What is the The Tab?
The Tab is a student news site with more than six million monthly readers. The Tab is a national news site and is also spread across 30 different universities.
Writers for The Warwick Tab will get their articles shared on our Instagram and Facebook pages, with chances to also be shared on the national pages.
The Warwick Tab writes about breaking news stories on campus and topics that students actually care about. Last year, we covered stories such as Former Warwick Uni student on trial for leading Neo-Nazi group and Warwick mental health services named ‘unfit’ over student loneliness concerns.
The Warwick Tab also writes many fun features as well as news pieces. Last year, we also wrote fun articles like I visited TikTok’s favourite chip shop: Binley Mega Chippy and hosted a huge BNOC competition that brought in thousands of votes.
This means there will always be something you can write about – whether it’s a bit of fun or something more serious.
