Its purpose is to allow journalists to tackle subjects in greater depth than is possible under deadline pressure.
Around 25 journalists from around the globe study in Oxford each year on Fellowships of either three, six or nine months, covering one, two or all three terms of the academic year.
Requirements of RISJ:
Fellows will also be able to approach other faculty members to supplement and inform their research, and are entitled to access to the wealth of information held in the Bodleian Library and other Oxford University facilities and resources.
They will be allocated membership of Green Templeton College with Visiting Scholar status, including dining and other rights, and as such are strongly encouraged to attend university seminars, lectures and classes on all relevant subjects.
Of course, Fellows are also warmly invited to participate in the numerous academic and extracurricular activities of the group of mid-career international journalists based here in the RISJ offices in Norham Gardens.
There are numerous specialist facilities within the university, such as regional centres for African, Middle Eastern, South Asian, Eastern and Western European, Japanese and Chinese Studies, and Fellows are more than welcome to take advantage of the University’s language laboratory and computer services.
