Journalism Internships Abroad

Journalism work experience on your travels

Journalism remains one of the most respected careers in the world, and journalism internships represent an unmissable opportunity to gain integral experience as you look to make your name in the industry. Doing so abroad exposes you to new ideas and ways of working, increases the global contacts you will make, and lets you live in a new and exciting destination. Positions can be found in countries all over the world, though there will be more choice in English-speaking countries, like the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK.

Journalism work experience placements focusing on print, digital, and video journalism are available, meaning alongside general key skills such as researching, writing, and editing you can specialise in your chosen field. Media internships put you alongside local journalists, offering insight into their jobs on a day-to-day basis as well as the industry as a whole. Having them guide and critique your work throughout the placement often proves invaluable in improving your overall abilities.

When the experience is over, you’ll be in prime position to stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs or courses. To kick-start your career, check out the opportunities for journalism internships abroad below.
