Here are some guidelines when writing an opinion article

  • Preferably send us a picture and your name with your article. However, with good reasons, an anonymous opinion article is possible.
  • An opinion article can be 400 to 800 words. Quality over quantity (to name a cliché), so you don’t have to kill all your darlings.
  • We recommend writing about topics relevant to the current time, students and our university.
  • Don’t worry too much about writing the perfect article. We are happy to help you improve your piece!
