This section is aimed at student journalists who write regularly about student experiences and opportunities.
It contains resources for your coverage of university life and career-oriented news/features throughout the year. In short, it lets you discover the motivations and expectations of your fellow students.
Some of the issues addressed by Futuretrack include:
• routes into Higher Education (HE) by ethnicity
• how students choose their courses and their universities
• students’ expectations of debt
• how students plan to fund their university education.
If you’d like to use these resources in your student newspaper, see the zipped files below. In each one, you’ll find an illustrator .eps, a hi-res cmyk .jpg and a Word document that contains copy that you can uses to explain the graphs correctly.
You may not use this information without our prior permission. Please contact us before publishing.
