Sussex Digital Media Gurus

Find out about the University of Sussex's Digital Media Gurus.

Introducing our Digital Media Gurus

Our Digital Media Gurus are current Sussex students who are paid to work flexibly for the University.

They help cover events across campus and locally on our social media feeds while completing an internship, which also helps with their job prospects. Since starting the scheme in 2017, many have gone on to work in social and digital media after graduating.

Our Gurus have worked on some of the biggest events, activities and campaigns across campus and Sussex.

From covering events like Brighton Pride or the Brighton Marathon on our Instagram stories, to helping develop, write and feature in our Spot the Bot Clearing campaign, no two days are the same for our Gurus. One even edited a graduation video that Sky News shared on Twitter to more than four million followers.
