What are the prerequisites?

Applicants for the International Media Studies Master's program require a recognized undergraduate degree (bachelor's or equivalent) and following that, at least one year's experience working in a media-related field.

Applicants require proof of English language skills. This can be acquired by taking a test at a recognized institution in your home country. Proof is not required for those who have English as their first language. You can find a list of recognized language tests and required levels in the downloads of the FAQ section.
