Submit to Student News

Share your news and stories with the student community
Student News is our weekly bulletin with stories, notices, events, news, competitions, special offers and resources delivered directly to all students.

The student newsletter is distributed every Monday during semester to all currently enrolled students. You can submit content to the newsletter or to the online student news hub, where we publish articles about campus life, academic tips and student success stories.

If you have something to share, we’d love to hear from you.

Have a question about your submission or feedback about student news? Email us at university.communications@sydney.edu.au
 

Submission guidelines

Any content published must be relevant to the University experience of students. Articles may only be submitted by University staff, students or representatives of the University’s student organisations unless permission has been granted by the editorial team. 

Content must not be defamatory, offensive, discriminatory, harm (or be likely to harm) the reputation of the University, or breach any laws or University policies.

Your submission should:

  • Be submitted by 5pm on the Wednesday prior to your intended publishing date. Items submitted after this deadline may be pushed to the following edition, depending on the volume of submissions. Aim to submit as early as possible. 
  • Have an interesting title and start with a question or call to action. "Are we experiencing a global food shortage?" is more engaging than "the department is having a lecture on the global food shortage".
  • Include a link to further information and/or an action (such as to register/RSVP).
  • Use an engaging image. Consider your image before submitting – is it eye catching? Choose an interesting image of the subject or research over a headshot of the speaker, especially if the speaker is not well-known to students, or not as much of a drawcard as the topic.
  • Have the right message at the right time. Consider the perspective of your audience – why should they care about your message, and why should they care at that particular time? Consider context, relevance and timeliness.

Final editing of all materials submitted will be undertaken by the editorial team as required. If time permits, any substantive changes will be sent back to authors for review or revision before the final deadline.
