Blog applications

Student blog opportunity

The University’s digital communications team run the ‘Kent Students’ blog for the benefit of prospective students, blogs.kent.ac.uk/kentstudents/

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 2019/20 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.
