Are you a mid-career journalist with a minimum of five years’ experience? Would you like to deepen your understanding of the global media industry at one of the world’s most prestigious universities?

The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, part of the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, runs a series of funded Fellowships open to journalists from different corners of the globe in a range of specialisms.

Applications are open for the following programmes:

The Thomson Reuters Foundation Fellowship

This fellowship welcomes applications from all parts of the world, including sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and South East Asia.

Mona Megalli Fellowship

This fellowship is open to journalists from the Middle East.

Successful applications spend one, two or three terms in Oxford, as part of the university. You’ll gain in-depth knowledge and insight into the rapidly changing media industry as you attend seminars given by high-level industry experts, academics and thought leaders. And you’ll work with an experienced supervisor, to produce a piece of academic research of publishable quality.

You’ll also expand your network as you work alongside a diverse peer group made up of journalists from all over the world. Trips to news organisations, which in the past have included Thomson Reuters, The Financial Times, The BBC and The Guardian, mean you’ll gain insights into how many of the UK’s industry leaders are evolving their practise in a dynamic world.
