Here’s what some of our student and graduate writers have to say about how they found our programme:

Writing for Give a Grad a Go’s blog gave me the chance to explore a topic I’m interested in and gain knowledge which I was able to apply to my own student lifestyle.

Writing to a set criteria including a word count and keywords was good practice for my prospective career in journalism, while the freedom of style and structure made the task a creative and enjoyable one.

I’d highly recommend writing for the blog: not only is it a great opportunity to showcase your work and secure a byline on an official media platform, but it’s fulfilling to know that your advice might help another student made a positive change to their everyday routine.

My experience with Give A Grad A Go has only been positive and writing for them was definitely a worthwhile and valuable experience.

As well as providing helpful guidance on useful topics to write on, they also allowed for flexibility and personal preference.

Furthermore, the feedback that I received on the draft copy of the blog post was both constructive and helpful.

The team members of Give A Grad A Go have been nothing but friendly and encouraging and I really look forward to writing more for them!
