The Courier Newspaper
Overseen by our sabbatical officer, the Editor of the Courier, our student writers and editors produce our weekly 40-page newspaper and maintain the website. Anyone who is a student at Newcastle University can write for the Courier. Whether you want to review your favourite film, comment on worldwide issues, update students about what’s happening on campus or hold your university to account with some investigative journalism, there’s space in the Courier for everyone’s voice to be heard. The Courier has been numerous awards over the years - most notably, Student Publication of the Year in the Guardian Media Awards.
You don’t need any prior experience to be part of the Courier, just turn up to one of our meetings, follow our social media channels (which can be found below) or contact us to find out more about how you can get involved.
