This scheme offers scientists, social scientists, clinicians or engineers the opportunity to spend two to six weeks working at the heart of a media organisation such as The Guardian, the BBC, The Times or the Huffington Post, mentored by professional journalists.

After your placement you will attend the British Science Festival, where you will gain valuable experience working alongside journalists from a range of media organisations in the BSA’s dedicated Press Centre.
