The course will provide you with the skills to communicate clearly and with impact using a range of media channels.

Delivered by media specialists, with contributions from successful women scientists and a focus on science communications, you will gain an overview of how the media works and learn how to maximise the impact of your research.

You will undertake a mock radio interview, create an engaging press release, and hone your existing skills to provide commentary on a range of science stories.

Participants will be asked to prepare in advance a short elevator pitch; and a written paragraph (in the style of a press release) detailing a recent project.

The course will take place on Wednesday 4 July, 9am – 5pm in The Old Schools building on Trinity Lane.

Twelve places are available, and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
