Everything for journalists

welcome to our press centre

The Student Room will be visited by millions of students in the run up to results day 2015 and has over 1.8 million registered UK student members. We are able to provide access to this audience and offer a range of resources to support editorial on students, exams and clearing – often on a fast turn-around basis – including:

  • Research polls. We can help test student opinion on key exam issues, and generate large samples quickly.
  • Soundbites. We can help provide instant feedback on a range of issues and emerging news topics.
  • Trends. We can provide insights into stress and sentiment throughout the exam and results period.
  • Case Studies. We can help source student, teacher and expert case studies.
