Qualification Requirements

Previous Degree

Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. Subjects within bachelor's programs in arts/humanities and social sciences are by default considered to be relevant. Applicants who have completed other programs, but whose qualifications are deemed by the Consortium to be relevant and adequate, may also be offered admission.

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 the course start in September.

Work Experience

Journalistic skills are required prior to the course start, at least 3 months of journalistic experience.

While there is no formal bar on applicants with related experiences – such as, for example, writing news for government departments or press offices of non-governmental organizations – such applicants should bear in mind that the application process is extremely competitive. Applicants with more conventional journalistic experience may, therefore, be offered places ahead of those who lack it. However, it is acknowledged that journalistic experience may take many forms. Hence "traditional" journalistic experience (composing stories for a published media outlet) is not the only accepted form of experience.
