Public engagement opportunities

The University supports and hosts public engagement activities which research staff and students can take a part in.

Researchers and students

There are engagement opportunities throughout the year for every research interest, time commitment, and skill set. Flagship projects allow you to gain experience at a level that suits you in design, delivery and evaluation of public engagement activity.

For details on support for researchers developing and delivering public engagement activities, including training in public engagement, please visit the support pages.

The following are upcoming events and calls for participation. For new opportunities, please follow the public engagement with research (PER) team on Facebook and Twitter.
