Universitas is one of Norway’s biggest student newspapers, in print and online. We cover student news in Oslo, for schools connected to the Student Welfare Organisation of Oslo and Akershus (SiO). For over 70 years, Universitas has been an important hub for student-driven media, as well as for the greater Norwegian media landscape, with many talented writers, photographers, and designers getting their start here.
Now, Universitas has started an all-English section: Inter Universitas. Here, international students can find local news geared toward them.
We are now hiring writers, copy editors, translators (Norwegian to English), and photographers who will contribute to this section. We’re looking for people who have a feel for the international student community of Oslo, or who want to get involved and find out what we should be reporting on. If you are an international student with an interest in media, this is the workplace for you.
All Universitas employees are paid for their work.
Some experience in writing and/or photography. English does not have to be your first language.
Some understanding of written and spoken Norwegian is preferred. However, Inter Universitas journalists are not required to write in Norwegian.
An ability to work independently, to track down sources, and be bold with article and photo ideas.
Send a CV and a short email about why you’re fit for the job to Indigo Trigg-Hauger, Inter Universitas editor, at email@example.com. Deadline: January 15.
Interviews will be held during the week of January 22.
