Double degrees awarded

Following the successful completion of your exchange you will be awarded the following degrees and certificates:

  • Your home institution undergraduate degree (this is the degree you are enrolled in when you go on exchange; for example, the Bachelor of Arts (UTAS) or Bachelor of Journalism (Griffith))

PLUS:

  • Bachelor of Journalism (from the Danish School of Media and Journalism)
  • Honours Certificate (from the University of Applied Sciences Utrecht)
  • Europe in the World Certificate

Optional higher degrees

Students who commenced their exchange when they had one semester, rather than two semesters, remaining in their home institution degree may also be able to return to their home institution following their exchange and complete one further semester of study to complete an Australian Honours degree; for example, the Bachelor of Arts with Honours (Journalism, Media and Communications) from UTAS or the Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) from Griffith.

Eligibility

Undergraduate student at a participating institution

To be eligible to apply you must be a current undergraduate student at one of the participating Australian institutions (Griffith University or the University of Tasmania). International students studying at one of these institutions may be eligible for exchange providing the exchange will not take them to their home country. However, it is advised that students in this situation seek further advice regarding their eligibility (via World.Rep@utas.edu.au) prior to submitting an application as some exclusions may apply.

Journalism study

The exchange is aimed at students in their final year of undergraduate study who are pursuing a journalism major (or have demonstrated an equivalent commitment to journalism in their studies). To meet the academic prerequisites for entry into the Europe in the World program you will usually have completed 2-2.5 years of full-time study (or equivalent) including a minimum of a minor sequence (or beginning of a major sequence) in journalism. More information about what these requirements might look like at your home institutions and in your degree will be available from the "Apply" link above as soon as it is available.

Home institution degree

Although most participating students will be enrolled in a three-year undergraduate degree such as a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Social Science or Bachelor of Journalism as their home institution degree students pursuing other degrees (including combined degrees) may also apply. However, we advise these students to first seek advice regarding the structure of their degree (a.k.a. the degree 'rules') and whether or not that structure could accommodate the exchange study.

Please note: your home institution degree may also have specifications about the amount of 'credit' that can be granted towards your degree on the basis of study elsewhere (or study in another degree but at the same institution). Therefore, if you have previously been granted a significant amount of credit towards your degree you may find that there are limitations on how much additional credit you can receive towards your degree as a result of the exchange. Your home institution will be able to advise you about your options in this situation.

How to apply

The application process will vary depending on your home institution. However, as a general rule, you will be required to apply both for the WORLDREP program (c/o your home institution) and for admission to your host institution / exchange course (directly with that host institution). More information, including a step-by-step checklist will be available from the "Apply" link above as soon as it is available.
