The one-of-a-kind Double Degree Master in Global Media and Communications gives students the chance to study and gain experience in two cities with close ties to the global media industries (London and Los Angeles, Shanghai or Cape Town).

In your first year, successful students will attend the London School of Economics (LSE) in London, the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, Fudan University in Shanghai, or the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa, all of which have excellent reputations.


  • 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.
  • You only need to apply to LSE, but you must meet both the LSE and UCT entry requirements.
  • Competition for places at the School is high. This means that even if you meet our minimum entry requirement, this does not guarantee you an offer of admission.
  • If you have studied or are studying outside of the UK, then have a look at our Information for International Students to find out the entry requirements that apply to you.
