Journalism internship at Affairs Today (Online)

Affairs Today is an independently run online student journal headquartered in Glasgow, Scotland. Our staff comprises student journalists from around the globe.

As students, it can be difficult to deliver a robust, professional writing portfolio in order to get a competitive internship or a post-grad job. However, the problem that most students encounter is that they need experience in order to get experience and they have no way to get that experience. Becoming a contributor for Affairs Today can help you build a diverse portfolio because you’ll be able to write on topics of your choice, given that they align with Affair Today’s values and existing content.
