In this programme we want you to function as an editorial board. Therefore we expect you always to be searching for news. You have to know what your target groups find attractive and important. You should not be scared; you regularly will be in touch with persons or organisations and confront them with your (critical) questions. You will have to dig up a lot of information through research. In the end the information has to be processed into an attractive format and you will have to decide which medium fits best to the information: paper, internet, video, photography and/or infographics. Ofocurse this will be supported by classes in photography, writing, filming and so on to help you improve these skills.

We collaborate with several partners: The English section of the Hanze Mag(azine), the English radio program HappyHourFM and their websites. We will always keep looking for possibilities to extend the media we use as publication platforms. We could make use of an own Youtube channel and Facebook page. Articles that students write are published on our  site: www.hanzejournalism.nl.  ​ 

Learning outcomes

In addition to this there are more roles than writing, filming and producing to be played in an editorial board:

  • convincing your target groups to read and watch and listen to you; marketing, PR; building up networks

  • helping to maintain the tools you have to publish on; volunteering in the radio program, helping out with technical things like website maintenance and development, maybe find advertisers and other third party involvement.

Furthermore various guest lectures and excursions can be expected.
We strive for a mutual end product to which every student has paid his or her contribution.

Before applying

There are two things you always should keep in the back of your head:

  • your target group(s): all current students involved in international educational programs in Groningen, but also the prospective students and the international students that did (a part of) their study in Groningen

  • being a member of the editorial board, you are a journalist during the whole period, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
