The Projects Abroad Print, Radio and TV Journalism Internship will expose you to different journalistic approaches and challenges against the backdrop of a new and exciting country.

With a proactive attitude and perseverance, you will be able to work as a journalist, with your own stories and responsibilities, reporting on events in a cultural context a world away from home. You will contribute content, not get the coffee; this is an opportunity to push yourself to become a full member of the team and learn the ins and outs of print or broadcast journalism overseas.


Join our Journalism Internship in Ghana and gain practical experience while learning directly from journalists, reporters, editors, and producers. You can choose to work in print, radio, or television. You’ll be able to produce content about topics you’re interested in while getting a deeper insight into a developing country’s journalism practices.

In Ghana, the media cover a wide range of topics. This gives you the freedom to talk about issues that affect local communities. This internship will add valuable experience to your CV, and you’ll be able to fill your portfolio with interesting examples of your work.

This project accepts interns throughout the year, so you can join on the dates that suit you. You can stay from as little as two weeks. Projects Abroad encourage students to stay longer if possible so you can learn more and make a bigger impact.
