UKrant needs student editors and a student photographer (Dutch and international)


Are you interested in (journalistic) photography? Then we have just the thing for you: the UKrant editorial team is looking for a student photographer.

What will you do?

You will be given several photo assignments a month. It could be anything: capturing an event or news event, making a portrait, or a thematic series.

What will you get in return?

You will work in a dynamic team and learn the intricacies of journalistic (news) photography. You will get to know the university and the people who study and work there in a completely different way. Last but not least: you won’t be doing it for free. We will compensate you.

What do we expect of you?

You are creative, you can ‘play with light’. You have camera skills and photo editing programmes hold no secrets for you. You have a sense of timing, you are not afraid, you’re able to approach people to take ‘that one beautiful picture’.

You participate in editorial meetings to think and brainstorm about topics (and of course how to represent them) with the permanent editor and student editors. Your own ideas are highly appreciated.


Then send a cover letter, a concise and relevant CV (we don’t need to know that you were a cashier five years ago) and photographic work you are proud of to [email protected] by Monday, May 6, 2024, mentioning ‘student photographer’ in the subject. We will then contact you soon.

Student editors

Are you curious? Do you enjoy writing? Are you in the middle of student life? Then working for UKrant is for you.

We are looking for students who want to write news and background stories about the UG and student life in Groningen on a regular basis.

What do we expect from you?

Enthusiasm above all. And of course an affinity with news and writing, as well as an ‘radar’ for fun and fascinating stories. Journalistic experience is not a prerequisite, but it is an advantage. We also expect you to have time for us, around half a day a week.

What can you expect from us?

You will be part of a fun, sociable, and dynamic team of student editors, videographers, photographers, freelancers, and permanent editors. We will ensure that you can further develop your writing skills. Also important: we’re not asking you to do it for free, we will compensate you for your time and work.


Then send a motivation letter, a concise and relevant CV (we don’t need to know that you were a cashier five years ago) and any previously written journalistic stories by email to [email protected], stating ‘student editor’ in the subject line. We will then contact you shortly.
