What is Future News Worldwide?

Applications for Future News Worldwide have now closed. For information on other British Council opportunities please see Study and Work Abroad.

Future News Worldwide is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world's leading media organisations. The aim is to support young people to develop a wide range of journalism skills and to establish the UK as a global leader in the nurturing of young journalists and media figures.

Each year we bring together 100 of the world's most talented, motivated and passionate student journalists to attend an intensive media training programme. Participants receive exclusive coaching from world-leading editors, broadcasters, writers and reporters, and see how publishers around the world are using technology to find stories and bring them to life like never before.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Future News Worldwide conference will not take place in London as planned in 2020.The programme will return in 2021.
