If you’re a student looking to gain experience of the media, perhaps you’d like to join us in Reykjavík on a study internship.

The Reykjavík Grapevine is Iceland’s leading English-language publication, covering arts and culture, news and current affairs, travel and much more. Interns are an integral part of our small team, joining us at our Reykjavík office and getting involved in all that we do.

As well as our online publishing and social media content, The Reykjavík Grapevine comprises a monthly print magazine, a quarterly city guide, a burgeoning YouTube channel and an online shop. So this is a great opportunity to experience a busy publishing operation which encompases multimedia journalism, magazine production, photography, video content creation, social media and online retail. And cuddling lambs, (subject to availability).

Brittnee Kiner—on the right above, with fellow intern and lamb-cuddler Alina Maurer—completed her programme with us earlier this year. She says: “Interning at the Reykjavík Grapevine was an incredible opportunity to write alongside professional journalists. I got the chance to author travel articles, and I co-presented a news video at a volcano while it was erupting! I am so grateful for the chance to pursue my passion in such a positive, encouraging environment.”

Plus, of course, you get to hang with Pollý!

We are open to internships which span any or all of our areas of activity, and we invite you to express which ones interest you when you apply. These internships are intended to form part of a student’s existing higher education study programme, or an experiential programme such as Erasmus. More information is available by emailing
