This morning, one of my seminar tutors provided the class with a very useful link to The Guardian Media Brief. Here, you can sign up to a service on behalf of The Guardian, where they send you a low down of the best news for the day. You can sign up to the service and afterwards you will receive an email every single day, providing relevant news – genius. This way, you won’t need to punish yourself for failing to read the day’s news, yet again.
I thought this idea was brilliant and I wanted to share it with you (especially with my fellow media students), as I previously mentioned the importance of self-education in your university topic as this helps with further study. Thus, the idea of reading little and often, fits in perfectly.
As students, it’s so easy to allow your hectic lifestyle to have detrimental effects on your studies, so this service seems really helpful in that arena. No longer do you have to remind yourself to traipse through the headlines, instead The Guardian media Brief will do that for you! Give it a quick read before your lecture or when you’ve got a spare break between uni perhaps.
