SATNAV Magazine

Our magazine is published bi-annually and includes articles written by students on topics within a chosen theme, and anything that communicates science, from artwork to crosswords. We’ve also had several opportunities to interview world-renown scientists and experts such as Nobel Laurette Professor Sir Fraser Stoddart and author of ‘Inferior’, Angela Saini, and covered huge events like STEM, LGTBQ and You, and the EPS Trophy! You can read these and all our previous magazine editions and exclusive content at

SATNAV:SCOPE e-newsletter

We launched our new e-newsletter, SATNAV:Scope, in the 2020/2021 academic year in the College of Engineering and Physics Sciences and we now publish monthly issues with student-selected theme. These issues contain articles, short paragraphs or topic introductions, artworks, and resources suggested by students. If you would like to vote for upcoming themes or add your own suggestions, you can do so via this short form. You can also check out our schedule which gets regularly updated here, and our previous newsletter issues are all available on our blog at
