The integrated traineeship

BA students do not spend their last year of studying at university but work with a media organisation. During this traineeship, they apply the skills and knowledge they have acquired over the past three years. They work as reporters and editors with one of our media partners: a television or radio station, a newspaper or web-based media. During this year, the trainees stay in touch with the institute and return several times for seminars to reflect on and complement their professional experience.

Among our media partners are German public broadcasters ZDF, ARD and Deutsche Welle, national newspapers like Handelsblatt and Süddeutsche Zeitung, the online platform of weekly newspaper die ZEIT and regional radio stations and publishers like Funke Media Group, Lensing-Wolff and DuMont Media Group. Our cooperation provides them with the opportunity to recruit young and yet well-qualified freelancers, editors and reporters.
