There are no current news articles.

The Student was founded by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1887 making it the UK's oldest student newspaper.

While a number of famous faces have started their careers writing for The Student, we are more than just a stepping stone for would-be journalists. We have opportunities for writers and reporters, photographers, copy-editors, designers and business-minded students wanting to help organise the paper's advertising deals and marketing.

We hold our writer's meetings every week on a Tuesday at 12:15pm somewhere in Teviot as well as socials every Thursday evening.
