For the 29th Summer Universiade in Taipei City, Chinese Taipei (19 to 30 August, 2017) and for the 4th time in Summer Universiade history, FISU once again selected 12 aspiring young journalists from the five continents to come the Games in Taipei where they will receive specialized media training.


The Young Reporters’ Programme aims to include 21 to 25-year-old students or recent graduates in journalism/communications from the five continents right into the middle of the Games for 14 days, with full access to the competition venues and MPC. They will be joined by their peers from Chinese Taipei.


All Young Reporters will undertake both general and specialized training in various aspects of reporting and the coverage of major events such as the Universiade. The course will look at what makes a good human interest story, how to tell it informatively and entertainingly, when to look for more background detail and why accuracy and fairness still remain the cornerstones of reporting.


After three previous editions, in Shenzhen (2011 SU), Kazan (2013 SU) and Gwangju (2015 SU), we have sufficient proof that the FISU YRP is very beneficiary for these aspiring reporters’ future careers, as some alumni have already landed key functions in media and communications such as producer at FOX TV Australia, Director of Communications at a NOC, reporter at the Toronto Star or Press Officer at a NUSF to name a few.
