The course is tailor-made for scientists working on BBSRC science and follows a bespoke programme created by our media office.
The course is aimed at scientists with limited, or no experience of working with the media, although it can be valuable practice for researchers who have already dealt extensively with the media.
The course is delivered by practicing print and radio journalists and has a strong practical flavour. The course provides the opportunity to practice managing the thrills and challenges of a live radio interview without worrying about it being broadcast and will also develop your skill at writing for a general audience.
Tutors include 2 of the most likely points of contact for a scientist:
Experienced BBC science reporters
Local radio journalists
