Student enquiries

If you are a student studying PR, communications or media and are completing an assignment that is a “mock” interview and media story, then we are happy to help.

We handle these just the same as a journalist enquiry, only we expect a longer timeframe (usually 10 working days). Students typically have a longer lead time than a working journalist.

Simply send your enquiry, along with your name, university name and contact details, to .

One of our team will respond to you shortly thereafter. Thanks!
