Calling For Student Blog Ideas!

We are excited to announce that we are inviting students to submit their ideas for the chance to be commissioned to write a student blog for the IDS Alumni Network website!
7 Oct 2022

We are inviting IDS students to submit up to three ideas which will outline their idea for a blog! Each outline can be up to 100 words and can be anything from personal experience to interests to opinions! Have a look at the previous blogs on our website to get a feel for the range of ideas that you could submit.

The deadline for you to send us ideas is by the end of Sunday the 16th of October. Please Send your ideas to

After this time, we will send everyone’s ideas to the ‘Alumni Advisory Committee’ (AAC) where the panel will vote on their favourite 5 ideas who will then be commissioned to write their blog. The Alumni Advisory Committee is made up of alumni volunteers who contribute directly to IDS strategies and plans.

If chosen, the author will be paid £58 for their work! You will also receive lots of resources from the alumni office to help with getting started and Zoe Windsor will assist in the editing. Everyone will know by 25th of October if they’ve been successful. Successful students will have up to the 12th of February 2023 to write their blogpost.

We can’t wait to hear all your interesting ideas!
