Our five-day Summer School, aimed at practising journalists worldwide, is designed to help you better understand the challenges you face in an ever-changing media landscape, and to help you take your career and your work to the next level.
You will take part in seminars on misinformation, revenue models and new technology, as well as discussions about ethics, free speech, democracy and economics and finance. You will also have the opportunity to examine the institute's landmark Digital News Report, which studies patterns of news consumption in 38 markets. You will also attend dinners, networking evenings and cultural talks, aimed at creating a global conversation between journalists from a range of countries.
We run our Summer School on two different weeks during 2020.
- From Monday 6 to Friday 10 July.
- From Monday 7 to Friday 11 September.
The cost of the programme is £1,100 without accommodation. We can offer accommodation for five nights in a University of Oxford college room for £450. Lunch and refreshments are provided to all participants throughout the course. Some evening dinners are also included. Travel expenses are not included. Organisations and foundations are welcome to sponsor individuals who they feel will benefit from this programme.
