The Oxford Student is a weekly newspaper produced by and for members of the University of Oxford. The newspaper was founded in 1991, and is run through OSSL, the commercial subsidiary of the Oxford University Student Union. The newspaper’s constitution grants the newspaper editorial independence.
As well as a print edition which reaches 15,000 students each week, our website receives over one million hits every year. We’ve broken news stories that have appeared in the national press, and many of our writers have also written for national publications. Students who worked for the Oxford Student have gone on to join the Guardian, Times and Independent, amongst other publications.
