Nick Bush

Nick (he/they) is a former Editor-In-Chief at The Student. The paper is uniquely situated to act as a common voice for an otherwise atomistic student community and provide a central place to celebrate and support the identities of the student population. Outside of the purely editorial perspective, Nick has been deeply involved with the construction of the paper itself and established a new design language in 2021 that is being rolled out across our digital and print platforms. Sitting on the committee as Head of Digital for the third year in a row, Nick has also designed and developed four iterations of the website and introduced a range of internal services.
