The British Science Association Media Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for practising scientists, clinicians and engineers to gain experience working at the heart of a media outlet.
Experience first-hand how science is reported by spending 3-6 weeks on a summer placement with a print, broadcast or online journalist such as the Guardian, The Times or BBC. You will work with them to produce well informed, newsworthy pieces about developments in science.
You'll come away better equipped to communicate your research to the media, public and your colleagues. You will develop communication skills that could help you produce concise and engaging articles and funding applications.

The scheme has been running since 1987 and reflects the British Science Association's commitment to increasing the accessibility of the sciences and providing opportunities for discussion and debate. The Media Fellowship scheme is the only one of its kind in the UK.
