The Magazine

Welcome to our Student Life publication! Our publication is steered and put together for and by young people, focusing on themes and issues important to them. We publish nine editions a year in print and digital and encourage young people to contribute through writing, photography, design and business development. In addition, our collaborators often have the opportunity to attend VIP events and activities as well as reviewing products, films and restaurants. By participating in the production of our lifestyle publication, you are being given the platform to talk to your peers about topics that are relevant and important to you. You may wish to drum up support for a campaign or share some of your own poetry or artwork. We currently have 15 themes, chosen by our steering group and young people: Entertainment, Gaming, Art, Fashion, Beauty, Travel, My Planet, Sexual Health, Mental Health, Physical Health & Sport, Food, My Life, Careers, LGBT, Tech, and My Money. These sections are always evolving and include a broad range of topics so if you cannot see an area of interest straight away – don’t worry, we will be able to accommodate! We will always aim to publish your content in print but please note that your article may appear online first.

It’s really easy to become a contributor and you have the opportunity to be involved in as much or as little as you’d like. Please get in touch if this is something that you’d like further information on! We can’t wait to hear from you.

What’s In The Latest Issue?

Welcome to issue 44 of My Life!

It’s been an interesting few weeks navigating our way through the end of lockdown restrictions and it’s totally normal to expect the transition to take some getting used to. ‘Freedom Day’ has been and gone but let’s keep respect at the centre of our interactions with each other. Kindness goes a long way!

In this packed edition, we explore how we can love our ‘Summer self’; what the hype is with Ruby Chocolate and introduce a couple of new Student Life team members to you!

As ever, our publication is open to new and existing contributors so if you’ve got a story to share, article you’d like to write, photography to submit or review to publish, please get in touch!

Stay safe,

Best wishes,
Rachel Mitchell
