Course summary

The Postgraduate Certificate in Practical Science Communication is designed to support and develop the skills of scientists and other technical professionals who wish to communicate effectively with the wider public, as well as with other organisations within their community such as funders, learned societies, investors and businesses.

Aims of the programme

The programme aims to: provide students with theoretical, academic and practical tools to support the knowledge and understanding they will need to become an effective and engaging communicator. The programme will help students to enhance the ethical and critical awareness they will need to identify the importance, relevance, and risks of science communication from a professional perspective. enable students to make value-based judgements combining discipline-specific factors, academic theory, and practical considerations, to ensure they are well equipped to develop and deliver science communication that is culturally sensitive and appropriate to particular audiences; develop individual science communicators’ ability to reflect critically on their own and others’ work, in the context of not only audience needs but also those of hosts, funders and local policy.
