PR Committee

By managing media relations and organizing publicity for events and lectures, the PR Committee tries to get UF Gothenburg noticed. We plan out and execute different communication strategies to make sure no one misses a single activity of UF. We are in charge of both keeping our members up to date through internal communication, as well as spreading information and making connections to new audiences especially using our social media channels.


Our job also involves attending the activities and events organized by UF Gothenburg in order to cover them and create content for our different communication channels.
In the PR Committee, we are actively looking for contributors interested in developing their skills in communications, social media management, marketing strategies, media production, public relations, and more.


If you are interested in improving your CV and learning more about communication while being part of an energetic group of students, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Utblick Magazine

Utblick is UF’s student magazine. We write for everyone, in and beyond Gothenburg, who is interested in international politics.
The print edition of Utblick is published twice a year and distributed at university departments, libraries and cafés around Gothenburg, but you can also find it here on our website. UF members conveniently receive the printed magazine delivered to their mailbox – free of charge!

Utblick provides a great platform for those who are interested in international politics and want to communicate that interest to the public through text, photography, video or illustration. If you are a student at university or high school looking to find inspiration on what subject to write your next civics, social or political science essay about, we believe our website is a great place to start.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or want more information on how to become an active member of Utblick, we are always looking for curious and critical voices!

Radio Utblick

The radio show focuses on international issues and discusses them every month with a special guest through an interview.

We record a programme once a month with our partner K103 Radio in their studio. Then, it is first broadcast on the FM band before being shared on the various streaming platforms. The choice of guests, the topics covered, the music played,… K103 Radio offers us total freedom in the management of our show.

The programme is accompanied by various columns and we are always on the lookout for new contributors. This is a great opportunity to get started in radio and to become familiar with the atmosphere of a studio.
