The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is calling on journalists worldwide to apply for the Journalism Fellowship Programme, 2015-2016 edition, which it said aims at enabling mid-career journalists to improve their knowledge, and study issues important to their professional development in greater depth.
Mid-career journalists can be defined as those who have at least five years’ full time professional journalistic experience.
Around 25 journalists from around the globe study in Oxford each year on Fellowships of either three, six or nine months, covering one, two or all three terms of the academic year, the Reuters Institute said.
Requirements of the Journalism Felllowship Programme include conducting academic research and actively participating in the activities of the Reuters Institute.
Journalist Fellows are expected to submit a substantial research paper of publishable, academic quality (approximately between 8 000 and 10 000 words).
Each Fellow is assigned a supervisor, usually an Oxford academic specialising in the journalists’ chosen subject, to advise them on their research.
Fellows are required to present their research findings in a seminar open to the University.
Note that a high level of spoken and written English are essential
