Blog for FindAMasters!

Interested in writing for a professional website? Looking to reach new audiences? Keen to share your postgraduate study experiences and help future students?

How about the chance to do all three?

We're looking for more people to help offer new insights and advice here on the FindAMasters blog. Could you be one of them?

Who are we looking for?

We've been helping students search for Masters degrees and providing funding information and postgraduate guides since 2005.

In 2016 we took the next step and set up this blog as a way to offer more advice, on more topics and to stay on top of the news stories that matter to current and future Masters students.

So far, we've covered everything from postgraduate jobs and funding calendars to advice on going abroad for a Masters and insights into what postgraduate study is actually like.

Along the way we've also explored other topics like Masters loans, student welfare and the impact of Brexit on postgraduate study.

Now we're looking for more contributors with stories to tell about postgraduate study, or different viewpoints to share.

You could be:

  • A prospective Masters student, interested in sharing your experience of finding and applying for a course.
  • A current Masters (or PhD) student, ready to share your stories and give future students a sense of what postgraduate study is really like.
  • A UK or international student with insights to offer about studying a Masters abroad.
  • A member of a student union, or postgraduate society, looking to say more about studying a Masters in your city, or at your university.

... or anyone else with something to offer an audience of future postgraduate students.

What's involved?

We want the experience of blogging for us to be fun, flexible and rewarding.

Posts don't have to be long (we tend to publish pieces at around 700-1,000 words) and topics don't need to be reinvent the internet (that would make a mess).

Most importantly, you don't need to be an established blogger or even be an experienced writer. Our Content Team will offer feedback and advice to get the best out of your ideas and make your FindAMasters blogs something to be proud of.

There's also no ongoing commitment and no deadlines. We're always interested in hearing more from our bloggers, but we know that postgraduate study is demanding.

What's in it for me?

Sadly, we can't write your dissertation for you, but we can offer the following:

  • The chance to write for a large and diverse online audience - We're proud to say that lots of people read the FindAMasters blog. Articles are also featured on our Facebook and Twitter channels, as well as in our weekly postgraduate newsletter
  • A worthwhile addition to your CV - Whatever you plan to do with your Masters, experience writing for a professional website will enhance your CV. If a career writing for the web interests you, you'll also come away with a useful addition to your portfolio.
  • Opportunities to expand your network - Got a blog of your own? Looking to connect with new audiences and find new readers? Guest blogging for a site like ours can be a great way to do just that.
  • Editorial guidance and feedback - We think this one is important. However experienced (or inexperienced) you are, we'll help get the most from your topics. We value our guest authors and offer them the same advice and support we give to our own writers.

Sound like something you'd be interested in? Well then...

What next?

Getting started as a FindAMasters guest-blogger is simple.

You don't need to submit a formal application, you don't need to send a CV and you don't need to send us a completed article.

In fact, you don't necessarily need to have a topic in mind.

All you need to do is get in touch with us at: editor[at]findamasters.com

Use your email to say a little bit about yourself and what you're studying (or interested in studying). If you have a post to suggest, go for it. If you don't, we'll work with you to think of something. And if you have any other questions about blogging for FindAMasters - just ask.
