Sharing information about your research with a variety of different audiences, especially non-specialists, is a valuable transferable skill. Being able to communicate clearly and effectively enables you to explain your research to our supporters, your family and friends, potential collaborators from other disciplines, and in the future committees of funding bodies.

Training and networking days
We invite our students to come to our head office to meet each other and our staff and volunteers.
Previous students have found this really useful, not only to network with each other but also to gain a greater insight into the work of Tenovus Cancer Care and develop their public engagement and communication skills.
