Information for staff

Publicising your work has many benefits, including enhancing the reputation of your department and the University.

The Media team offers guidance on all aspects of liaising with the media – from the production of press releases to tips on giving successful interviews.

You can help us to ensure timely and efficient media coverage by:

  • responding to enquiries as speedily as your schedule allows;
  • informing the Media team if a journalist contacts you directly, allowing them to keep track of the University's media profile;
  • seeking your Head of Department's consent before agreeing any media visits to University premises;
  • accompanying any programme makers and reporters throughout their visit to the University.
