We manage the University's reputation by disseminating good news and engaging the media, policy groups and the general public to manage and mitigate reputational risk. 

This includes:

  • corporate communications support – we work with all parts of the University to raise awareness of our activities, from world-class research and major awards to events on campus and student successes. This includes issuing press releases
  • support for our academics in promoting research outputs
  • management of the main University social media channels (including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat)
  • reputation management, including crisis communications
  • internal communication – we produce the regular staff and student digital newsletters, manage the central display screens and offer advice on methods of communication
  • production of 'Contact' and 'The Bridge' magazines
  • management of honorary degree nominations

We also work closely with our marketing team to support student recruitment objectives.

Services for the Media

We provide a regular output of ground-breaking research stories and comment pieces and are quick and responsive to media enquiries. If you are a journalist, we can arrange interviews and press conferences with members of staff.
