ComDev courses

Dear all,

The spring application window for ComDev’s programs and courses is now open from 15 March – 15 April 2019 and we are once again looking forward to receiving your application.

Our 1-year flagship online blended learning MA program

You will find all the details on the 1-year MA page.

Based on the strong competition for spaces and experiences from previous admission rounds it will be difficult to get admitted to the program without submitting your application letter!

The MA program is a 50% full-time course taught in our online blended learning Glocal Classroom that we have pioneered, improved and enhanced for almost 20 years!
ComDev program coordinator Tobias Denskus introduced our Glocal Classroom in the context of Malmö University’s internationalisation efforts.

You can also read and listen to what graduates from the course have said about ComDev. We just uploaded three more profiles in connection with the ComDev experiences in the United Nations system, a portrait of one of our pioneering graduates from 2002 & a brand new short video:

The 2-year MA course package to study 60 more ComDev credits

For those of you who already completed 60 ComDev credits, the 2-year MA is now an easy-to-apply-to course package and you will find all the details on the 2-year MA page.

Advances in ComDev free-standing  15 credit course

And finally, our Advances in Communication for Development: Social Action, Planning and Evaluation course will be available again in the autumn. The course is part of the 2-year MA, but it can also be taken independently as part of your on-going professional development or a great way to get to know the ComDev learning environment better!

Please note that all applications have to be made through Sweden’s central university admissions website and that the ComDev team will only evaluate the letters of intent and not other parts of your application. University admission should always be your first point of contact regarding application matters, including formal qualifications or language requirements.

If you are a British citizen and wonder about the implications of a possible ‘Brexit’ the short (and legally not binding) answer is: It’s complicated…You are most welcome to apply, we appreciate that British students have always been an integral part of the ComDev community and we sincerely hope that things get sorted out and you will be able to study without paying fees in the foreseeable future!

Our colleagues at Malmö University admissions (admissions(at)mau.se) and our course administrator Josefin Waldenström can be contacted for technical questions regarding your application as well – and you can also get in touch with the ComDev team at comdev(at)mau.se – just allow a few days for replying individually during this busy period of the semester.

We are looking forward to your applications and welcoming you to Malmö in September 2019!
