The BA Media Fellowships are intended to create a greater awareness and understanding of the workings of the media among practising scientists, social scientists and engineers.
The fellowships provide placements working with a national press, broadcast or internet journalist.
During placements of between 3 and 8 weeks fellows learn to work within the conditions and constraints of the media to produce accurate and well informed pieces about developments in science.
After their placements fellows are better equipped to communicate their research and expertise to the public and their colleagues.
The Media Fellowships reflect the BA's commitment to work with the media to build understanding between science and society.
