Nine launches new hub aimed at students

With help from various publications – watoday.com.au, theage.com.au, smh.com.au and brisbanetimes.com.au – Nine has created a digital hub that helps students make sense of tertiary education.

The announcement:

As high school leavers prepare for their next stage of their education, Nine’s metro mastheads have launched digital hub Campus to help students navigate their way through universities and colleges.

Launching on smh.com.au, theage.com.au, brisbanetimes.com.au and watoday.com.au, the hub is filled with informative and practical content by the mastheads’ education experts, aimed at students transitioning from high school as well as current university students and people considering a return to study. Campus will help make sense of the tertiary sector as well as offering insights into what uni or college life is like and the opportunities available.

There will be articles to help make decisions about courses, learn how to set up for a career, and tips on the best ways to manage study load, finances and social life. Masthead writers will provide insights into their own tertiary experiences — what they did, what they wish they had done, and what they wouldn’t change.

Campus also features a unique interactive search tool, allowing readers to search courses at universities and colleges across New South Wales and ACT, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia. Users choose a state/territory, a type of course (eg arts, science, engineering etc), a possible selection rank such as 75-80, and can see what courses are on offer at a range of universities and colleges.

“Education is a topic that is of huge interest to our readers,” said Tory Maguire, executive editor of The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Brisbane Times and WAToday. “Campus is a natural extension of the success of our Year 12 results and ATAR coverage as we continue to deliver engaging and useful information to younger audiences.”

James McCluskie, Nine’s client director – education & workplace, finance & tech, added: “Campus provides our tertiary partners the ideal platform to engage throughout the year with their key target audiences across the entire Nine publishing portfolio. A full calendar of digital first reports across 2024 encompassing everything from Study Guides, Postgrad options, and University rankings housed within Campus will see the hub become the No1 destination for parents and students looking to discover the best tertiary options available.”
