If you are searching for a journalism internship abroad, OrangLight offers ideal opportunities for journalism students, communications students and individuals with an interest in writing and/or publishing. All of our journalism and communications internships are  with a variety of media centers.

OrangLight offers a range of journalism internship placement opportunities

As a participant of one of our journalism internships abroad, you will gain experience working within the media industry while producing work that will help you develop your professional portfolio.

South Africa is home to a very active and outspoken media that takes its role as the “fourth estate” quite seriously. During Apartheid, the government routinely censored media content if it contained any sympathies towards the anti-Apartheid movement. Today, freedom of press is alive and well, and journalists regularly launch vocal opposition to controversial government practices.

Several of South Africa’s leading magazines and editorial offices offer journalism internship opportunities with local publications such as outdoor magazines and travel guides. Any journalism student or graduate should consider applying to our program because we have internships that will satisfy most majors. Journalism and communications internships include the following:

  • Copy writing

  • News editorial

  • Magazine

  • Radio

  • Photojournalism

  • Broadcast journalism

  • Documentary Film

  • Online media

Why you should consider a  journalism internship:

  • Work with South African journalists and communications professionals.

  • Get your work published and build your professional portfolio.

  • Live and work in a country with a wealth of subject matter.

  • Spend much of your time exploring the city as opposed to working behind a desk.

  • Establish international professional contacts.

  • Receive an internship placement that directly relates to your career objectives within the field of journalism and communications.
