About Us

The Press Office is a team of media professionals with responsibility for media relations and key aspects of internal and corporate communications.

Our Services

We write press releases, deal with media inquiries, monitor the media and organise media training for staff. We advise University staff on good practice and seek to maintain good relations and contacts with journalists.

Our internal and corporate communications role includes the production of NU Connections, the fortnightly online magazine for staff and other external readers; News Briefing, the daily media bulletin, and the University's Profile and Annual Review.

We also contribute editorial material on a regular basis to various internal and external media, such as Arches, the University's alumni magazine, and to stakeholder publications.
