About

The Courier is Newcastle University Students’ Union’s free weekly newspaper. The Courier was first established in 1948 and has since grown to become an integral part of student life at Newcastle. It is a term time paper produced for the students, by the students. We have a team of approximately 300 writers and 43 sub-editors. The Courier is one of the best student newspapers in the country and has won the Guardian Student Media Award for ‘Student Publication of the Year’ in both 2012 and 2013, and receiving runner-up in 2014.

We hold weekly meetings every week during term time. The details are:

Current Affairs (News, Comment, Sport): Every Monday at 11.15am in the Warkworth room @ NUSU Central

Culture (Lifestyle, Fashion, Beauty, Arts, Music, TV, Film, Gaming, Science): Every Wednesday at 1pm in the Barbara Strang Teaching Centre G36

Here at The Courier we are always keen to welcome new writers and new ideas, regardless of your experience in journalism. If you’re interested in getting involved, come along to one of our writers’ meetings or email Jade Holroyd on editor.union@ncl.ac.uk.
