Be a StudentTalk news hound!

basset hound with newspaper

Do you like to be first with the news and in the know? Are you passionate about your chosen profession and studies? Do you enjoy writing and getting to know others? Then you could be just the person we're looking for!

The SCoR and the editor of StudentTalk are inviting you to become a vital lynchpin between your university, the Society and radiography students across the UK.

You don't need to be a trained journalist or even a whizz with words, you simply need bags of enthusiasm and one ear to the ground at all times.

In this role you can expect to...

• Report news relevant to radiography from your cohort, course and/or university through StudentTalk. It could be anything from a charity event organised by radiography students, to a personal achievement such as an award.

• Engage your peers and encourage them to get involved in Society activities by disseminating important information and Society news.

• Build a network of contacts and liaise, where possible, with other Student Reporters outside your own university, as well as your university’s media department.

What’s in it for you?

• You will receive friendly advice and guidance from StudentTalk's editor and will further develop your communication skills.

• You will gain invaluable insight into the Society and the wider radiography profession, as well as make new contacts – at your university, the SCoR and further afield.

• As someone who works closely with the Society and your cohort, you will be invited to feed ideas and concerns into the Student Working Party, thereby shaping the Society’s benefits and services.

• Being a Student Reporter will give you a great talking point when you come to interview for your first job!

Interested in finding out more? Please get in touch with Emma Abbott, editor of StudentTalk.

If you'd like to apply, please send an 250-300 word email explaining why you would make a great StudentTalk reporter: And if you already have examples of work – such as a blog post or published news story – please link to those too.

We look forward to hearing from you!
