Our research based knowledge on Danish journalists is rather limited. As a step toward filling this gap this article studies Danish journalism students. The main question is who these students are, to what extent there are differences between the students from different universities, and to what extent the students can be seen as being different from the general population. Students at Roskilde University with respect to some questions appear to be a distinct group of their own. Nevertheless, the over all conclusion is that journalism students are rather re-presentative for young people with a similar socio-economic background. These conclusions are based on the largest survey analysis of Danish journalism students to date.
