De la Cour Communications


Written By: Nic Mitchell

De la Cour Communications is led by Nic Mitchell – 2015 winner of  the CIPR’s Outstanding Higher Education Journalism Award for his in-depth look at the impact of the east-to-west European brain drain on Lithuania for BBC news online.

Providing journalistic, public relations and communication support to private and public clients including University World News, BBC and the European universities’ PR network, EUPRIO, we also blog here about trends in international higher education and research.

See our reaction to the Brexit referendum and the links in right-hand Headlines column for some of the recent events we’ve covered.

Nic’s writing style has been described as ‘reliable, accurate, independent and insightful’ by University World News co-founding editor Karen MacGregor, while BBC online education editor Sean Coughlan said it was ‘the kind of specialist journalism, with a thoughtful analysis, that people really want’.

As well as blogs and news reports on international higher education, we offer tailored market intelligence and communication support to universities and other institutions to encourage internationalisation in higher education and research.

This website also hosts the ‘Cancer-talk’ blog in which Nic recounts his fight-back against bowl cancer.
