Corporate Communications

Publicising your activities

Whether you are hoping to gain press coverage for your research findings or a book launch, or wish to publicise an event to the University's staff, the Press Office can assist you.

Gaining press coverage


The Press Office can help gain press coverage for research activities, events or a book launch. We can do this in several ways depending what is appropriate. We can issue a press release, arrange a photocall or make more informal approaches for interviews or opinion pieces. We also suggest members of staff as ‘expert commentators’ for topical events.

Please give us as much notice as possible as we have to work to external deadlines and lead-in times. We will write and issue the press release and you will sign off the content before it goes out. If you are working with the Press Office to gain press coverage, you will need to make sure we can contact you even if you are off campus to enable us to respond to media queries.
