About the The Architectural Review’s paid internship programme
The Architectural Review is the world’s leading international architecture magazine. Since it was founded in 1896, the AR has striven to place itself at the vanguard of architectural culture and production inspiring architects to think more deeply of architecture and its relationship to the wider world.
An internship at the AR is about learning what goes into creating a magazine of its calibre. Interns are based in our office in London and work with the editors to put together the publication. The role involves working across all elements of the magazine in print, talking to architects and working with them on their drawings as well as research and independent writing. An increasingly critical part of the AR and an internship role is working across digital platforms in publishing films, podcasts and articles.
AR internships are paid six-month, full-time placements suitable for part one and two architecture students who are able to work independently and as part of a team with knowledge of web design and architectural software. Up to three months in architectural journalism can form part of your PEDR quarterly record, which goes towards your professional qualification as an architect. We do not offer part time internships.
We are not currently recruiting for the AR internship programme. We will next be recuiting in August 2014.
WHAT OUR PREVIOUS INTERNS HAVE TO SAY…
‘My internship at the AR was extremely fun and rewarding. It was a steep learning curve, but it was made easy and enjoyable by the people we worked with. The office was a great place to have my first experience of magazine work, with a variety of day-to-day tasks and the chance to write both online and printed articles. Everyone was willing to help, and answer any questions.
It gave me a good chance to catch up on all the most recent developments in the architectural world (crucial for my course)and it was brilliant to be able to view London Design Week and London Fashion week from the ‘inside’!

‘I was really pleasantly surprised to be given so much significant work (feeling that I was making a real contribution to the team) and being trusted. It was great to be asked opinions on things and be allowed to take initiatives even though they were just small things but it made the job feel very real and gave asense of pride that makes you want to do really well.
The job also allowed me to acquire a range of skills that I wasn’t expecting but which will probably prove very useful in the future.’
