Internship Program

Applications for the Gazette's 2018 internship program are now closed.

The Gazette runs an internship program every winter starting in January and continuing until April. Each section of the Gazette (news, culture, sports, photo, graphics, copy and Western TV) runs an internship program. The opinions section does not accept interns. Interns dedicate one day per week to coming in and contributing to the section.

Over the course of the program, interns will receive regular training from Gazette editors and journalism industry professionals. The internship program is a valuable experience for students interested in learning more about the craft and many interns go on to become editors in their section.

Applicants do not need prior experience working in a newsroom and class material is sufficient as work samples.

Timeline 

Successful applicants will hear back sometime during the week of Jan. 15 to 19. The internship program officially begins Jan. 22 and concludes when exams start in April.

Eligibility

All Western and affiliate college undergraduate students are eligible to apply for the program.

If you're a club executive or work with the University Students' Council or affiliate councils, please email editor@westerngazette.ca to confirm your eligibility for the program.
