Cherwell is one of the United Kingdom’s oldest student publications. Our writers and editors have gone on to head nearly every prominent British publication – from The Times to The Guardian.

Our alumni include literary icons like Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene and WH Auden as well as business magnates like Rupert Murdoch. And we have something for everyone, whether your interests lie in writing, photography, video or design.

Our history of journalism is long and storied. We hope you’ll join us in this new chapter.
