The Limit

Welcome to The Limit which, long before Label, was the name of the University’s original student magazine.  It originated around the time of the First World War when the College workshops were being used to train (mainly women) for the munitions factories and was named after the Limit gauges made for shells.

The arts play an important role in the lives of many of our students offering them a means of self-expression, a social outlet and a space away from their studies. I hope this magazine will help fulfil all those benefits and also provide an enjoyable insight into the range of activity going on within the campus.

I have been really impressed with the ideas and responses from students and would like to thank all those students who have submitted content so far. 

Writing content

We continue to add new content and will pay students £30 per article (£40 for a video tutorial).  If you would like to contribute to The Limit with either a feature article, video tutorial/workshop or a piece of creative writing then please start by pitching your idea in an email to me ( Please don’t send an article without contacting me first so we can discuss your idea and whether or not it would be suitable. We cannot guarantee to publish all of the articles we receive.
