We recently revamped our weekly email newsletter, where we share the latest student news, opportunities, and giveaways. We will turn the email newsletter into a blog post each week for those people who prefer blog content.
Virtual Freshers Festival, Giveaways, and Caterpillars
Welcome back to our weekly student newsletter, a chance to stay up to date with the latest student news, discounts, opportunities, and memes.
This week we have an exciting announcement: Virtual Freshers Festival is coming this September!
What is Virtual Freshers? It is just like any other Freshers Festival event, but online! There will be freebies, video content, games, networking, job opportunities, and much more.
News & Opportunities
4th July Reopenings
Freedom! (sort of)… As many of you will know, this Saturday sees a significant change in the Covid-19 restrictions, with restaurants, bars, and cinemas re-opening for the first time in months. You are also able to officially meet another family inside, and you are even able to travel within the UK and stay the night in hotels.
For students, libraries are re-opening, and youth clubs and outdoor sports facilities will be accessible. For a full breakdown of all the new changes, please see the official government statement here.
Virtual Freshers Festival will offer the chance for student influencers / content creators (of any size) to share their content with the UKs student audience. In particular, we are looking for content creators who make videos (YouTube/Instagram/Tik Tok), although all influencers will be considered.
If you think you have some content you want to share, please get in touch with us via our form.
