Deutsche Welle Radio Internships for Australian Journalists

DW-RADIO has been offering two internships a year to talented radio journalists from Australia since 2000. The interns work for six months in the Features Department of DW-RADIO’s English Service, based in Bonn.


Do you have what it takes to be a DW-RADIO intern?

Deutsche Welle covers their airfare to and from Germany and pays them a training salary of around $2,500 a month.

The interns are all volunteers from community radio stations belonging to the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA). At Deutsche Welle, they learn to become professionals.

Many of the CBAA internship winners have stayed on at Deutsche Welle – either on staff or as a freelancer.

To be successful, an applicant will:

  • be an experienced and committed community radio broadcaster with some journalistic training and experience;
  • be able to demonstrate an interest in European/German issues; and understand, read and speak German (or be ready to attend an intensive German language course prior to commencing the internship);
  • have a university degree.

    Since 2006, DW-WORLD (DW's online service) has also been offering two internships.
