Here at the Students’ Union, we have three popular and nationally reputable Student Media outlets, The Mancunion, Fuse FM, and Fuse TV. All three are based in the Activities Space on the first floor of the Union, and are always looking for new volunteers, whether you have prior experience or not. Whether you want to go into the media industry, as many of our previous members have done, or just get involved in a creative and fun activity, Student Media is an unmissable opportunity.
The Mancunion has been around since 1969 in a variety of forms. With a readership of 20000, it is the largest student newspaper in the country and we pride ourselves on being the voice of Manchester’s substantial student body.
We offer a unique opportunity to get involved with a high-profile publication that is totally student-run, producing professional and high-quality content each week. Experience at The Mancunion will look impressive on any CV, whatever industry you are planning to enter.
We produce 20 print editions per year and publish online content all year round. Copies of the newspaper can be picked up all round campus, and interested contributors should check our website to find out when individual section meetings are. Any further enquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fuse FM is the Students’ Union’s own student-run radio station. From our very own studio in the heart of the Union, we broadcast day and night during term time, and allow students to host their very own shows, whether it be a celebration of a certain music genre or a panel discussion on the social issues affecting us as students.
Our live stream and show schedule can be found on our website (currently under construction). For any further information, please e-mail email@example.com.
The best place to be if you want to go into television, filmmaking, or just flex your creative muscles, is Fuse TV, the Students’ Union’s very own TV station. We are one of the fastest-growing student TV stations, only having been started in 2009. We have a team dedicated to creating high-quality, interesting content to the students of Manchester, and use quality software to create professional-looking videos which are uploaded to our YouTube channel. We also provide training to use all our equipment, software, and to hone your presenting or scriptwriting skills.
Our Station Manager is also the newly-elected Development Officer of the National Student Television Assocation, NaSTA. She aims to increase collaboration and coherence between student TV stations across the UK. The prospects for growth and improvement this year here at Fuse TV are therefore extremely exciting.
