Friends and peers without borders

The Mundus Journalism degree brings together a highly multicultural group of students from around the world. There are usually up to 40 different nationalities within each Mundus Journalism programme, with countries ranging from Bahrain to Bhutan, Nigeria to New Zealand, and Poland to Portugal. This access to a variety of cultures, experiences and personalities is part of what makes being a Mundusian a truly unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Student projects on and off campus

The rich diversity of perspectives and knowledge that each student brings to the programme makes for a lively atmosphere both on and off campus. Mundus Journalism students tend to be very self-motivated and get involved with a huge variety of projects both inside and outside of the universities.

Every year, students put together a Bluebook that contains background information about each student, as well as fun facts about the whole cohort. And, it is no secret that everyone works hard to make their Bluebook even more spectacular than the previous year's.

Beyond this, student initiatives are as varied as the countries they come from. From radio stations to theatre groups, from competitive football teams to start-ups. The opportunities for interaction and idea development within the programme are limitless.

As an extension of their co-curricular activities many of our students write, photograph, record, tweet and blog their way through the programme. Some work for media outlets in their home countries, while others develop their own platforms. Many students also attend academic conferences and publish journal articles from their work, or seek to have their writing and research published in leading news outlets.

Quote from our recent alumni survey
The presence of different nationalities in one classroom is an advantage for all academic fields. For quality journalism, it's crucial. I learnt to think outside my "filter", and most of all, listen to other people's perspectives. As much as I traveled, my surroundings have never been as international and diverse as during my "Mundus time". I still miss it and try to apply the Mundus spirit everywhere I can.
