This unique internship is dedicated to students of journalism, the arts, social and physical sciences, and anyone preparing for a career in mainstream or highbrow journalism. The programme covers feature writing, critique, editing, sub-editing, photography, podcasting, and editorial convention, in a cutting-edge setting. It is carried out mainly online, with some exceptions, and it is open to aspiring journalists anywhere in the world. 

PURPOSE: To help interns develop and refine their journalism skills and gain experience for future employment in the media; to offer student interns a credible opportunity to earn valuable credits towards their academic courses; to give interns access to notable people, and cutting-edge arts and culture events and processes. In turn, Chiaroscuro Magazine benefits by having new writing for its audiences, while gaining a wider perspective on arts and culture, internationally. 

ELIGIBILITY: You may be a sixth former, undergraduate, or graduate student, or a worker hoping to pivot into journalism. You must have a strong command of English, and have access to a computer or word processing equipment, the Internet, and an email account, WhatsApp or Skype, if possible.

HOW TO APPLY: Student applicants are usually referred by a tutor, but direct enquiries are welcome. However, all student applications must be endorsed by a relevant tutor or faculty administrator. All Non‐student candidates should apply directly to the programme with samples of work (see form).
