Want to see your story brought to life on The Union’s website? Keen blogger or vlogger, or just fancy sharing your experience of uni?

Send us your ideas and help us welcome new and returning students to Manchester Met.


What are we looking for?

We’re searching for original, inspiring and entertaining content about student life. Whether it’s your top money saving or wellbeing tips, unusual hobbies, a photo blog of your favourite places in Manchester or a survival guide for the start of term, we want to hear your story.

Nobody knows the uni like you do, so who better to get new undergrads and postgrads ready for #LifeAtMMU.

We're looking for all sorts of creative content, from personal blogs and vlogs to poems, tips, reviews and recipes. Have a look at some of last year’s stories here.


What’s in it for you?

Stories will be published with your name on The Union’s website, emails and social media channels, reaching an audience of over 30,000 students. This is an amazing experience to add to your CV and will really make a difference to new and returning students.


Interested? Here’s what you need to do:

o   Write a short summary of your story idea in no more than 250 words and email it to c.clemo-hughff@mmu.ac.uk before midnight on Thursday 29 June. Include your name, student ID number, course and year of study (students graduating this summer can take part too).

o   Keep an eye on your emails – we’ll be in touch by Friday 30 June to let you know whether your idea has been shortlisted.

o   If you’ve made the shortlist, the deadline to send us your story will be midnight on Sunday 16 July.


Don't like writing but want to get involved?

No worries. Just send us your idea and we’ll get back to you.
