SCAN is the official newspaper of Lancaster University – written, edited and produced by students!


We publish our print issue every 3 weeks during term-time and have opportunities for you to get involved as a writer, photographer, editor, illustrator and much more…


In terms of enhancing your CV, getting involved with SCAN in any capacity will give you valuable experience that prepares you for a career in the media or creative industries.


Whether you want to be a journalist, photographer, marketing manager, editor, or sports commentator, SCAN is a brilliant introduction to the media and is also an opportunity to make friends with like-minded people outside of your course or college.


Writing for SCAN helps to improve your writing ability, as it sharpens your attention to detail and encourages you to write with a more creative flair.
