Student blog opportunity

The University’s digital communications team run the ‘Kent Students’ blog for the benefit of prospective students,

The idea is that current Kent students write about aspects of student, extra-curricular or academic life to really give prospective students an insight into life here at the University. The blog is a fantastic way to hone your writings skills, write about your experiences of being a student at Kent and offer invaluable insights for the benefit of others thinking of studying here.

If you are interested in becoming a student blogger, please submit an example of your writing below, this should take the form of a 250 word example blog post on an aspect of Kent life you think would be interesting to a prospective student, perhaps an event you attended on campus, what you particularly like about your degree, a club or society event or trip you made with friends, but the choice is yours.

Please note you must be a student at the University beginning the 2021/22 academic year, undergraduate and postgraduates are all welcome.

  • The blog will be linked to from every course page on the Kent website – giving it large exposure.
  • Bloggers will earn ‘Employability Points’ for blogging.
  • The commitment would be a minimum of two blog posts per month, though more are encouraged!
  • An ideal way to improve your writing skills and boost your CV.

***Are you a vlogger? If so we'd be interested in seeing your work, please see more information below.***
