The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has launched a paid intern scheme to place six successful postgraduate journalism students with the data journalism teams at some of the UK’s leading media outlets.

Students who are on a UK postgrad journalism course, or graduated in the previous academic year from a postgrad course, can apply for a month-long internship at:

BBC News Data and Visual Journalism Unit – London

BBC Data Journalism Unit – Birmingham

Trinity Mirror data journalism team – Manchester

Telegraph data journalism team – London

Press Association data journalism team – London

ONS Digital Visual.ONS team – Newport

Students will take up their internship between July and August, and will receive £2,500 in expenses.

All candidates will need to be prepared to accept an offer at any of the media outlets and no preference can be given to location.
