Oxford's student newspapers and radio stations have long been the training ground for some of Britain’s most successful journalists and broadcasters. Even if you don’t want to be a professional journalist, you can develop your skills and CV by honing your writing, publishing articles, or broadcasting across the airwaves.
Student newspapers and magazines
Oxford has several student-run newspapers, each offering a different editorial perspective. Editors are always on the look out for more content and fresh voices, so if you like writing and have something to say, then there will be an outlet for you.
