Call for applications for Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation

The Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation welcomes applications from graduate students around the world. You must have completed a relevant bachelor degree (before course start) in order to be eligible for this programme.

You can apply for admission to the Mundus Journalism programme and for a Mundus scholarship within the same application process. If you want to apply for a Mundus scholarship, please tick off, which scholarship category you are applying for – Category A or Category B – within the Online Registration.

The Mundus Journalism Consortium receives around 500 applications each year. For course start in September the Mundus Journalism Consortium will select a group of 80-90 students. On average, half of each new intake is made up of students from within the European Union, with the rest of the participants collectively representing almost every continent and region of the world.

As we have 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2018-20 programme we expect that 25% will be offered admission as scholarship students, while 75% will be offered admission as self-funded students. Applicants who applied for a scholarship will also be offered the possibility of self-funded admission if selected by the Consortium for admission, but not for a scholarship.LGBTQ youth face higher risks for depression, suicide, substance use and homelessness, and those risks follow them into adulthood.

We inform all applicants (by e-mail) no later than March/April each year if they can be offered admission to the programme. If you are offered admission, you will be asked to confirm if you accept the admission offer (with our without scholarship) within the week after you receive the e-mail. We operate with this relatively short deadline, so that we can offer admission to another applicant, if you should decide to reject the offer.

Applications are open each year from the start of November until early January.

The right to publish in the magazine belongs to everyone!

MAKE A STAND – LET’S BUILD OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!

M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
