Communication training courses

This summer UAR will be running five communications workshops. Each workshop focuses on a different area of communications: debating, media, public engagement, and online communications. These workshops will take place at The Francis Crick Institute in London.

Workshops are free for up to 4 staff from UAR member organisations per year. This means you can have 4 staff in 1 workshop OR 1 person in 4 different sessions. For 5 or more attendees you will be charged the non-member rate per person.

For non-members, each workshop costs £325 + VAT per person.

Please see below the details of each training session and a link to the registration page.
