The German Embassy in London is offering a trip to Berlin and Leipzig for UK-based journalists at the beginning of their careers.

The trip will take place from 28 August to 2 September 2022 and give participants an overview of Germany’s diverse media landscape.

It will also provide an opportunity to work in Berlin or Leipzig on a media piece about UK-German relations.

The German Foreign Office will cover the majority of costs (including flights, accommodation and meals).

The tour will be conducted in English.

Who can apply?

Early-career professional journalists from the UK working in all fields of print, online and broadcast media with a few years’ professional experience in journalism and an interest in UK-German relations.

A panel of judges from the German Embassy London will nominate candidates to participate in the tour. The final decision lies with the German Foreign Office.
