New course - Postgraduate Certificate in Practical Science Communication

The Postgraduate Certificate in Practical Science Communication course will start this autumn. The course is based in the university's Institute for Continuing Education at Madingley Hall, Cambridge.

The courses is organised so that students can study without having to give up their present commitments. Applications are encouraged from prospective students who have some work experience and are looking for professional development, a new outlook, and enhanced practical and academic skills, including:

- scientists, looking to improve their skills and learn about the contexts for science communication
- sci comm professionals, who want a chance to reflect and broaden their experience
- anyone who wants to challenge themselves by thinking about and communicating science in new ways.

The PG Cert runs over one year with 13 days of face-to-face teaching (in Cambridge), with further support online. As well as being a recognised qualification in its own right, the PG Cert can also count as the first step towards a Masters degree. Here's the link for further information. Please get in touch with Jane Gregory directly if you are interested, or follow the instructions in the link.
