Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange Internship Programme

An exciting opportunity for Media and Communications students who are keen to develop their knowledge, technical skills and experience.

The internship broadened my knowledge of what it means to do research, expanded my knowledge of the field…, and introduced new perspectives from which to study

We are launching our departmental annual research theme, titled COVID-19: A Communication Crisis – Ethics, Privacy, Inequalities. As MSc students you are invited to now express interest for participation in this project as part of our Media@LSE research intership scheme.

The project will be a collaboration between faculty, PhD researchers and Master’s students and will involve the conduct of research across countries on the representation of COVID-19, especially in relation to inequalities. If you join us, you will be invited to engage with the analysis of media in your country of origin and in your native language. We will offer training in analysing the material and we will be working in teams throughout the conduct of the project in the next two terms.

Your engagement with the project should not take more than 2 hours a week on average.

Please fill in the form below to express interest.


As part of the programme, Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange interns will each receive training and guidance according to the specific requirements of individual projects.

This may include gaining hands-on experience of employing a variety of research methods, including content analysis and visual analysis.

Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange interns may also acquire an array of other research-related skills, including skills associated with research dissemination and public engagement activities. 


Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange interns work in collaboration with a small team of MSc students in supporting time-limited, faculty-led seed projects that directly or indirectly link to public engagement and knowledge exchange activities.

Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange interns are directly supported by the Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange Intern Coordinator, who will serve as a point of contact and provide tailored training in relevant research methods and other research-related skills.

Media@LSE Knowledge Exchange internships are unpaid. Time commitments for individual projects will therefore be limited in order to facilitate equitability of access to the programme.

Students on Tier 4 visas should familiarise themselves with rights and restrictions regarding work. More information regarding Tier 4 visa restrictions can be found here.
