Media Coverage

The University is mentioned in the media on an almost daily basis and the Press Office is tasked with archiving and auditing the media coverage that we receive.

We record mentions in print media and retain print-outs of coverage in the office. These are then stored in the University Archives.

Please be aware that there are copyright restrictions regarding the use of copying newspaper material. If you have any questions about this contact the University's Copyright Office.

How can I access media coverage?

Your subscription to Lexis Nexis, via the Library, will allow you to search previous years coverage in print media both locally and nationally.

Google News search can also provide you with links to the most recent online coverage.

We have produced a guide on using these two sources to find your relevant media coverage.

Records of University mentions in the media are also available.
