OTW referred to this opportunity in a previous post but there has been some confusion about where the details can be found, so they are reproduced below (from gorkanapr.com):
Writers wanted for Education UK
Send us your article pitches for the next editions of two annual magazines produced by the Guardian on behalf of Education UK, the British Council’s programme to encourage international students to come and study in the UK.
Postgraduate UK is a magazine for international students considering postgraduate studies in the UK. It focuses on exciting advances in the UK’s academic world and their relevance around the world. The latest issue included articles on the implications of the credit crunch for economists, natural disaster research, and food security.
We invite your pitches in any of the following subject areas:
• agriculture and related subjects
• applied and pure sciences
• business and administrative studies
• computer and mathematical sciences
• creative arts and design
• engineering and technology
• health and medicine
• law and legal studies
• social studies and communications
• tourism, travel and hospitality
Club UK is lighter in tone, and with an eye to readers who may be less fluent in English. It showcases the best of undergraduate study in the UK. Some articles focus on specific subject areas or career paths, others are more general student lifestyle features.
If you are a journalist with experience of writing on education issues or with specialist knowledge of academic fields, get in touch with your ideas – however all imaginative, newsworthy pitches will be considered. Payment by arrangement.
Please send pitches (specifying which magazine they are intended for), a summary of your experience plus links to cuttings to Lisa Grundberg (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 7 February 2011.
