Students share their internship experiences
The JMSC faculty’s networks with leading international media organisations have helped build one of the most dynamic journalism internship programmes in the world.
While many MJ students work in Hong Kong and cities in mainland China such as Beijing and Shanghai, they have also had opportunities to intern in around the Asia Pacific region and worldwide in places as Jakarta, Manila, Singapore, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore, Karachi, Melbourne, Cape Town, Copenhagen, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia and Washington DC.
In many cases, these global internships have led to full-time employment.
