This is a popular, masters-level course from the University of the West of England, takes place Jan-March 2023 and is designed to support you to develop underpinning knowledge and skills in science communication and public engagement with research.

 The Science Communication Unit at UWE Bristol is delighted to once again invite applications for this popular part-time, online course, which will run from 16th January to 24th March 2023. 

You will develop the practical skills and theoretical understanding needed for effective, science-based public engagement, from the team behind UWE Bristol's highly regarded Science Communication postgraduate programmes. Topics include event design; understanding audiences; project planning; presentation skills; event promotion and evaluation. 

The course is designed to work flexibly alongside other commitments, with assignments that can be tailored to a current role or used to explore new possibilities. The eight units are taught over ten weeks (including two private-study weeks), with approximately ten hours study time each week. 

You are required to have a minimum degree level qualification (or equivalent), though this does not need to be in a science-based subject. On completion you will gain 30 Masters-level credits (UK) or 7.5 ECTS (EU). 

Course fees are £750.
