BCU Press Team

We tell the media about what is happening at the University, providing a multi-service facility for journalists, including traditional press releases, audio soundbites, video footage and a news feed via Twitter.

We do this by:

  • Issuing news releases, comment pieces and photographs to media outlets
  • Publishing news releases on our website and on Twitter
  • Providing an experts service and finding staff who can comment on their subject areas
  • Providing broadcast quality audio and video
  • Providing images of the University and University events for publication
  • Offering opportunities for filming on campus
