About Young Academic

Welcome to the Home of Student News, The Ultimate Festival Guide and the Best Cricket News on the Web!

Young Academic is the ultimate source of student news and education news in the United Kingdom. Written by a team of in house journalists, and both former and current students, the site aims to give a politically unbiased round up of all the current news items that matter to young academics around the country.

Young Academic draws on a wealth of experience in the online marketing and student media sectors, making the site fully comprehensive and aesthetically pleasing.  Whether it is career guides, interview & exam advice or even the now infamous festival guide that students are after, readers can rest assured that Young Academic will have it covered.

The writers here at Young Academic have plied their trades at such newsrooms as IPC Media, Sky Sports, The Guardian and Student Times in order to create this incisive and informative news website. With daily discussion boards and forums, there is truly no other student news website quite like Young Academic in the United Kingdom.

As well as leaving no stone unturned when it comes to education news and all things academia, we have passion for sports and music as well. Although your studies should undoubtedly come first, we understand that it is important to have a good time as well. As such, our aforementioned festival guide and our all new Premier League Football and Cricket News sections are now jam packed with match reports, interviews, analysis and features to give you some much needed respite from a gruelling academic year.

Having grown from a blog in mid 2010 into a news website that can be found in the upper echelons of the Google Rankings and indeed Google News, Young Academic now has campus correspondents all around the country and is always looking for new contributors. If you are at University and want to have your say, then we encourage you to send in your articles.

It doesn’t matter whether you have a campus profile, album review or even a political opinion piece that you wish to see published, please feel free to send them into us at [email protected]
