Journalism Internship in Singapore

An international journalism internship in Singapore takes place at media organizations like newspaper publications, magazine publications, digital media agencies, broadcast media houses like TV or radio, etc. The internship is designed to give you exposure to the usual tasks of a journalist, such as creating and managing engaging content to be published or broadcast, investigating and researching news stories, conducting interviews, managing social media channels of the company, preparing press releases, developing scripts, etc. An International journalism internship in Singapore effectively puts you in the shoes of a journalist, meaning all the work that you’ll do and all the experience you’ll get in the process would be very much real-like.


Media is a major industry in Singapore, and is spread across areas like print, publishing, digital and IT media, and broadcasting. There is a good presence of both local and foreign media in the country.

There is some censorship imposed by the government on the local media content produced as well as on the media content that’s available from abroad. Despite of the governmental regulations governing the mass media industry, the industry has a lot of learning to offer in terms of practicing international journalism.


Past AIP Journalism interns have been involved and worked on the following projects:


  • Creating and developing content for the organization’s website and social media platforms.
  • Editing and proofreading copies from third parties and repurposing content from the web.
  • Creating and implementing content strategies and promoting the organization online through social media.
  • Generating ideas for branded content for clients across social accounts on all platforms.
  • Developing social and content calendars, and arranging/organizing creative meetings.


Note that all AIP interns are given a personal supervisor who will train, monitor and guide you throughout your international internship experience.


Internship tasks will vary from company to company, as well as intern to intern. These are only examples of tasks that were carried out from previous interns.
