Journalism School

We combine the advantages of a traditional journalism school with those of a classic traineeship. With us, you get the most progressive training with the best chances of a subsequent permanent position in an inspiring environment.

Tech Program

For us, technology and journalism belong together. We train tech talents who drive media innovation and strengthen the future of digital journalism. With us, you work hands-on in one of Europe’s leading media and tech companies.


We make Axel Springer employees future-proof. Our learning and further training programs are innovative and technology-supported. Anyone who wants to deepen their existing skills or learn new ones will find the right partner in us.


Together with large tech companies, we work in interdisciplinary teams of journalism students and tech students on innovative projects at the interface between journalism and technology.

“We are making independent journalism future-proof. Interdisciplinary work is an important key. For us, technology and journalism belong together. It becomes magical when we combine the best of both worlds and something new emerges from it.”

Reports of Resistance

The five-part video series shows journalists and activists who have been threatened and imprisoned for their commitment to justice. The team used AI to get better and faster results. The technology was used where it made sense in a journalistic context. 

Mind Stories

The vision behind Mind Stories is to provide a comprehensive insight into the complexity of mental health which at the moment is one of the most popular topics on social media. To deliver our content, we produced smart and informative video content supported by Snapchat’s AR lenses.

it's kosher habibi

We found that Jewish-Muslim friendships are not only possible, but that they exist in a wide variety of age groups and in a wide variety of forms. We met four pairs of friends and asked them what makes their friendship special and whether there is any truth to the prejudices against Jews and Muslims.

Career with apprenticeship

This series is about exciting, special and interesting apprenticeships. Because even without a degree, you can make a career start! Trainees and apprentices who already have both feet on the ground take readers into their everyday lives, show them what they do and tell them what they can do after completing their training.


They do everything to save Europe.
Climate change is leading to extreme weather events in Europe with increasing frequency. Storms, floods and heat leave suffering and destruction in their wake. Across Europe, our team met 29 HEROPEANS, people who don’t give up after their personal climate catastrophe.

Words & Weapons

A war is raging in Ukraine – also over the truth. Missiles and tanks are accompanied by lies and propaganda. The word becomes a weapon, or it is banned. This project shows how international media professionals report on the war in Ukraine.
