What we offer beyond scholarships

Studying in the Mundus Journalism programme comes with a lot of benifts beyond stipend and scholarships. You will enjoy the peace of mind of having both health care and civil liability insurance fully covered throughout the two-year program. After graduation, you'll be well-prepared for a successful career in any journalism-related field worldwide. You'll also benefit from the unique advantage of being eligible for a work visa in both Denmark and the country where you completed your second-year studies.

Free health and civil liability insurance throughout the 2-year programme

At Mundus Journalism, we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our students. As part of this commitment, we provide mandatory health and accident insurance coverage to all our students throughout the two-year programme. These insurance requirements align with the standards established for Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses under the Erasmus Mundus Programme 2024-2029 and cover risks related to health, accidents, death, permanent invalidity, and civil responsibility.

A working visa for two countries after graduation

As a Mundus Journalism graduate you will benefit from being able to obtain a working visa both in Denmark and in the country of your second year studies.

Here is an overview of the general options available:

Denmark

3-year job seeking period granted with your study permit: Denmark offers a "Post-Graduation Work Permit" (PGWP) that allows non-EU students who have completed a qualifying degree to stay and work in Denmark for 3 years after graduation. When you are accepted to the programme, the Danish Immigration will automatically grant you a 3-year job seeking period with your study permit (if your passport validity allows it).

Netherlands

Orientation Year for Highly Educated Persons: The Netherlands offers an "Orientation Year for Highly Educated Persons" visa. This allows graduates from Erasmus Mundus programmes to stay in the country for up to one year to search for employment or start a business. During this period, graduates have unrestricted access to the Dutch labor market.

Germany

Job Seeker Visa: Graduates from German universities can apply for a "Job Seeker Visa" that allows them to stay in Germany for up to 18 months to search for employment. Once they find a job, they can convert this visa into a work residence permit.

Czech Republic

Employee Card: Graduates who find a job in the Czech Republic can apply for an "Employee Card", which is a work permit. The employer usually sponsors this card. Graduates may also be eligible for the "Long-Term Residence Permit" if they meet certain criteria.

United Kingdom

Graduate Route (Post-Study Work Visa): The UK offers a "Graduate Route" visa that allows international graduates to stay in the UK for up to 2 years after completing their studies to work or look for work. During this period, there are no restrictions on the type of work they can do.

  
Please note that immigration policies can change, and eligibility criteria may vary based on the job market conditions in each country. It's crucial to check with the respective immigration authorities for the most up-to-date and country-specific information on post-graduation work options and visa requirements. Additionally, there might be pathways to permanent residency or further work visas for individuals who secure employment during their initial post-graduation period.
