So what exactly is The Tab?

The Tab is a student news site with over 6 million monthly readers and is spread across over 30 different universities. Our writers articles are shared across our Facebook and Instagram pages. Here at The Sussex Tab we cover a wide variety of topics. Last year we covered events such as the Sussex Renter’s Union occupying the Jubilee building on campus and Police investigating a potential unexploded bomb near Sussex Uni. 

We don’t just write serious news pieces, we also write fun features. From What Sussex students hate most about Valentines to Meeting the Tiktokers going viral at Sussex University. Whether you enjoy writing about breaking news or interesting features, we’ve got something for everyone.
