About Guildsheet

Guildsheet is the monthly magazine produced by CGCU Media Group on behalf of the City & Guilds College Union. Topics covered include engineering articles, interviews with alumni, features recounting the activities of our clubs and societies, information about the CGCU and its events, a round-up of news from Live! and articles and features of interest to students in London - such as food reviews and ideas for things to do in our capital.

The magazine will be published monthly during term-time in the 2009-10 session, with a target of 40 pages per issue.


Circulation of Guildsheet is 1,000 copies. The magazine is distributed to the nine departments of the Faculty of Engineering at Imperial College London; which consist of around 3,500 undergraduates, 1,000 research postgraduates and 850 taught postgraduates. The majority of the readership is expected to be undergraduates within these departments.
