Journalism Internships Abroad

Work on a newspaper, magazine, radio, or TV show on an overseas placement

Projects Abroad Journalism internships are a unique way of honing your journalism skills, building a portfolio and getting international work experience.


Our media internships abroad cover radio, print, digital, and TV journalism. You’ll be working with professional journalists, seeing their day-to-day work and getting to try your hand at new skills. You could be researching and writing stories, helping with the smooth running of the project, or working on distribution.


You’ll also get a better understanding of the cultural and political background of the country you’re interning in.

Is a Journalism internship abroad right for me?

Our media internships abroad are right for any aspiring or professional journalists who want to learn new things or experience a new environment.


No previous experience is needed, and our staff will support you throughout your internship. Journalism is a challenging career to break into, and this internship will give you valuable experience you can put on your CV.


You’ll be able to gain journalism experience abroad in a supported way as you explore the area and get to know the local community.


If you’re interested in our Journalism internships, but would like to do something broader, you may be interested in our Cultural Immersion Projects. Alternatively, read our full list of projects for internships abroad.

What will I gain from an international media internship?

A Journalism internship abroad gives you skills that prepare you for your next stage of education and career. You’ll also get a unique experience that you can talk about at interviews.


Here are just some of the benefits that our previous interns talk about:


  • Soft skills like teamwork, communication, leadership, resilience, organising, planning, and time management.
  • Hands-on journalism skills and a portfolio of work.
  • The ability to work and empathise with people of different cultures and backgrounds, helping to develop a ‘global mindset’.
  • Confidence from pushing past your comfort zone.

All of the above will enhance your CV, UCAS applications, and your personal development.

How are Projects Abroad’s Journalism internships different?

At Projects Abroad, our first aim is to benefit the communities we work in. You can be assured that your internship is ethical and well supported. Here’s just a few elements of our work that set it apart from other internship programmes:


Be fully supported by staff


On these projects, you’ll work alongside professionals. This is a real opportunity to engage with real reporters and learn the tricks of the trade as they chase down stories and put together content. Your questions will be welcome and your contributions will be valued.


Projects that have an impact


All our projects are well researched, targeted and sustainable. We aim to make a difference to the local community for the long term.
