Welcome to the News Centre
Our multi-award winning News Centre provides a central source for media enquiries, both proactively by contacting journalists about our latest news and research and also reactively by providing expert commentators on a daily basis.
From our communications work surrounding: the discovery of Richard III, which was described by The Guardian as ‘one of the most successful UK university media operations ever’; the discovery of DNA fingerprinting recently dramatised in the ITV series Code of a Killer starring renowned actors John Simm and David Threlfall; and the development of the landing spacecraft Beagle 2 and its rediscovery on Mars in 2015, we have an international reputation for generating exciting news content which is repurposed across the University.
We are responsible for:
|• external communications||• corporate news items|
|• press releases||• news videos|
|• news podcasts||• @UoLNewsCentre Twitter account|
|• media training||• work experience|
|• partnership with The Conversation platform||• expert commentary and opinion (Think: Leicester)|
