Admission

Your passport to a global degree

Your passport to global studies

The Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation welcomes applications from graduate students around the world. The programme offers specialisations at University of Amsterdam, University of Hamburg, City, University of London and Swansea University.

In regards to how Brexit will affect the programme, we want to confirm that Swansea and City are both committed partners and will remain so for the duration of the Mundus programme 2019-2021. Within that timeframe, current and future students will not be affected by the UK refer­endum.

Applications are open each year from the start of November until early January.

You can apply for admission to the Mundus Journalism programme and for a Mundus scholarship within the same application process. If you want to apply for a Mundus scholarship, please tick off which scholarship category you are applying for – Category A or Category B – within the Online Registration.

The Mundus Journalism Consortium receives around 500 applications each year. For course start in September, the Mundus Journalism Consortium will select a group of 80-90 students. On average, half of each new intake is made up of students from within the European Union, with the rest of the participants collectively representing almost every continent and region of the world.

As we have 18 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2019-21 programme, we expect that 22% will be offered admission as scholarship students, while 78% will be offered admission as self-funded students. Applicants who applied for a scholarship will also be offered the possibility of self-funded admission if selected by the Consortium for admission, but not for a scholarship.

We inform all applicants by email whether they have been offered admission to the programme or not, no later than April each year. If you are offered admission, you will be asked to confirm if you accept the admission offer (with or without scholarship) within the week after you receive the email. We operate with this relatively short deadline so that we can offer admission to another applicant, if you should decide to reject the offer.
