The King’s Tab is written by KCL students, for KCL students. We will be reviving term two with an open meeting at 7pm Friday 26th January, at The Vault (within Bush House). DM us on Instagram if you have any questions or to find out more.

Whether you are an aspiring journalist, hilarious writer, meme maker, content creator or TikTok fanatic, anyone and everyone is welcome to come along and meet our King’s Tab editorial team. And the best bit is: you don’t need any experience.

First of all, what actually is The Tab?

The Tab is a student news site across over 30 UK universities, with over 10 million monthly readers. Writing for The King’s Tab, we’ll share your stories to our The King’s Tab Facebook and Instagram pages where we have over 22,000 combined followers!

We’re passionate about writing stories for students that they actually care about in a style they actually enjoy reading. There is no limit to the range of stories we cover, we post a bunch of fun features whilst always looking for the next big scoop.

If your stories absolutely slap, they’ll get crossposted on all our Tab pages, exposing them to a much wider audience.

We’re the first to break the stories at King’s and in London, covering important issues, we talk about mental health, student campaigns and protests, and holding the university to account.

Other King’s news we’ve covered includes updates on strike action in and around campus, university rankings and student events.

We also do fun features, like the famous KCL alumni you had no idea were fellow students, or ranking the 10 best statues at KCL.

Why The Tab? 

Why should you write for us? Modern news media is moving away from print, and writing for us means your stories will reach thousands of readers.

The King’s Tab is a great way to get involved in a range of opportunities. Absolutely no experience is needed – we’ll train you up! There’s no commitment, and you can write as much or as little as you want around your uni studies and deadlines.

The team works with an Assistant Editor who is a professional journalist based at The Tab HQ in London. They provide training in the basics of reporting, and quality advice on how to make your writing stand out that you won’t get anywhere else; to help you develop as journalists and produce the best digital content you can.

The Tab alumni frequently go on to work for famous publications all over the world, including VICE, The Times, and Vogue. Former Tab student writers have go on to jobs at The Telegraph, The Sun, Daily Express, Spectator and Cosmopolitan.
