CityTravelReview (CTR projects) – 2017/2018 project member positions in Berlin, Germany (with language learning element), and Edinburgh Scotland (without language learning). (3 weeks, 1 month & 2 month dates available) The number of posts are limited and the applications close once the final team member has been selected which can be at any stage during the year.

Each year City Travel Review offers young people the opportunity to join their study/work experiences engaging in real-world working placement projects. Project members are usually undergraduates, post graduates, working people taking a short sabbatical or those taking time off before or after college/university. CTR attracts young people that come from different backgrounds who are looking to gain valuable and diverse working experience, to learn a language from scratch or to improve on foreign language skills already acquired (Berlin Project only).

Many project members wish to gain a fresh perspective on working life, add to their CV/resume or portfolio and many are looking to make a change in their career path by moving into industries relating to ; history/arts/culture/language/tourism/media/communication/PR/journalism/language/research/ travel writing/photography/graphic design as well as many similar creative areas.

The project brief is to research and produce an online travel guide review to appeal to young people new to the city. All aspects of the task are undertaken by project members under the guidance of an experienced media team. CTR establishes working groups of members with complementary expertise so there is the chance of sharing and learning new skills. Whatever level of linguistic or media and research skills you have, you will be well supported. The main criteria is that you love travel, enjoy learning, can demonstrate initiative, can work efficiently in a team, are well organised and have the ability to communicate effectively.

Project members regularly attend team workshops and language classes (Berlin only). In the afternoons, they gain interactive hands-on experience working as travel researchers visiting places of interest often away from the usual tourist trail. The team encourages project members to immerse themselves in the culture and real-life situations to gain an in-depth perspective on what makes the city and its inhabitants tick. Typical project related activities include exploring local districts, visiting entertainment spots of the city, delving into the delights and legends in the old towns, as well as checking out the main historical parts, attending walking tours, visits to museums, galleries and other popular landmarks of the city.


Wherever you are in your life, a CTR project will prove to be a valuable, unforgettable experience. You will be mixing with young like-minded people from all over the world who are looking to push personal boundaries, refresh their interests, open up new opportunities, expand their cultural education and have a great deal of fun in the process.
