2. Application Process:

Only complete applications that have been received at the coordination office in time can be considered for admission. The selection and admission process takes place in three steps: evaluation of the application, a recommended interview preparation, and a personal interview when possible.

Step 1: Online Application

Applications are screened initially by the Admissions Committee based on all submitted information, with special emphasis placed on academic qualifications and recommendations. Candidates who pass this stage will be notified within 4-8 weeks following the final application deadline of February 15th, regarding their participation in an interview (see Step 3). Rejection letters will be issued at the end of May.


The Admissions Committee processes all applications without delay. Please refrain from inquiries regarding the status of your application. You will be informed as soon as the results are available.

Step 2: Interviews

Applicants will be requested to attend an interview in Munich (travel expenses can't be covered by the program at this time). The interviews will be carried out during the following period:


International applicants that can not attend the personal interview will be scheduled for an interview by telephone.

3. Final Decisions on Admission:

The Admissions Committee will arrive at a final decision with regard to admission based on thorough evaluations of all steps by the end of May. Admission letters will be issued afterwards.
