The Tab does things differently to boring student media. We want to have a laugh and bring you the stuff you actually like. That’s why we already have over 235,000 readers a month.We don’t write long features about national politics or foreign affairs, because student journalists can't do them justice. Even at national papers, only the most experienced reporters are allowed to write them.
We don’t write long features about foreign affairs or the student union, because no one wants to read them here. Good journalism is about the news readers care about.
More than a student paper
Founded in Cambridge in 2009, The Tab has spread across the country. We are a newspaper for students run by professional journalists, not a student newspaper run by amateurs.
Tab stories regularly find their way into the national press because Tab journalists are a cut above the rest, and Fleet Street knows it.
“Recognition by The Tab is a good indication of a young journalist's potential. Students who have worked on The Tab will have a head start on their CV." – Maurice Chittenden, Saturday editor of The Sunday Times
