Opus Magazine is the only independently student-run publication at the University of Newcastle, Australia. 

It is published by the Newcastle University Students’ Association (NUSA), the peak body of student representation at the University of Newcastle.

Established in 1954, Opus has always been at the forefront of student advocacy, and has given students at the University of Newcastle a platform to speak about issues important to them through the anti-war era, the sexual revolution, the rise of neoliberalism, and now through the digital and post-digital eras.

Opus has never shied away from covering issues that affect students, however controversial, and has traditionally brought the fight to the University to ensure the fair and ethical treatment of students.

Opus is guided by the NUSA Media Collective, a group of students interested in student-produced media at the University of Newcastle. The Collective is convened by the democratically-elected Media Officer. The group meets regularly to discuss Opus, and decides on themes for special issues, directions for content, and more. You can join the Media Collective Facebook group here to keep up with meetings and events.

Submissions of writing and artwork can be sent through our online form here.

General enquiries can be sent to media@nusa.org.au.
