Information for the media

The Communications team is the main point of contact for media organisations wishing to find out more about how the work of the University is making lives better across the globe.

Our team issues news releases on ground-breaking research, major projects, partnership initiatives and topical issues using a range of media, social media and multi-media channels.

As well as managing all media enquiries on behalf of the University we can put you in touch with experts for comments, organise interviews, and supply images, audio and video clips.

If you are a journalist and would like to arrange a visit to the University our team will be happy to arrange this. We also arrange and oversee filming for news organisations on campus.

With a BBC radio studio on site, with 24 hour access, it is easy for our experts to react to fast moving topical events and they are often asked to do so.

We can also supply high quality audio files to news organisations who need quick comment from academic experts on current news stories.

To get in touch with the team email communications@stir.ac.uk or call 01786 466687.

In the event of an urgent media enquiry or emergency outside office hours please call 01786 473171 and ask to be put in touch with a Duty Communications Officer.
