What Do DIS Student Videographers Do?
You will be trained and work closely with the Marketing & Communications department to conceptualize, produce, and edit videos that will be used on DIS social media, website, and advertisement. You will have a lot of creative freedom and collaboration with the team. As visual storytellers, you assist us in documenting student life at DIS – everywhere from the quiet moments during a morning commute to DIS to the back of classrooms to capture a faculty member’s lecture. See below for deliverables.
Why Should You Apply?
- You’ll build your skill set and portfolio abroad, and your videos will be used in DIS website, advertising, and social media
- Your time spent with the Marketing & Communications Department can be noted as a non-credit ambassadorship on your future resume, and at the end of the semester, you can request a letter of recommendation or LinkedIn recommendation to build your resume
- You’ll join a community of creative students collaborating with the Marketing & Communications Department
- We’ll invite you to various events where as a group, you will share your videos and get feedback both from a marketing and videography perspective
- We host workshops, professional development opportunities, and social events throughout the semester
What Are We Looking For?
- You have previous experience in creative short visual storytelling
- You have previous experience in creating content for social media platforms such as Instagram and TikTok
- You are a collaborative team member and are open to feedback
- Good time management and organization skills, as you will be expected to complete the video assignment alongside your academic and social commitments
- You have an interest in marketing, advertising, and social media

- Submitting regular video drops throughout the semester, where you are expected to document Study Tours, Field Studies, classrooms, and DIS events as a fly-on-the-wall
- Taking over social media accounts (primarily on Instagram Stories)
This position is compensated with a stipend. Students who fulfill the requirements of the position will be paid in two installments: in the middle of the semester, and at the end. The stipend is 2200 SEK (or approximately 200 USD, depending on currency exchange).
