Due to the Erasmus Mundus legislation the tuition fee for the whole two-year Mundus Journalism Masters programme is very competitive compared to other inter(national) MA-programmes. The tuition fee is €9.000/€18.000 for the whole two-year programme for EU/non-EU nationals respectively.
As the Mundus Journalism programme is selected by the EU to receive Mundus scholarships (€34.000/€47.000) for EU/non-EU nationals respectively***), the Mundus Journalism Consortium is able to offer a number of scholarships for the programmes running in 2017-2020. All Mundus Journalism students, who do not receive an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, can apply for an Erasmus+ stipend for the second year of the Mundus Journalism studies.
Each year we receive around 500 applications and admit 80-90 students. As we have 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2017-19 programme we expect that 25% will be offered admission as scholarship students, while 75% will be offered admission as self-funded students. Only applicants being superior in all categories can expect to be offered admission as scholarship students. Students who already have a 2-year MA-degree cannot be granted a Mundus scholarship.
Some countries also offer Erasmus+ Master Degree Loans for Mundus Journalism students.

Information and assistance on the Erasmus+ stipends will be provided at Aarhus University after course start. The stipend is about 230 Euros per month for 10 months. So far all eligible students have received this stipend.
Erasmus+ Master Degree Loans are EU-guaranteed loans with favourable pay-back terms that can help you finance your Master programme.
The scheme is designed to support postgraduate students and protect them from student hardship with social safeguards including:
