The Spark Newspaper

The Spark Newspaper, which recently celebrated its 83rd birthday and is the oldest of all our student media groups, is written by students for students.

We bring you all the latest campus news, gossip, and work to uncover unjustices within student life. If your accomodation isn't up to scratch, you experience a bad night out, or just want a certain topic delved into, then let us know.

The printed newspaper is published once a month and a seperate online team constantly work to keep our website up to date.

Writing for us is easy! You don't need any experience, just a passion for writing and learning about news, lifestyle, entertainment and/or sport.
