Thank you for your interest to become a DerbyUni Vlogger

This project is about giving students who are thinking about studying at the University of Derby a taste for life here.

There are many ways we can do that. We can produce glossy brochures and a slick website (those things are important) but what really shows off what’s great about the University is you, our students!

So, we want to show the University from your perspective.

We would like you to produce a video for us

Before you panic, don’t worry if you’ve never produced a video before. For us, that isn’t important. What’s important is that you enjoy studying here and that you’re up for sharing that with future students.

You don’t need a fancy camera or months of experience in video production and editing – we are here to help with all of that. All you need to do is the fun part – the filming.

What are these vlogs about?

We will provide you with a brief around a topic and all that we ask is that you supply us with up to 5 minutes’ worth of footage, so not loads. We’ll take your clips and edit them into a video.

Some examples of the vlog topics are: accommodation, student life, campus and facilities, the location of the city/town, being involved in a project through your course, how your tutor has supported you to gain new skills.

We’ve included hints and tips and things to think about when filming, we’ll give you a deadline that isn’t too strict and all you do then is upload your footage to our posh vlog platform – and we do the rest.

Support creating your vlog

Hannah Davies from our Media team is on hand. She can share new digital skills, hints and tips, and she will also help you to create your vlog and execute your fantastic ideas. Book a training session

What's in it for you?

It’s a great opportunity to share your story, try something new if you have never filmed before, or add some work experience to your CV. You are also supporting the University’s marketing content which in turn helps other students when they decide where to study.

If we like what we see and use your video we will pay you for your time.  You will need to be registered with the Student Employment Agency*, there could be an opportunity to produce more vlogs on a more regular basis working closely with the marketing team (we’ll pay you for those too!).
