‘What garbage editorial’

Above all, student journalism has taught me the following: you can’t chase a story in heels and a thick skin is as vital to your job as a pen. Luckily, this isn’t my first rodeo and I have both. Each week in Concrete is different, and this was no exception. We reached a record number…

Less than half of UEA students meet their offer

Less than half of UEA students achieved the grades needed to secure their place last year, with numbers dropping from 64 percent in 2013/14 to 47 percent in 2018/19. There figures showed a consistent decrease in figures year upon year. One of the most significant drops occurred this year, where the percentage of students meeting…

For those seeking a little Halloween inspiration, this week we’ve explored everything spooky in…

Concrete editorial 342: Happy Halloween!

Last week Concrete reported on a video of UEA’s local MP jokingly yelling “get on your knees bitch” at Labour conference. Mr Lewis has since apologised for the comment, but no doubt about it, he’s lost the respect of a fair few UEA students. Often with politics, we’re told to overlook a politician’s personal opinions…

Venue editorial 342 – Deputy editor

Halloween-related culture is important, I’d argue far more so than Christmas nonsense. This issue will help you find out what to watch, listen to, play, or enjoy, but it misses one thing – how to fit it all in. You don’t want to be enjoying Halloween things in November, that’s just embarrasing. You’re going to…
