Opportunities for Media and Journalism students

You will have plenty of opportunities to develop your practical skills, as part of your degree, across the University, and in the local and international community.

Our award-winning Student Media team is always hot on the heels for the latest coverage.

Newcastle University Students’ Union has its own newspaper, radio station, and TV channel. They are all produced by students, for students.

We also have journalism initiatives run in collaboration with staff, students, and the community in the region and across the world.
