The students of Cambridge have headed home… but fear not! Our peerless team of student journalists will be back in time for the start of Lent.

In the meantime, for the latest national news stories, “edgy” features and hard-hitting opinions head over to

The five biggest articles of Michaelmas ’13 were:

1. Best Bums 2013: Vote Now

2. Tab Tries: A Fleshlight

3. Screw You, CICCU

4. Blackmail, Coercion and Lies: Cambridge Union Scandal-Struck

5. Confessions Of A Fucked Up Fresher

Michaelmas was also the term that we exposed Trinity’s unethical investments, student politics channelled Jean Claude van Damme, Caius students protested over rising fees, we did a fashion shoot with THE Lily Cole and Rowan Williams admitted to never having seen Game of Thrones.

And of course, this was the year that Cambridge bums went viral (for example here. And here… And also here) causing the Union to debate the motion “this house would expose their rear to the student press”. The motion was passed – so we can all look forward to an uncontroversial contest in 2014.

If you want to write for The Tab then we’d love to hear from you. This term the Cambridge Tab was the most-read online student newspaper in the world, with a readership that stretches from Madagascar to Bolivia. We were also nominated for best online student newspaper at the Guardian Student Media Awards, and picked up the prize for best columnist and placed runner-up for best Feature writer. In short, there has never been a better time to get involved.

No experience is necessary and no hacking is required – we just want people who are keen, fun and looking forward to getting stuck in.

All that leaves us to say is: have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
