First Class: The Classic Traineeship

Radio, television, Internet -- the classic traineeship offers young journalists internationally-oriented editorial training in three media.


During their 18 months training, trainees go through various German language departments of the Deutsche Welle in Bonn and Berlin. Their traineeship may also include stints at DW Studio Brussels or DW-Hauptstadtstudio Berlin, our studio overlooking parliament in Germany's capital city.

A special highlight of this traineeship is a one-month external posting. Each trainee is free to choose their own destination: whether it's CNN in Atlanta or Namibia's German radio service -- anything is possible.
