Free Broadcast Interview Training for Cambridge academics, staff and students

last modified Mar 06, 2018 09:59 AM
Interviews can help audiences make sense of even the most complicated topics, cutting through the confusing complexity and making them relevant to everyday lives. The Office of External Affairs and Communications is now providing broadcast interview training to academics, staff and students at the University for free.

Training is provided by Paul Holland, Paul Seagrove and Adam Page, all of whom have experience working for national and local media in radio, television and print. While we will be asking a few challenging questions, we will be a friendly testing ground for introducing you to the world of the media, which can be a very positive experience if you engage with it correctly.

 We will talk through your chosen fields to help you to shape answers that can achieve this. Then we will ask you questions as if the interview was recorded for a radio or television broadcast. It may be a challenge but it could prove useful in helping get your work out there.


If you would like to sign up, or have any questions regarding the training, then please do not hesitation to get in touch via
