Media guidance for UWE Bristol staff

What to do if you are contacted by the media

The UWE Media Relations team is the first port of call for all media enquiries. If you receive a call from the Media, you need to redirect the caller to the Media Relations team on +44(0)117 32 82208.

It is important that we offer the right spokespeople and experts for every enquiry. All media statements must be signed-off by the team to ensure accuracy in all cases.

What makes a good news story?

Help us to broadcast your work and successes to the world by showcasing your news via our vast range of contacts to reach a huge potential audience. Together we can help spread the word about UWE Bristol, building on our reputation by sharing and promoting the fantastic activities happening at the University.

The Media Relations team is constantly on the lookout for new and interesting stories to share with the Media. We want to hear about successful research funding bids, research reports, new collaborations with external partners, new books, key conferences, student and staff achievements, prizes, successes and activities.

Tell us about your work and your achievements, and we will help you to achieve maximum exposure via media contacts. Contact us on +44 (0)117 32 82208 or email
