Tuition and scholarships

Tuition fee

The tuition fee for the whole two-year Mundus Journalism master's programme is known to be low compared to other European MA programmes. Furthermore, you will not have to pay the entire amount at admission - instead.

Two-year tuition fee:

  • Non-EU students: €18000
  • EU students: €9000 

The tuition fee will be invoiced in instalments of €4500 prior to each semester. For EU students the tuition fee will be invoiced for the second year of studies only, as there is no tuition for EU students at Danish universities due to national legislation.

Scholarships

Each year we receive around 500 applications and admit up to 90 students. We offer 22 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2020-22 programme, hence, around 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. You can apply for admission to the Mundus Journalism programme and for a Mundus scholarship within the same application process.

Students who have already graduated with a 2-year MA degree cannot receive a Mundus scholarship. However, you can still apply for the programme and be considered for self-funded admission.

We offer two-year Category A scholarships of up to €49,000

You can be considered for a scholarship if:

  • You are NOT a resident of any of the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey or former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
  • You must comply with the 12 months rule, i.e. you cannot have carried out your main activity (studies, work, private visits, tourism, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the European Union Member States, Iceland, Norway or Liechtenstein.
  • You fulfil the admission requirements and selection criteria.

We offer two-year Category B scholarships of up to €40,000

You can be considered for a scholarship if:

  • You ARE a resident of any of the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey or former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
  • You are NOT a resident of any of the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey or former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. BUT you have carried out your main activity (studies, work, private visits, tourism, etc.) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in any of the European Union Member States, Iceland, Norway or Liechtenstein.
  • You fulfil the admission requirements and selection criteria.

Please note that you cannot receive a Category B scholarship while studying at a Mundus Journalism university in your country of residence. E.g. if you live in the Netherlands, you cannot receive a Erasmus Mundus scholarship while specialising in "Politics & Communication" at the University of Amsterdam.

We also offer Erasmus+ stipends of up to €2500

  • All Mundus Journalism students, who do not receive an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, can apply for an Erasmus+ stipend for the second year of their Mundus Journalism studies. So far, all eligible students have received this stipend.
  • Information and assistance on the Erasmus+ stipend will be provided at Aarhus University after course start.

 

General EU rules for Erasmus Mundus scholarships

  • Students fulfilling the eligibility criteria for both Category A and B (students with a double nationality) must select the Category of their choice.
  • Students must have obtained a bachelor's degree before the course start of the Mundus Journalism.
  • Individuals who have already benefited from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship for a master's programme are not eligible for a second scholarship.
  • While students benefit from an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, they cannot benefit from other European Commission grants.

It was a blessing to receive the scholarship and strengthen my links with Europe. The knowledge and experience that I gained through my Mundus master's is irreplaceable. Thank you!
