KCL Student newspaper/magazine? Watch
Was just wondering if anyone knew whether King's had a student newspaper or magazine?
I'm hoping to become a journalist in the future and having work published in student magazines/papers is a good way for employers to see how good you are!
So any ideas on if any exist and how to join up when you get to uni??
More about King's College London
Other options are the London Student newspaper which covers the whole University of London and is published frequently, with contributors from KCL, UCL, LSE, Imperial, etc. The editor next year is a KCL student and King's probably contributes more than any other college.
There are also subject-specific publications, such as King's Bench which is the official School of Law magazine and invites contributions from all students.
Also, being in London, there are great opportunities for work experience. Around the Waterloo campus are the offices of many magazines such as Hello, NME, Now... and they take students on weekly placements.
I'd love to work on the London Student newspaper, and having weekly placements at high profile magazines would be highly beneficial experience. That's definitely one of the +s of uni in London.
king's bench is a design nightmare and lawyer centric, but given the lack of press from roar it's a welcome addition nonetheless.
london student might as well be called ucl student.
if you want a decent student read, pick up the beaver from houghton street.
I didn't realise there were those magazines' offices around Waterloo campus (where I'll be!) & Perfect for me, a budding journalist!
Maybe someting new or old but re-developed mite start up in Sept when I get there...hopefully! *finger's X'd*
Disapointing that they've sold out. I liked the grubby version.
