If you foster a passion in your heart to achieve academic excellence by studying abroad and earning a foreign Master’s degree, you too can make your dreams come true by applying to the prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship programme designed for students with outstanding academic and professional achievements.

The Erasmus Mundus Journalism Programme is a two-year Master’s degree programme that grants financial assistance and covers full tuition cost of graduates wanting to study abroad.

The journalism programme opened its application for the year 2020 on Friday, November 1, 2019 and applicants are advised to send in their applications by January 10 latest.

The dual degree programme that commences in the fall of 2020 i.e. September 1, 2020, invites students from all over the world to study in Europe, specifically Denmark (Copenhagen) in the first year, and in London in the second.

If you are planning to apply to the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship Programme, here is what you need:

1. A completed bachelor's degree, before course start, within a relevant field of study.
