KCSC internships offer our students to get involved in the centre’s activities. The students assist in organising different events, running centre’s social networks and editing our students’ blog.
KCSC Interships 2016-2017
“I worked as an intern with King’s Centre for Strategic Communication while completing an MA at the Department of War Studies, from 2016-2017, and am currently starting my career with the Irish Foreign Ministry. Being a part of the KCSC team afforded me many opportunities, and really enhanced my academic and professional profile.
Under the supervision of the KCSC team, I was involved with the organisation of several high-profile events – for example with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and NATO. It allowed me to gain valuable experience in event organisation and project management. Further to this it gave me an excellent opportunity to network with professionals – from government, military, academic and corporate backgrounds – who have a lifetime of experience in this field.
At all times I felt valued by the KCSC team who assigned to me many responsibilities and tasks, always in a friendly, helpful and supportive manner. To be a part of the KCSC team would be an excellent opportunity for any student who wants to be exposed to an array of individuals while also gaining valuable experience for their professional career.”
“I interned with KCSC while studying an MA in the Department of War Studies in 2016-2017. Working with KCSC enabled me to gain an insight into the organisation and preparation of collaborative workshops and conferences. Furthermore, interning with KCSC gave me an invaluable opportunity to engage with individuals from the public, private and third sectors. Being involved with KCSC allowed me to listen to some fascinating speakers and to see how challenges facing strategic communicators are approached by professionals and academics in the UK and abroad. I would definitely recommend getting involved with KCSC should the opportunity arise!”
