Media training

About the course

Presenting your research through the media is an effective and efficient way to communicate with large audiences. This course provides an ideal introduction to the media and how to use it to promote your science. The course is tailor-made for researchers working on BBSRC science.

The one day course is suitable for researchers with limited, or no experience of working with the media and can be a valuable refresher for researchers with previous media experience.

The course is delivered by former journalists and has a strong practical element. The course provides the opportunity to practice managing the thrills and challenges of a live radio interview without worrying about it being broadcast and will also develop skills in writing for the media.
