Europe in the World (Aarhus, Denmark and Utrecht, The Netherlands)

All WORLDREP students undertaking exchange from Australia to Europe will participate in the Europe in the World program.

About the Europe in the World program:

The Europe in the World program is co-taught by our two European WORLDREP institutional partners: the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX) and the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU).

The program is competitive and attracts students from around the globe. Each year up to 25 international students are selected to participate; so, our WORLDREP exchange students from Australia will have the opportunity to mix and network with students from a range of different home countries and institutions during their exchange.

The program strives to produce graduates with the skills and experience to understand and report on complex cultural, social, environmental, political and economic contexts and issues within Europe. This is achieved through a mixture of traditional classroom and practice-based teaching, field work and independent and student team-based research and practice.

Please note: the Europe in the World program is taught in English.

Where you will study:

The Europe in the World program is co-taught by DMJX and HU and students will divide their time between these two host institutions (and two host countries).
