Eligibility Requirements (Criteria)

  • Applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent) in a relevant subject in order to be admitted to the Mundus Journalism programme. Students who have not yet graduated from their BA degree can still apply, but documentation of the bachelor’s degree must be forwarded to Aarhus University by August to complete the enrolment process prior to course start in September.
  • Subjects within bachelor’s programmes in Arts/Humanities and Social Sciences are by default considered to be relevant.
  • Applicants who have completed other programmes, but whose qualifications are deemed by the Consortium to be relevant and adequate, may also be offered admission.
  • To ensure that the best candidates are admitted, the Consortium has decided to give priority to academic merit; candidates will only be admitted if they have an above-average bachelor’s degree (a minimum of an above-average class mark/GPA is expected).
  •  Students must therefore be able to read academic textbooks and articles, take part in classroom discussions and lectures, and undertake written work and exams in English. Hence, they require a high command of English.
  • Language tests
    • IELTS Academic test with a band score of 7,0 and a minimum score of 6.0 in each category**
    • TOEFL internet-based test with a score of at least 100***
    • Cambridge ESOL exams: Certificate of Proficiency (CPE) or Certificate in Advanced English with the grade A or at least 190 points on the Cambridge English-scale****
  • Due to the nature of Mundus Journalism programme, journalistic skills are required prior to course start, hence we ask for at least 3 months’ journalistic experience.
