Marketing and Communications

Press and Public Relations

The role of the Press and Public Relations team is to promote and enhance the profile and reputation of the University regionally, nationally and internationally. We do this through publicising the University’s research and expertise, achievements and successes to a range of media and networks, while also responding to direct enquires from the press.

The Press Office is staffed by experienced journalists and communications professionals who proactively provide advice and guidance to staff when dealing with the media. We run an on-going media training programme and are keen to hear from staff whose work might have a news angle, ideally ahead of publication.

We run an inter-active news site, UoP News, which allows readers to view up-to-date news content and videos, post comments, ask questions and share content.

The team has an important role in protecting the reputation of the University and carries the responsibility of issuing official statements to the media.

Additionally, we manage and deliver a programme of corporate, annual and one off external-facing events, as well as a programme of collaborative and community-focussed events.
