Student Finance Newspage Pitch (300 words)

As a group we have come up with a one-minute news package to be displayed within a news show. Throughout the start of the project we came up with several ideas that the news package could be about. However this idea had to relate to the news shows being about student life, as the show would be discussing this topic. So we came up with the ideas of student accommodation, student finance, student drinking, student socialising. As a group we then decided which topic to feature the news package on, we all decided on student finance as a lot of people have strong views about the topic and we thought this would be a strong area of discussion in the news package and also on the show. We then decided what was most important to have in the package to get a clear message across. As the package will be on student finance we thought of the idea of collecting our own statistics to gather primary data on what people thought of student funding. To collect these statistics we gave out questionnaires to prospective to students going into higher education on a college open day. We also came up with the ideas of facts, we needed to include some hard evidence of facts about the student finance. We would gather these from the Internet, newspapers and books as we needed facts from previous and facts from today to give an overall prospective of how things have changed over the years with the continues rise in tuition fees. During the open day we also took the chance to conduct an interview with the students, as we were filming the footage live we plan to use the footage in the news package production. We will also film cutaways and insert graphics to make the news package more interesting to look at on screen.
