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 19th of February. 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 6th of March if they’ve been successful. Successful students will have up to the up to the 15th of May 2023 to write their blogpost.

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