The Science Communication Unit (SCU) at UWE Bristol is recognised for internationally leading research, creative approaches to practice and outstanding teaching.

SCU research seeks to bring science and society closer together, and as such we have a core interest in developing research which is societally-relevant and developed in conjunction with those who practice science communication. Our portfolio of activities is extensive, including innovative approaches to engaging diverse publics with science.

We are also committed to training would-be science communicators via our Masters programme, which focuses on developing science communication practitioners with outstanding practical skills that are underpinned by science communication theory. For those wishing to develop specific skills, we offer dedicated professional development courses and workshops.
