The Mancunion

Britain's biggest student newspaper, serving Greater Manchester


All students at the University of Manchester can contribute to The Mancunion regardless of their level of experience.

If you want to write for us you should be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of our brand as well as an interest in journalism.  You should also have a desire to write high-quality, original content focussed on Manchester’s student bubble.

The Mancunion has fifteen sections ranging from Fashion to Features. Each section is run by an editor, or team of editors, who manage their section, commission articles, and write for the newspaper.

Each section has weekly meetings where contributors can come and pitch their ideas. In addition we hold recruitment meetings at the start of each term. Every section editor started out as a contributor so they’re always open to good ideas! To find out the names, email addresses, and meeting times for our section editors, go to the Contact page.

As well as writing, we also offer opportunities to students interested in photography, and web and graphic design.

Our office is on the first floor of the Students’ Union on Oxford Road, so feel free to pop in to learn more about how we operate.
