The Tab is a site covering youth culture and student culture, run by journalists who like being first.

We livestream from protests, expose bullshit and discrimination and tell you which kebab shops are worth your money. Our London office is run by 23-year-olds, who write seriously hot takes, sickeningly accurate guides to life, and chat to Jeremy Corbyn about Love Island.

The Tab Network – our guerilla army of bold and subversive student reporters across the country – breaks stories like this lovely young man who burned a £20 note in front of a homeless man

We were founded by three students at Cambridge in 2009 as a reaction to out-oftouch student papers.

Since then, The Tab has exploded into one of the biggest youth media sites in Britain.
That’s why our writers get offered the best jobs in the media. If they’re not snapped up by us, you’ll find Tab grads at

VICE, the BBC, Reuters, Bloomberg, Vogue, BuzzFeed, The Times, ITV, The Guardian, The Independent, Dazed, HuffPost, Business Insider, Mashable and The Financial Times.
