Still not as good as Varsity, of courseScreengrab/Financial Times

Aspiring Cantab financiers will be pleased to know that all students now have free access to the Financial Times.

Due to a collaboration between the University Library and the Marshall Library for Economics, University members are now able to access the paywalled online version of the newspaper via web browsers and the FT’s mobile app. A standard digital subscription usually costs £5.35 per week.

The Financial Times describes itself as “one of the world’s leading news organisations, recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy”. Its coverage places an emphasis on business and economic news and it has gained a reputation for liberal, pro-EU journalism in recent years.

Access is available to university members anywhere in the world. The paper’s website,, can be accessed via Raven using this link. Links to the paper’s website will also be included on the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z, the LibGuide for newspapers, and via iDiscover.

Students are recommended to create an account before content can be accessed via the Single Sign-On (SSO) button which will recognise users as a member of the University.

Writing on its blog, the Cambridge ejournals team said this would “significantly enhance the Cambridge reader’s existing access” by “providing up-to-the-minute news coverage, all statistical sources and their full visualization online, personalization of content, and companies and markets data”.
