Per Capita Media is Cambridge's newest, independent student media organisation established in August 2023, enabling Cambridge students to undertake newspaper and magazine journalism.
Per Capita Media (PCM) is a national student newspaper and magazine led by students at the University of Cambridge. Per Capita provides university students the chance to undertake original, high-quality journalism that is not restricted by University boundaries, unlike most student papers. We’re an independent publication– a rarity within the student media landscape. We report on issues of general interest to young people and highlight the work of emerging creatives across the UK.
We’re passionate about encouraging secondary school and college students to access and actively contribute to a professional publication. The publication is launching a programme called “Dialogue” in Lent 2023, designed specifically for secondary school students.
