Why Students?
The 18-24 year old student audience is highly sociable – and they are early brand adopters. If you are interested in advertising to students you are doing the right thing because our audience of more than 80,000 is away from home for the first time with lots of disposable income. More importantly, they define themselves by the clothes they wear, the technology the use, the brands they buy and the bars and restaurants they frequent.  

For brands this means an exciting opportunity to create grass roots advocacy and ultimately a wider interest and demand in your products and services.

We have a number of exciting advertising packages available for brands wanting to reach this student audience:

Guest Blog Posts with Student Wire
We consider sponsored blog posts that are in keeping with our editorial focus.  Posts are priced at £75+ VAT per post, which includes one web link. These will also be shared across Student Wire’s social media platforms. Special rates are available for multiple posts. Please note all sponsored posts are categorised clearly in the aim of editorial transparency. Also if you wish to pay by PayPal there is a small extra charge to cover their fees.

Competition Prizes
Our readers love competitions and our giveaways regularly attract hundreds of entries. Our minimum prize value is £100 and we will consider any complementary brands or products that will be of interest to our student audience.
