  • Providing advice and putting media in touch with our academic and research experts and other key University spokespeople.
  • Publicising information on major developments at the University and co-ordinating media coverage for our events.
  • Managing media enquiries about the University and fostering relationships to help journalists with background information, potential ideas and articles/items they are working on.
