicity case studies

The Communications team also manages the University’s official social media channels.
