LSE and UCT MSc in Global Media and Communications 2022

The London School of Economics and Political Science calls for applications for its MSc Global Media and Communications (LSE and UCT) Scholarship.

MSc Global Media and Communications (LSE and UCT) is a unique double degree that allows students to study for one year at LSE in London, the UK’s media capital, and one year at the Centre for Film and Media Studies, University of Cape Town.

This programme will give students the opportunity to:

  • critically explore mediation in a global context, examining processes of globalisation in relation to organisation, production;
  • study a range of theoretical courses at LSE, flexibly tailoring the programme to develop specialist interests, culminating in an independent research project on a topic in global media and communications;
  • study a range of theoretical and/or practice-based courses at UCT and develop practical skills in an optional creative production at UCT;
  • gain professional experience during an internship in Cape Town;
  • prepare for high-level employment in media and communications-related professions anywhere in the world.

However, students will be trained to examine the intersection of media and globalisation from an African vantage point. They will gain an understanding of global media and communications in an African context and African media and communications in a global context. In the increasingly globalised world today, international experience gained on one of the global programmes is invaluable and provides an excellent knowledge and experience base to work from. 

Duration: 2 years


The scholarship covers a fee waiver for the first year and a monthly stipend.


The minimum entry requirements for the LSE-UCT scholarship are:

  • Upper second-class honours (2:1) degree or equivalent in social science, or a degree in another field with professional experience in media and communications.
  • Although only one application is need to apply to LSE, applicant must meet both the LSE and UCT entry requirements.
