Why Write?

Despite tuition fees for the top universities being set to rise again, the quality of university applicants is increasing. Year after year, undergraduate courses are becoming increasingly more competitive due to an increasing number of students obtaining top A Level grades. Admission tutors are now looking for students who have read well beyond the A Level syllabus, who have developed an in-depth interest in their course and have provided practical and applied evidence of that interest. In writing for Tiffinomics, you will enhance your UCAS Applications in the following ways:

  1. You are expressing a practical interest in a subject you want to study at university.
  2. You are demonstrating an applied knowledge beyond the A Level Syllabus.
  3. You are differentiating yourselves and proving you have the desire, commitment and intelligence to excel in rigorous university studies.

Article Tips

Your work should be typed onto a word document . Your articles should be original, informative and interesting to read. Do your research carefully and ensure that your facts are accurate. If you have sources, please make sure you quote them precisely. Most importantly, write about something you are interested in!

What should I write about?

All articles should be related to social science (particularly economics, history, politics/international relations, sociology, human geography, law, philosophy). For example, you could submit a science article involving ethics or commercialisation, a maths article on Game Theory or even an article on Anthropology. Articles closely related to an ongoing issue or an issue that has occurred in the last 2-3 weeks are strongly encouraged but are not compulsory. You can write an article under any of the categories. These articles can range from commentaries and extended essays to book & lecture reviews and interviews.  Your article may overlap across other subjects. However, please send your article to the editor of the section that dominates your article’s subject matter.

Is there a Word Count?

All articles, except for podcast or video (which last between 0 and 20 minutes) reviews, should be a minimum of 500 words. There is no set word limit on any of your articles.

Can I include images and/or diagrams i.e graphs?

Yes, you can include images, graphs, tables or diagrams – though this is not compulsory. Please insert the diagram next to the text which the diagram is being reference to- include the source of the data you are going to display. For images, please specify what image you would like by inserting the image next to its appropriate text and we will try and obtain a certified and copyright version of that image.

What constitutes a ‘Science & Technology’ article?

All ‘Science & Technology’ articles must be related to social science. Articles should not purely focus on scientific issues such as medicine. Rather, articles should focus on the following; 1) technology and its social and economic implications, 2) ethical issues in a science related topic, 3) scientific innovations or newly found discoveries and the costs and/or benefits to society or 4) commercialisation of scientific or technological products such as drugs or mobile phones.
