The JPP is a six-week internship program conducted in Jakarta, Indonesia. The program runs from early January to mid-February. It is open to students of journalism, media and communications studies, and cadet journalists. The program is designed to provide participants, who may not necessarily have Indonesian-language skills or experience in Indonesia, with the opportunity to live and work in the dynamic media scene of Jakarta. Through both academic activities and work placements in media organisations, participants will experience workplace journalistic cultures and obtain a taste for the environment in which a foreign correspondent might operate. The placement will give participants the chance to function as a part of the Indonesian media community and put textbook theory and scholarly analysis into practice.
The program consists of a two-week academic program hosted by Atma Jaya Catholic University, followed by a four-week industry placement. The academic program is a mixture of Indonesian language tuition (40 hours) and seminars on industry-relevant themes (20 hours). Host organisations for the month-long industry placement include international news wire services such as ThomsonReuters & AFP, national news bureaus (ABC, The Straits Times), national dailies such as The Jakarta Post and The Jakarta Globe, and major domestic broadcasters and radio stations (MetroTV, Radio68H, Radio Republik Indonesia). Participating host organisations can accommodate the full spectrum of media interests, from online news reporting to lifestyle writing.
