With five-pound pints, library fines, and an inability not to use contactless in clubs, we students avoid talking about costs, at all costs. Yeah, we do budget, the standard vodka for pres has gone from Absolut, to Smirnoff, to Sainsbury’s, and by now you’ve realised Spoons is the only place worth going. But life is just about getting by on basics beans until the next loan payment comes in and you can splash out on some Heinz. Luckily, from the Wu-Tang Clan to the guy-from-Wham, everyone loves moaning about money. Check out our tracks below, using Spotify free (who the fuck can afford premium!)


For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
