Our company in a nutshell

We are website and print magazine written by and for university students in the UK. We also provide them training, guidance and opportunities to develop - such as interviewing personalities, running their own campaign on a theme (e.g. male mental health currently running!), get press passes and review art exhibitions, films, albums and much more!


 


Our Junior Section Editors and Assistant Section Editors are working with us part-time and, with our guidance, are given the chance to develop their section and their contributors.


We work with students from all over the UK to publish the best news, opinions and features. Not only this, but we've also helped our student writers to secure proper jobs in the real world, with some of our writers going on to work for The Times, MTV, The Guardian or the NME.

Corporate social responsibility

Our aim is to support new talent in all forms of media. Whether you’re a blogger, vlogger, artist, journalist or photographer, we have a programme to help you.

The future is bloody scary, but we want to alleviate some of that fear by helping you build a foundation of work outside of university and school; our programmes will give you the structure needed to help you create an impressive portfolio of work, secure placements with industry partners and basically ensure your CV stands out when graduation comes along (and it happens faster than you think).
