The MediaAC Consortium has submitted a new grant proposal for #MediaAC to Erasmus+ (Erasmus Mundus Joint Master programmes) in February 2024.

The new program has some exciting changes!
Based on feedback and observations from previous cohorts, new elements of the curriculum are developed to further support each student’s individualized Learning Journey and involve new Consortium Partners. New Curriculum  In this new proposal, the three core Full degree-granting Partners (Uni Lodz, Aalborg Uni, Uni Krems) are rounded out through Associated Higher Education Partners (Lasalle College of the Arts, Aalto Uni, Uni Rijeka and Open Uni of Catalonia).

The intake for 2024 with new curriculum and MediaAC Consortium is on a self-funded external funding basis. Some Consortium Scholarships will also be available.

Requirements and chances for acceptance are the same for all applicants from all countries.

Applicants must have as first degree at least a Bachelor degree or higher issued by a university (quantified as three years of studies corresponding to 180 ECTS). Or (if ECTS is not used in countries where the first degree was acquired): proof a period of study at a higher education level considered comparable to a Bachelor’s degree (on decision of the MediaAC Admission board).

Please note: Degrees from certain countries require an Apostille or Legal Certification for enrolment. If you are accepted to MediaAC you must deliver this documentation prior to enrolment. Legalization is NOT required to apply, but must be verified before intake.

Applicants must also have sufficient knowledge of English for academic purposes corresponding to level B2 within the CEFR/Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This is to be sent directly from the test centre TOEFL  (School Code 8773/Art History) (PBT paper-based): 550, TOEFL (CBT computer-based, 230, TOEFL (iBT internet-based): 80, Cambridge ESOL, C1 An original or verified copy is accepted: IELTS (academic test): 6.5 Versant English Test with VEPT Score 56-60. Your tests results must be less than 2 years old from your application date to be eligible to submit.

Student’s prerequisite degrees will most likely be from the following: art history, cultural studies, media/communication studies, fine arts practice (media related), cultural management, museology, art restoration, library and archive science, computer science, and any other field directly related to digital media, the arts or culture. Other fields will be taken into consideration by the Application Board.

We do not require the 1st university degree to be in a certain field or subject. We do expect the applicant’s motivation to study in the MediaAC programme to balance his/her previous education, working experience (if applicable) and future career plans and that this balance make sense for playing a role in the future of Media Arts Cultures.
