Who are we? And what is ‘This Is Where I Study’?
‘This Is Where I Study’, or TIWIS for short, is a Bournemouth University led project, in partnership with the University of Sheffield.
It is an experiment in ‘social journalism’, which we see as participatory, community-driven, highly shareable content produced explicitly for engagement on social media.
We hope to produce journalism that will be of use to prospective students, particularly those from abroad. We hope to provide existing students an opportunity to play with new ways of storytelling, of exploring the potential of social media to create interesting narratives.
Nightlife, best coffee houses, safe places to live; cost of lunch, part-time jobs, great picnic spots… If there’s anything you can’t find here, do ask, and we will try our darnedest to report on that.
If you’re a student looking to study in the UK, we’ve collected all the stuff you wanted to know about student life in Britain, that REALLY cool, important, EXISTENTIAL stuff—well, that’s what we aim to publish! We’ve collated real stories from real international students using #TalesFromBritain, be sure to check them out on Twitter or on our website!
Student Source are proud to support the This Is Where I Study project, if would like involved TIWIS would love your collaboration, whether it is contributing content or engaging with the page in other ways.
