InQuire Media Group is the University of Kent Canterbury’s student's newspaper written on your campus, with your voice in mind.
Distributed in print format across 9 locations on the Canterbury campus and online at inquiremedia.co.uk, InQuire is written by students, for students and we are the central hub for student and university news. We cover student news, opinion, lifestyle, entertainment, culture, science, sport, and satire as well as having departments in marketing, design and photography.
Formed in 1965, the student newspaper was originally named InCant. It remained this until 1985 when it become Kred and then InQuire in 2007. In 2008 we released our website InQuire Media, expanding our reach into the digital world.
InQuire Media is run completely by student volunteer editors who oversee and publish all content and advertising on the website. The publication provides a platform for students of the University of Kent to gain valuable experience in journalism, photography and multimedia. We also endeavour to inform and entertain our audience with quality articles, reliable information and breaking exclusives.
We work closely with the University of Kent and Kent Union to create special editions, such as Black History Month and This Kent Girl Can, and have expanded our committee to cover all student groups.
