Journalism Fellowship Programme for International Students in Reuters/Oxford UK: Apply!

Deadline: January 31, 2013

Applications are now open for the 2013/14 Journalism Fellowship Programme at the Reuters Institute, for mid-career journalists.

The Journalism Fellowship Programme at Oxford offers a practical form of professional assistance to established and mid-career journalists. Its purpose is to allow journalists to tackle subjects in greater depth than is possible under deadline pressure.

Around 25 journalists from around the globe study in Oxford each year on Fellowships of either three, six or nine months, covering one, two or all three terms of the academic year.
Fellows may join the Institute in October, January or April.

Applicants must have a minimum of five years’ experience in any branch of journalism and good spoken and written English. The programme enables visiting journalists from around the world to do research in Oxford for a period of three, six or nine months.

Fellows enjoy an opportunity to critically reflect upon their profession, to research a subject of their choice under the supervision of an academic specialising in that area, and to enjoy the breadth of academic, cultural and social life at the University of Oxford.

This is not a degree programme but fellows are expected to write a substantial piece of research of publishable quality.
