PhD students: Expand your public engagement knowledge with the Engagement Masterclasses!

The Engagement Masterclasses are now available for all PhD students! Sign-up now to learn more about the world of public engagement and discover the right tools to engage your audience effectively.

The Societal Engagement team offer eight masterclasses to cater for a range of engagement experience:

  • Core engagement masterclass – for staff members with little or no prior experience of public engagement looking to expand their understanding and get involved.
  • Six optional masterclasses – for staff to build on the context and background of the core masterclasses to broaden their skills and put their learnings into practice.

You should complete the core masterclass before joining the optional masterclasses (sessions 3-6).

If you have participated in some engagement training already (e.g. external training, Imperial Festival training, Engagement Academy) it may not be necessary to complete the core masterclass. Please contact the public engagement team to discuss your needs/interests. Take a look at what’s available.
