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 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.

Two-year tuition fee:

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

* Due to Danish legislations, Danish students can apply to get the tuition fee covered by the 'Udlandsstipendieordning'

 

Erasmus Mundus Scholarships

Each year we receive between 400 and 500 applications and admit up to 80-90 students. We expect to offer 23 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2022-24 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's MA degree cannot receive a Mundus scholarship. However, you can still apply for the programme and be considered for self-funded admission.

The Erasmus Mundus scholarships cover tuition fees, insurance, a contribution to student travel and installation costs, as well as a monthly subsistence allowance for the entire duration of the study programme.

We offer 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for students from Partner Countries of €49,000 (€47,000 if travel distance from place of residence is less than 4,000 km): CATEGORY A ON THE APPLICATION FORM

You can be considered for this type of scholarship if:

  • You are NOT a resident of any of the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Serbia 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 EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Serbia or former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
  • You fulfil the admission requirements and selection criteria.

We offer 3 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for students from Programme Countries of €35,000: CATEGORY B ON THE APPLICATION FORM

You can be considered for this type of scholarship if:

  • You ARE a resident of any of the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Serbia or former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Please note that you cannot receive a ‘Category B’ scholarship if you choose a specialisation university in your country of residence. E.g. if your country of residence is the Netherlands, you cannot receive an Erasmus Mundus scholarship while specialising in "Politics & Communication" at the University of Amsterdam for your second year of studies.


Erasmus+ stipends 

We also offer Erasmus+ stipends of up to €3500 to students not awarded a Mundus scholarship:

  • All Mundus Journalism students going to the specialisation universities within the EU, 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. However, the EU has updated the requirements in accordance with the Covid-19 pandemic developments
  • 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 scholarship categories (having both an EU and a non-EU citizenship) can select the Category of their choice.
  • 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.
  • Students must have obtained a bachelor's degree before course start of the Erasmus Mundus programme.

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!
