You can apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, or as a self-funded student. The Consortium aims to admit highly qualified students from a wide range of countries and with an equal representation of both genders.

European students who are granted a Mundus scholarship will have to study module 5 and 6 in the spring semester at one of our international partner universities: University of California at Berkeley; University of Technology Sydney; and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Tuition fees

In 2014-16 the fees for the whole two-year course will be: €8,000 for EU nationals and €16,000 for non-EU nationals.


1. Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

The Mundus Journalism Consortium is able to offer a limited number of ‘Erasmus Mundus’ student scholarships for students entering the programme from 2012 – 2016. The scholarships are divided into category A and B scholarships. For the 2015-17 edition of the Mundus Journalism programme the consortium will award:

  • Category A scholarships for third country (non-EU) students.
  • Category A scholarships are expected to be worth €48,000 for the 2015-2017 programme. The fee is subtracted from the scholarship. There is free insurance for Mundus stipend holders.
  • Category B scholarships are expected to be worth €23,000 for the 2015-2017 programme. Category B scholarships can be awarded to any student who does not fulfil the criteria for a category A scholarship. The Category B scholarships are connected to the ‘Study Abroad’ programme at the non-European partners (Please find further details in the application form).

2. Erasmus+ stipends (all students can apply)

All Mundus Journalism students can apply for Erasmus+ stipends for the second year of their Master’s studies, if they have not been granted an Erasmus Mundus scholarship or received Erasmus+ funding within their BA studies. Information and assistance on the Erasmus+ stipends will be provided at Aarhus University after the start of the course. The stipend is about 230 Euros per month for 10 months. So far all eligible students have received this stipend.
