Scholarships worth up to €48,000 available for postgraduate global journalism students

Applications for the 2015 Erasmus Mundus course now being accepted

Scholarships worth up to €48,000 are available for students hoping to complete the two-year Erasmus Mundus MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation at City University London and its European partner institutions.

€23,000 grants are being offered to EU applicants and €48,000 grants for non-EU students.

The foundation year of the course is spent in Denmark at Aarhus University and the Danish School of Media and Journalism.

Students can then pick City for their second year of study when deciding the area in which they would like to specialise.

Applications for the next programme, which begins in September 2015, must be submitted by 10th January.

During their year at City, students will have the opportunity to learn from some of the world's leading academics and practitioners as part of the Business and Financial

Journalism specialism.

As well as offering the chance to benefit from the University's academic excellence and world-leading research, the programme allows students to enjoy City's unique international environment with a diverse group of classmates from around the world.

In the recent years, students have come from the USA, Brazil, Thailand, China, Malaysia, Norway, Kyrgyzstan, Peru, Canada, Cambodia, Ukraine, Italy, Mexico, Czech Republic, Malta, India, Germany and Azerbaijan.

Dr Neil Thurman, Course Director for the Erasmus Mundus MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation at City, said: "With the growth of social media and online reporting, the boundaries of journalism are no longer restricted by geography. There is increasing demand for journalists who have the ability to think, report and work on a global basis, for a global audience. These scholarships will help educate the global journalists of tomorrow."

In the foundation year at Aarhus University, students will:

• gain thorough knowledge about the economic, political, social and cultural contexts of globalisation

• creatively apply concepts, methods, principles and theories relevant to the study of and practices within global media and journalism.

During this year, there are also options to study at non-EU partners in the spring semester. These are the University of California, the University of Technology in Sydney and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

Alternative specialism options for the second year of study are:

• Media and Politics, University of Amsterdam

• Journalism and Media Across Cultures, University of Hamburg

• War and Conflict, Swansea University.

The scholarships cover the cost of tuition and provide a living stipend.

Tuition fees for the full course for EU students are €18,000 and €16,000 for non-EU students.
