Want to write for us?


We welcome guest posts for our blog and/or mailing list on the subject of education, university guidance, international study, student experience and teaching best practice. What we are looking for:

  • Round Up posts. Can you “theme” a collection of links (5-20) as a useful resource for students or academics?
  • Quote posts. We all need a bit of inspiration sometimes. Quote posts about teaching and studying success can be the perfect tonic to a tough week! Rather than just a list of popular quotes, can you reflect on what a quote means – how you do this is up to you.


We run 2 and 4 week academic and English Language courses for students aged 10 to 24 and we’re accredited by the British Accreditation Council – this means they have assessed and approved our courses, teaching and safety procedures. We’re a platform of 100,000+ subscribers with an international reach.
