The Tab is a student news site with over six million monthly readers and a Tab in every student city. The stories that you write with us will be shared on The Tab Durham Facebook page, which hosts a readership of over 21,000. Our best articles are often shared across the leading Tab site, reaching readers in every corner of the country.

Writing for The Tab Durham, your stories will reach thousands of student and alumni readers. While your articles won’t be in print, you’ll get an understanding of how current news and media function by working with Editors in Tab HQ.

Our local Durham team works alongside an Assistant Editor in London; they provide training and constant professional writing advice that you won’t get from any other student media outlet. Previous Tab writers have gone on to work for major news outlets, including VICE, The Times, Vogue, Cosmopolitan and The Evening Standard – to name a few.

The Tab HQ also run internships over the summer for Tab writers who show a keen interest in pursuing a career in media. The opportunities at The Tab are endless, and what better way to gain experience for your future than while joining The Tab family?

We’re holding our first open meeting of term at The Library Bar on Wednesday the 13th of October at 7 pm, so if you’re keen to find out more, head on down.
